Teacher Appreciation Week is May 3rd-7th 2010. I was wondering if you were doing something for thr teacher? Since I am the Room Parent I was thinking of having the teacher fill out a survey I create of various small things she might would like and send it home to the parents. And each day of the week have a different small token of love for her each day. And the last day I can get her something bug since i am holding the money for the class.

 No, I have never did anything such as you are planning. But we do have the kids make the teacher a card or a poem. I like your idea though, very thoughtful!

I haven't decided yet what I will have the boys do. I'm thinking my 2nd grader will take his teacher a small potted plant or a cactus or something cool. Will have to do more thinking about my 4th grader's teacher because it's a guy and flowers seem too girly.

Our school does a lot for teacher appreciation week, but what the teachers seem to like the most are handwritten notes from the kids or parents telling them why they are appreciated.

I have never heard of TAW. I don't think we do anything for it. Cute idea though. Good luck

We are having the kids write thank you notes and then on Friday each child will bring in a flower for her. I am the room mom so I will buy a vase for her so that she can put all 21 flowers in it.

Our school celebrates by having days that you bring in their favorite something... a flower one day, candy another, etc.   I usually pick a day or two to send something in.

I'm a teacher and at the school I'm at, in the 3 years I've been here, I don't remember them doing much.  I think they may provide a breakfast but that's it.  All the other schools I've worked for, have gone out of their way for their teachers.

Thanks I think teachers are under-appreciated. I'm not a teacher but have always told I should be one since I love kids and seems like I love being at the school,lol. I might as well get paid for my time

Same thing in our case.

I agree that teachers are very under-appreciated.  I have loved all five teachers my son has had so far.  I do make a point more than once in the school year to tell them that I value what they do for my son.
