PTA Teacher Appreciation Week
Teachers play a key role in student success and sometimes a simple “thanks” is all a teacher needs to feel valued. Take the time to celebrate your students’ teachers during 2015 PTA Teacher Appreciation Week May 4-8.
How You Can Show Appreciation
PTA Teacher Appreciation Week is the perfect time to personally thank your students’ teachers for their sacrifices and support for children throughout the year.
To help you plan for the week, we’ve created a promotional toolkit with ideas and resources you can use to honor teachers. Here's how you can get involved:
- Send a thank you card to your students’ teachers and ask you students’ teachers how you can support them throughout the year.
- Show your support for the tremendous work teachers do by volunteering in your students’ classrooms.
- Tell us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram how you plan to appreciate your students’ teachers in the #ThankATeacher Social Media Challenge.
- Follow our PTA Pinterest boards for teacher appreciation ideas.
