Teacher Appreciation Week

Flowers are beautiful, food and treats are always appreciated, but nothing melts our hearts during Teacher Appreciation Week quite like hand-written notes of thanks from our students.



Dear Teachers, Thank you for teaching me. You have a great class. It’s warm and I want to tell you a tiny secret. The best part is the teachers in the class. Love, Sophia.

This one is from a first grader. Her teacher, Jenna, says of the note, “I think she hit the nail right on the head. It’s not the fancy anchor charts, facilities, or test scores that make a classroom “warm” it’s the teachers and the way that they love.”

Our thoughtful students didn’t forget our hard-working specials teachers. This is a note from a 5th grade student to her theater teacher, Alicia:


Dear Alicia, I would like to write you a note of thanks for all of the wonderful things you have taught us. Like, what blocking is and about center stage. In this letter, the spot light is on you. You have transformed a boring, sad, hopeless class into an exciting, new, inspiring class. I love how you teach theater and I hope you never stop. You are amazing. Thank you for being you. I am excited for Alice in Wonderland because theatre is my life and I think you feel the same. Sincerely, Joss/ Queen of Hearts

In short, we hope you keep the flowers and candy coming, but never underestimate the power of a hand-written note to truly touch a teacher’s heart. Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!
