PTA Teacher Appreciation Week

2015 TAW Web Banner

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.

About Teacher Appreciation WeekSM

Since 1984, National PTA has designated the first week in May as a special time to honor the men and women who lend their passion and skills to educating our children.

PTA events at the national, state and local levels celebrate the outstanding contributions teachers make. We are also proud to recognize teachers and administrators with awards and grants

National PTA also serves on the selection committees for the National Teacher of the Year Program and People Magazine’s Teacher of Year Award.
