Teacher Appreciation Week 2017

Teacher Appreciation May 8-12

Maggie Gallagher quote

Do you have a favorite teacher, present or past?  Most people do.  In fact, most can attest to the influence that some particular teacher has had on their lives—maybe a boost of confidence when they really needed one, maybe extra help given when they had trouble, or maybe the teacher simply provided a welcoming environment when everything else in the student’s life seemed out of control.

Since 1984, the National PTA has designated one week in May as a special time to honor the men and women who lend their passion and skills to helping kids learn.  This week, May 8-12, Hamilton MS Student Council has the following (fully optional!) suggestions for Hamilton students or parents who would like to recognize their teacher and/or say thanks for good work:

  • Monday, May 8    - You can give a Verbal Compliment.
  • Tuesday, May 9 -  Our school will sponsor a special teacher luncheon.
  • Wednesday, May 10 - You could share a treat (store bought or home made).
  • Thursday, May 11 - You could write your teacher a card or letter, telling them thank you, or how much they meant to you, or how much you appreciated it when ...
  • Friday, May 12 - You could share flowers (Buy, Make or Pick)

If you appreciate your teacher, it’s certain the teacher will appreciate you saying so.  Why not take a moment to share a kind word or something else nice?  You will feel good, too!
