Which led me to The Lego Movie! If you haven't seen the movie, go rent it! Adults and kids will get a kick out of it. And it has some really funny and touching moments. The theme song for the movie is "Everything is Awesome, Everything is Cool when you're part of the Team". Those words perfectly capture exactly how the kids at our school feel about their teachers. They are all awesome, and they make our kids feel cool to be part of the team.
So with a theme decided, I began working. Our Staff Appreciation Week has several parts. First, up I collected donated gift cards from the parents to award to the staff. The gift cards will be used in a drawing every morning during that special week. I publicized the collection of gift cards in our school newsletter with this graphic.
Next, I chose different activities for each day during Staff Appreciation Week. That way the kids could get involved with making our teachers feel extra 'awesome'. Here is the flyer that I sent home to all the kids that details 'The Plan'. (If you have seen the movie, you know all about following 'The Plan'. )
The next several days give the kids a chance to bring their teachers something. (At the beginning of the year I had each teacher fill out a 'favorites' list. All the homeroom moms have them on file and have emailed copies to the classroom parents.)
After the week is over, I will be back to share some photos. I am really excited to spoil our staff. They really are awesome!
