I used one of your ideas for a teacher gift and made a staff member cry

Well a whole school gift. Before school today my middle school children and I went to the store and got a bunch of lunch meat, some macoroni salad, potato salad, veggies and fruit and rolls. We took all the bags to the school with a card thanking them for all they do for my kids (especially my son who has many special needs and is very hard to handle). One of the staff members who works very hard with my son actually cried and hugged me. She told me I am the 1st parent to really show thanks for them in this manner and she was overwhelmed and apologized for the tears. So today the entire middle school staff has lunch on us and I am so happy they appreciate it:)

People never realize that teachers get so little appreciation. I mean I am sure you can see it on here.

We always have done stuff for elementary school and my sons ED teachers, but so many teachers interact with my middle schoolers daily it was hard to come up with a gift for each, so last year I did nothing. This year I figured I would do a lunch. I got the idea from another post lol

Some people think a coffee cup is a good thank you but your idea is definitely better
