I had no idea what to get our teachers for Teacher Appreciation this Friday, 2/28, so I did a little sleuthing at Exploris yesterday and created a list of things teachers wish they had at school. I thought I’d post the list just in case other parents are having as much trouble as I was.
These are suggestions that lots of teachers like, so I bought in bulk at Costco and will leave mine with Mary Margaret to store for the use of all the teachers and staff this spring.
NOTE: These are just ideas. If you already have a plan, don’t feel you have to pick one of these. The teachers were very clear that they love and appreciate anything and everything parents give to them.
- Protein Bars
- Bags of Trail Mix
- Dried Fruit
- Diet Coke
- Diet Pepsi
- Dr. Pepper
- K-Cups for the coffee machine
- Powdered Creamer
- Half and half (I bought some of the little cups that you don’t have to refrigerate. Apparently, the teachers LOVE creamer. They currently have almost a gallon of creamer from earlier this week, so no fresh half and half is needed at this time.)
- Office Supplies
- Post-it Notes (8th grade doesn’t need these.)
- Flair Pens
- Plastic Forks
- Plastic Spoons
