PTA Teacher Appreciation Week
Teachers are real life superheroes. They educate, innovate, encourage and support. Every day they touch the lives of millions of children and their work and impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom.
Take the time to celebrate these real life superheroes during PTA Teacher Appreciation Week, May 2-6, 2016.
How You Can Show Appreciation
PTA Teacher Appreciation Week is the perfect time to thank teachers for the difference they make.
To help you plan for the week, we’ve created a Promotional Event Toolkit with ideas and resources you can use to honor teachers. Here's how you can get involved:
- Send a thank you card to a special teacher in your life or a teacher of a child in your life.
- Show your support for the tremendous work teachers do by volunteering in a classroom.
- Tell us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram about a teacher who had an impact on your life and how you plan to celebrate teachers during the week.
- Follow our PTA Pinterest boards for teacher appreciation ideas.
