Don't forget, this week is Teacher Appreciation Week! Be sure to take some time out of your day to do something special for the educators in your life!

You often don't realize how much work teachers put in. They don’t leave their jobs at the "office" once school is dismissed. They spend a lot of long hours working up lesson plans, grading papers and coming up with fun and creative ways to teach new things.

Send them an ePraise or get crafty and make them a special gift. There is even plenty of time to order them one of our many new teacher appreciation gifts!

It doesn’t matter how you choose to recognize the teachers in your life, just be sure to let them know that their hard work doesn’t go unnoticed!

Thank Your School PrinciPAL on School Principal’s Day!

I'll never forget how to spell principal thanks to the little "my principal is my PAL" trick I learned in grade school. As I've gotten older I've learned a little bit more about what principals actually do (they do not, in fact, live at school and sleep in the school closet). Principals are truly responsible for being a PAL to everyone – teachers, staff, parents, students, board members, and community members!

School Principal's Day is celebrated on May 1 this year. So take a moment to tell your principal how much you appreciate all that he or she does on a daily basis. Send a free ePraise card or hand-write a note of thanks; include a gift card to the local bookstore or coffee shop, or decorate their office while they're out to lunch.

And while you're on a thanks and appreciation roll, remember that Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up May 4-10! Shop now for the best selection of teacher appreciation gifts!

Get your Lesson Plans Ready for Teacher Appreciation Week!

Teacher Appreciation Week is quickly approaching. If you haven't thought about what to do for this special week to honor the educators in your lives, we are here to help!

We have plenty of new education gifts to offer. My personal favorite is our, My Students Think I'm Kind of a Big Deal - Matte Black Coffee Mug. Hats off to our designers for coming up with this cheeky Smart Saying! We also have many low cost and DIY teacher gifts on our Pinterest page. Trust me, they are worth checking out if you love to get crafty!

I also recently learned from a co-worker, that not all teachers are celebrated on National Teacher Appreciation Week, which is May 4th - 10th. Instead, each school may have set aside their own separate week to celebrate teachers. Or, students wait to give their teachers gifts at the end of the year to thank them for their endless patience and the copious amounts of knowledge they have passed along. The point I am trying to make, is that it doesn't matter when you celebrate the educators in your life, just make sure they know that all of their hard work has not gone unnoticed!

Take a second and just think about your favorite teacher or teachers you had in school. Did you thank them enough for all of the things they taught you and let them know the impact they had on your life? If given the chance, would you go back and let them know now? Don't miss the chance to thank your child's favorite teacher or the people in your life who dedicate their lives to educating young minds!

It's Back-to-School Time! Tips for Starting Your Year Off Right!

by Falon

FalonIt's about that time... back to school. While my kids are complaining about heading back to class, I'm rejoicing that we're getting back into a routine! It's quite the paradox – I can't wait for school to get out for the summer and then 6 weeks later I am eagerly awaiting the first day of school. Any other moms with me? I know I can't be alone in this.

My other secret? I love to shop. And back to school means back-to-school shopping! Is there anything better than a new back pack, a fresh set of markers, clean folders, and blank notebooks? Absolutely not! I love it all. I love looking at the new styles and trends. The fluorescents are back in style and I couldn't be happier! My boys don't get nearly as excited as they should about squeaky clean new shoes, bold markers, classic markers, or scented pens.

You know who does share my love of new school supplies?
TEACHERS.

Teachers Make the Difference


Teachers usually supply a list of classroom needs at the beginning of the year and I love to supply a few extra items for the room, or a gift certificate to the local office supplies store. I like to put the supplies in a
Teacher's Rock tote bag, or the gift card in a travel mug as a nice welcome back to school gift for my kid's teachers.

Back to school also means back to...LUNCHES. Now this is a part of school that I HATE. I dread making lunches. To add a little pep to my step in regards to school lunches, I like to purchase a pack of
Peel & Stick Notes at the beginning of the year. These make adding quick little notes to my kids' lunches fun and easy! I once found one of my notes taped in my son's desk – so precious and so worth the time and money spent!

What are your favorite back-to-school tips? Do you love it or dread it? Share your thoughts and ideas with me! I'd love to hear them.

The End of the School Year is Near!

No more pencils, no more books…no more lunches, I'm off the hook! My oldest son has 2 days left of school and while I am so excited not to have to add 'pack lunch', 'check homework folder', or 'remember backpack' to my nightly to-do list, this time of year is also a great time for reflection and appreciation.

I remember the first day of school like it was yesterday, sending my little guy off on the bus for the very first time for all-day, every day Kindergarten. As he jumped off the bus at school, the principal was there to give each child a high 5 and welcome them to their first big day!

The teachers made school and learning fun, easing their nerves and giving each child newfound confidence for a lifetime of learning.

New friendships blossomed and after-school play dates were penciled in, not only adding to my son's little buddies, but adding some great new friends to my circle, as well.

The Christmas Program featured my younger son, the donkey, who wouldn't keep his hat on or stay in his designated place for the show.

The Spring Program was equally entertaining with singing, dancing, and again my younger son stealing the show by nearly dropping his pants {this kid is a wild card, if you can't tell…}

And as graduation nears, I am sure there will be tears as our precious little Kindergartener makes the step into a GRADE – 1st Grade (it's a big deal when you're six years old).

Throughout every step of the school year, the teachers, the librarians, the administrative staff, the principal, the bus drivers, and the classroom volunteers have all made an impact on my little guys. They've learned colors and numbers, addition and subtraction, reading and writing… Spanish and Music… Art and PE... they've also learned about consequences and forgiveness through the love and guidance of their teachers. Every teacher has made a difference.

Teachers Make the Difference


Take time to thank them for impacting your little ones in such a big way.

How will you recognize your child's teacher? Even the smallest gesture will
brighten their day!
