Jensen Ranch Elementary will be celebrating our teachers all week long – beginning May 9th, 2016. As we have celebrated in the past, we ask students to bring a flower for their teacher on “California Day of the Teacher” which is on Wednesday, May 11.
This year, we would like to expand on this by asking students to bring our wonderful teachers something nice each day as they do so much for our children throughout the year.
Monday: Fruit Day (Example: a piece of fruit or perhaps another small sweet treat)
Tuesday: Beverage Day. (Example: tea packets, coffee beans, small amount Starbucks or Peets gift card, favorite soda or juice)
Wednesday: Flower Day (Example: a single flower from the store or your garden to add to others to make a class bouquet)
Thursday: Greeting Card Day (Example: store bought or handmade “Thank you” card from your child)
Friday: A Teacher Appreciation Lunch will take place after school on Friday, 5/13.
I know this can get confusing, as many of us may have heard that last week was Teacher Appreciation Week. Here’s the scoop:
Yes, this past week was National PTA Teacher Appreciation Week – which I know is what many of my friends around the country celebrate (even here in California). However, here at Jensen Ranch, we’ve always piggy-backed on California Day of the Teacher, which is something out of the California Teacher’s Association, and that’s when we have traditionally held the teacher appreciation lunch and brought in flowers for our teachers. This year, the PTA decided to expand on that week by making some suggestions on how we can celebrate all week long. I hope you’ll join us!
