Since 1984, 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 educating our children. Of course, this includes our classroom teachers, but we don’t want to forget our librarians, science teachers, specialists, para-educators, office staff members, campus custodians, cafeteria staff, crossing guards, and all the other special grown-ups at MME for making our school such a wonderful place!
At MME, our Teacher Appreciation Week Lead will determine a theme for the week, and then plan activities that are very easy for all students to participate in. The theme in 2018 was “Teachers Help Us Grow”, and the plans included:
- Monday: Teachers and staff will be entered into drawings throughout the week to win gift cards and gift baskets, courtesy of the PTA!
- Tuesday: Nacho bar lunch and desserts provided by the PTA and MME families.
- Wednesday: Bring your teacher a CARD or a DRAWING and deliver it to him/her today.
- Thursday: Bring your teacher a FLOWER today (from your garden, from the store, even homemade!)
- Friday: Bring your teacher a SMALL TREAT today. This can be something edible (a muffin, cookie, etc.) or not (a new pen, bottle of nail polish, etc.), store bought or homemade. Anything your teacher would consider a treat will be appreciated!
If you have any questions, please contact the Teacher & Staff Appreciation Committee Chair Kaitlin Dockins at email@example.com.
In addition to luncheons and treat boxes for the teachers and staff, MME PTA also supports the Math/Literacy/Coding Nights and Science Expo by providing food and snacks for participants and volunteers at those events.
