I’ve got Teacher Appreciation Week on my mind because it’s coming up at our school and guess who’s in charge of it at our school? That would be me. So, I’ve spent a lot of time this week working on gifts and posters and treats and schedules. I want to show you some of the teacher appreciation ideas we are using at our school for door decorating and spoiling the teachers along with a bunch of teacher appreciation gift ideas from others.
Teacher Appreciation Week: Sweet/Candy Theme Ideas:
Our theme at our school this year is “How Sweet It Is To Be Taught By You!” I think we have some fun things put together and some fun ideas, so I am going to start out by sharing those with you. I’ll give you a run down of our week and show you a few pictures!
We are kicking things off by handing out a lollipop and a schedule to the teachers the week before so they know what to expect:
I created a cute graphic for this that I will share with you so that you can use it as well if you would like to.
Our schedule for the week looks like this:
Here’s one you can use for yourself! Just right click and save and then use it in a photo program on your computer or use an online one like Pic Monkey. (The font I used is KG Next To Me Sketched which you can download free from DaFont.com)
Teacher Appreciation Door Decorating Ideas:
We had all of the room moms decorate doors in the building with the “sweet” theme. I took pics of some of my favorites to give you some ideas:
Monday: Candy Bar in the Teacher’s Lounge. We have a bunch of cute jars that will be filled with all different types of candy in the teacher’s lounge that day that the teachers can eat or take home.
We are also giving them a cute little bag of candy with a tag during the assembly that morning while the principal (she’s a trooper) sings “How Sweet It Is To Be Taught By You!”
Tuesday: Tuesday morning the teachers will be treated to a sweet breakfast in the teacher’s lounge. We are serving sweet rolls, muffins, fruit and dip.
Wednesday: The PTA is sponsoring a staff appreciation lunch.
Thursday: Mini cupcake bar in the teacher’s lounge! Super excited for this one! We’ll be serving my favorite-the salted caramel ones as well as chocolate and peanut butter, mint, coconut, red velvet and coconut.
Friday: We’ll finish things off with a fun “happy hour” in the lounge. The kids will be at an assembly and the teachers get an hour to enjoy drinks (soda and lemonade) with flavoring mix ins. They get a fun cup as a gift. (See that below in the gift section.) we’ll also have appetizers.
