Teachers provide so much to our students—inspiration, motivation and, ultimately, their futures. From May 7-11, 2018, we would like to show our thanks and gratitude by treating them like a V.I.T. – VERY IMPORTANT TEACHER.
Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day, and their work and impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom. Join us during PTA Teacher Appreciation Week to #ThankATeacher for all that they deliver to our nation’s children.
How You Can #ThankATeacher
Take the time to show your appreciation this week. To help you thank the teachers in your lives for delivering so much, we’ve created certificates and flyers!
Here are a few more ways you can get involved:
- Have your school principal, PTA/PTSA President or student sign and present our ready-made appreciation certificates to the teachers in your life.
- Share photos and your activities during the week by using the hashtag #ThankATeacher on social media!
- On Thursday, upload a #TBT of you and your favorite teacher and thank them using the official hashtag #ThankATeacher.
