Thank you, teachers!

Thank you, teachers!

It’s that time of year! As the school draws to a close, it’s time to say thank you to those teachers who have worked so hard with our children this year. At our school, our kids have many different teachers, plus, I like to give ones to the receptionist and the custodial crew, so I find myself putting together many gifts.

In an informal poll of my teacher friends, they say you can’t miss with a gift card, so I tend to stick with that, but I feel it’s a bit underwhelming to simply hand over an envelope. So this year, I bought some inexpensive flowering plants and potted them in simple plastic containers. I used these envelopes (purchased at my local craft sore) to write a nice note, taped them to a colorful straw, and tucked a gift card in the envelope. For less than a dollar per gift, plus the cost of the card, I had gifts for all the fantastic educators in our lives.

Hooray for simple solutions!
