Teacher Appreciation Week

Zoomin’ & Bloomin’  through the school year!


Teacher Appreciation Week is quickly approaching! It takes place Monday, May 3rd, through Friday, May 7th. Our teachers have helped us with so much this year, and all through extraordinary innovation and flexibility! This is a great opportunity to offer some appreciation to our teachers and staff for all that they do. There are several components to the week, including an option to contribute to a group gift and participate in a spirit week!

Participation is not required, but these are provided as a way to share ideas of how we can celebrate our teachers together. Feel free to thank your teacher in a way that is meaningful to your family, whether it is on this list or not.

In addition to the information included on this page, please keep an eye out for communication from your room parent. They may have something that your class is doing as a group. At minimum, they will have Teacher Favorites lists for you.

You can find the Middle School Teachers’ Favorites lists here.

Also, one of our Art Docent Leads, Janet Smith, has put together some art videos for our families to make teacher “thank you” cards for Teacher Appreciation Week. Check it out here!

Parent School Partnership Group Gift

We are trying something new this year. All the previous ways of celebrating your teacher are still great – thank you notes, kid-drawn pictures, gift cards, treats from their favorite’s lists, etc. – but this year, you can also join in on the PSP group gift. The PSP is organizing a group gift to staff and teachers of a bouquet of flowers ($15) and a Gator tumbler ($10). If you are interested, follow the links to sign up for a $5 slot for your teacher or staff, and you can help directly pay online for these sweet tokens of appreciation to your teacher. The links are divided into 2 groupings: TK – 6th grade, and Middle School/Gateway staff. Thank you for helping make this week special!

Spirit Week

Each day during Teacher Appreciation Week will have a different theme of a way that you can show your appreciation to your teacher. Check out the Zoomin’ & Bloomin’ flyerfor more details. Let’s BLOOM into the week! Here’s a quick rundown:
