Are you doing year end gifts for teachers and if so, what are you giving them? Last year we did gift cards (Target, Michael's etc) but we did that for Christmas this year so I feel like I should do something different.
For the end of the year for his 2 therapist and the 2 paraprofessionals we gave $10 gift cards and for his teach we gave her $15. All the GC came from Target. We do the same at Christmas but we gave more at Christmas. It all adds up so quick! I wrote a nice thank you card to everyone.
Oh and $10 to DS bus driver! (Target too)
I ordered screen-printed canvas totes off of Etsy. Which reminds me, I need to check the package tracking because they should be here this week. (Preschool ends next week).
I plan to put some baked goods and maybe a piece of fruit in each one, plus a note for each of them thanking them specifically for how they've helped DD1.
Between therapists and teachers, we've got like five people to account for.
jlw2505: Another great idea that I heard about from a friend was to have your child pick out some items for the classroom such as books and art supplies - things that the classroom always needs and that many teachers buy with their own money.
I love this idea!
I bought little baskets at Michael's, filled the bottom with crinkle paper and put these things inside with a little sign that said, "I couldn't have PICKED a better teacher." You could also say, "You are the Berry Best!"
I liked another thing I saw with a Mason jar filled with homemade cookies and a sign that said, "Thanks to you, we're smart cookies."
