Teacher Appreciation Week is May 8-12, 2017. We can’t wait to #ThankATeacher with you!
This year’s theme is “Teachers Deliver.” And they do! Teachers deliver so much to our students—inspiration, motivation and, ultimately, their futures. From May 8-12, 2017, we would like to celebrate teachers and deliver our thanks and gratitude to them.
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 a Promotional Event Toolkit with sample social media messaging, images to use on Facebook and Twitter, print color fliers and more!
Here are a few more ways you can get involved:
- Have your child sign and present our ready-made thank-you cards to their teachers!
- 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.
