• Lights, Camera, Appreciation!

    Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week!

    Teacher Appreciation Week Theme Lights Camera Appreciation
    It is always a struggle to come up with a well thought out theme for Teacher Appreciation Week. At our school we also like to think about and thank the other staff at the school. We had a bunch of stars left over from an event and decided to just go with it. Thus you have, lights, camera, appreciation!

    Instead of having the room parents decorate the doors this year, we had them trace a bunch of stars on butcher paper. This is also a great idea to gather your room parent tribe and talk, have some snacks and get stuff DONE! We had  a few cute teenagers with fancy lettering step up and help out with writing all the teachers names. They felt like stars!

    We then went to work on the teachers lunch room. The black and red curtains are just plastic table cloths sewn through with some string to gather them up. We then hung them up on command hooks. The stars are hung on a black ribbon that attaches to the top. The gold stars on the side were wooden cutouts wrapped in wrapping paper. ( You could have totally spray painted these as well but we borrowed them.) The rest is stuff is from the dollar store or oriental trading. 
    PTA pro tip: Do NOT use duck tape on any service if you want to remain alive. 
    For the centerpieces we went simple. Again all stuff bought at the dollar store however the little Oscar guys were all cut out by a room parent and her mad cricket skills. (Bless volunteers.) 
    Everyday that week we had a little something for the teachers and staff. One day we did a snack bar with popcorn and treats. We picked up a bunch of the treats in the bulk section at winco. For the bags we just got some red paper sacks and paper punched a star through them.
    *PTA pro tip: Fill up the bag halfway with popcorn first so they don't take so much candy.
    For our bulletin board right outside the office we made all our teacher STARS!

    For other items I put together this package of printables. It includes one poster, and 2 cute handouts. The one on the left are bag toppers and the one on the right is a place to put a red box code as a gift to the teachers. We got our printables printed on red paper wrote down the codes and then attached to some popcorn to handout.
    PTA pro tip: Each teacher has to sign for the red box code in order to be reimbursed.
