Teacher Appreciation Week!

May 4th - 8th

Celebrate our Teachers!

The National PTA has again designated the first week of May as Teacher Appreciation Week! What a wonderful way to show our admiration and gratitude to those that teach our children every day! As administrators, Judy, Liz and I are thrilled to have such a terrific group of teachers in our school. Each teacher has worked so hard to provide a consistent and caring environment for all of the children in our program.

To show them our appreciation for all that they do, we will be organizing some special activities that we hope each parent & child will take part in during Teacher Appreciation Week. This year’s theme is “All Star Team!” The schedule for the week of May 4 – May 8 is as follows:

Teacher Appreciation Week at The Cottages

Monday, May 4th, 6:30am to Friday, May 8th, 6pm

602 McIntosh Rd

Sarasota, FL

Weekly Agenda

· Monday, May 4th: “FAN CLUB MAIL”, please take just a moment with your child to write a thank you note to your child’s teacher. What a nice way to recognize their hard work and start off the week a little warm & fuzzy!


· Tuesday, May 5th: “BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS”, we would like to have a breakfast buffet for our fabulous teachers. If you would like to bring a dish, please sign up in the front office. Thank you!


· Wednesday, May 6th: “CONCESSION STAND SNACKS”, if you are able to bring in a small treat for your child’s teacher; popcorn, candy bar, cookies, beverage, etc. You can just leave these items in the room for them when you drop off in the morning! Just a nice little pick me up for our wonderful teachers!


· Thursday, May 7th: “TAIL GATE PARTY”, we would like to give our teachers a yummy lunch mid-week. If you would like to bring an item please sign up in the front office. Thank you!


· Friday, May 8th: “TIME OUT”, we would like to be able to give each teacher a $30 gift card to their favorite restaurant. If you are able to give a $5 contribution, please put it in an envelope and give it to an administrator in the front office by Wednesday, May 6th (so we have time to go and purchase the gift certificates on Thursday). The gifts will be presented to the teachers on Friday from the children/families in their class.
