Teacher Appreciation Week

    Posted 04/25/2017

    It’s that time of year again when our PTA celebrates the wonderful teachers here at McKinley-Thatcher Elementary School! This year, Teacher Appreciation Week is the week of May 1st. As usual, PTA will be honoring our teachers throughout the week, and they invite YOU and your children to participate in these efforts, too. Please see below for a quick run-down on some of the general events scheduled for the week, as well as information on how you can participate.

    PTA needs your help with the annual Teacher Appreciation Luncheon, which is coming up this Monday, May 1! PTA relies on our amazing school community for donations to make this luncheon possible. Please click here to sign up to donate to the luncheon.

    MON., May 1: Teacher Appreciation Luncheon

    This event, complete with a HUGE buffet provided by our families–and raffled prizes, too–has become a favorite among our returning teachers! PLEASE consider donating an item (click here), as this event can only be successful with lots of participation from our families.

    TUES., May 2: Bring-a-Flower-to-School-Day!

    Please consider sending your children to school with a single hand-picked or purchased flower for each of their teachers…and please don’t forget those wonderful teaching assistants and specials teachers! The goal is for each teacher to build a gorgeous bouquet created by their students!

    WED., May 3: Bring-A-Card-or-Gift-to-School Day!

    Please let your children know that this is the day to bring a piece of artwork, a homemade card, a heartfelt note, or anything else that expresses their appreciation for their teachers!

    THU., May 4: Starbucks & Bagel Breakfast!

    To start the day off right!

    FRI., May 5: Teacher Happy Hour and Closing Raffle!

    What better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo AND our teachers than with special treats in the middle of the afternoon, served in the teachers’ lounge? The week will also culminate in a final raffle drawing, when our teachers will have another chance to win some fantastic prizes!
