Teacher appreciation week is a big deal at our school. Our instructors are treated to homemade lunches, special treats, gift bags, and more. Elementary school teachers deserve a great deal of thanks for all they do BUT…
We can’t forget about ALL the other people that make an elementary school run smoothly.
Faculty and Staff Appreciation
Who makes your school special?
- The smiling school secretary who remembers hundreds of parent names and welcomes kids into the building each day.
- The tender school nurse who cleans up a badly scraped knee after kick ball and soothes a feverish child until the parents can arrive.
- The helpful custodian who keeps the school in top condition and cleans all those tiny toilets.
- The patient aids and paraprofessionals who dole out extra help and tackle any necessary task.
All of these employees (and even more whom I am forgetting) contribute to a great school environment.
How to Say Thanks to Everyone
It’s nearly impossible to give something special to each and every person who aids des in your kids’ education each school day. My budget does not stretch nearly as far as my gratitude!
These easy popcorn labels are the perfect solution! A bag of microwave popcorn costs about $0.50, add a cute printable label for a few cents and you have a gift that is both affordable and adorable.
My kids and I spent an hour making more than 40 bags of popcorn to hand out during teacher appreciation week. I also made a cute bucket label so I could place some of the popcorn in the school lounge for break time and after school pick me ups!
Easy Peel and Stick Teacher Gift
The end of the school year can be crazy so I designed these stickers to print on Avery label sheets. Just peel and stick your way to great teacher gifts!
2 – Peel and stick small popcorn labels to popcorn packets. (I used grosgrain ribbon to wrap the packages and used the sticker to secure the ends of the ribbon.)
3 – Place the popcorn in a large decorative pail then add shredded paper for extra pizzaz!
4 – Add a label to the outside of the bucket.
I hope you enjoy this easy teacher appreciation gift. It makes end-of-school-year gift giving a snap. Sign up for my free newsletter to get more free printables and easy gift ideas.
