Thank You Teachers
Today is the last day of school for my kids. They are so excited for summer break! I didn't want to let these last days of school go by without giving their teachers a little gift of thanks. They have been blessed with AWESOME teachers this year!
This gift was a bit different than what I normally give, but I knew it would be appreciated by her teacher.We took her this basket of goodies for her to use next year in her class. They will not be getting any funds for supplies, so I hope this will help out just a little. It is a plastic tote I filled with copy paper, colored copy paper, dry erase markers, post its, Lysol wipes and a handmade card from Laci. I also attached a thank you note from my husband and I. Thanks Mrs. Deem!
My son has 3 teachers, so I opted to give all of them a potted flower with a little pick that says,"Thanks for helping Trent bloom!" I saw this cute idea at Skip To My Lou and thought it was perfect! I thought giving a flower was great because it's something that is different and they can enjoy it longer. I simply printed out the center for the pick and then punched a cute scalloped circle and glued them together. I then taped that onto a wooden stick. I also covered up the black pot with a piece of Kraft paper and tied on a ribbon. This one was still a bit wet as you can see. The teachers were thankful for the flowers and I'm thankful they were my son's teachers. Thanks Mrs. Parmer, Mrs. Pendergast and Mrs. Hurst!
