Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week starts today in the U.S.  There are lots of ways to recognize the hard work that teachers do throughout the year.  A heartfelt note from you and your child is always well-received.  Focus on specific things the teacher has helped your child with, or a special memory of your child’s favorite part of her days in class.

Teachers spend, on average, $998 of their own money every year on school supplies.  If you’d like to give a tangible gift, a gift card to help with those expenses would be much appreciated. 

To foster a positive and productive relationship with your child’s teacher all year long, check out these articles from PBS Parents on building your parent-teacher partnership, and talking with teachers.
