Teacher Appreciation Week

2011 Teacher appreciations week had the Theme:  Our Teachers And Staff Are Our STARS!!!  (Successfully Teaching And Reaching Students) 

As the ACES Parents' Club we celebrate and thank not only our teachers during this week, but all the staff at the school.  This year due to budget cuts we had only 40 total staff and teachers. 

Monday started off the week of our theme, by putting up stars on each of the doors of the classrooms or the hallway for those who work in more than one classroom.  Each had their name and a picture.

Next we went to the Teachers Lounge and put decorations up on the doors, walls, ceiling and tables.  This was in preparation for The Awards Ceremony the next day.

Tuesday was a staff meeting.  What better time than some light snacks and awards.
Cheese and Cracker platters and sparkling cider on every table.

And what award ceremony would be complete without tuxedo strawberries.

Here is just one of the awards. It was so nice to see everyone giggle and comment on all the awards. I even heard a few comments that the awards were right on for describing the teachers. Afterward, I saw a few of the teachers even hung them up in their classrooms.

Wednesday was rather simple. We just left a starburst attached to a poem in everyone's boxes.

Each teacher and staff member on Thursday morning, received a "VIP Basket" filled with fun things ( 6 handmade cards, note pad, pencils, eraser, 30 stickers, a poem and a snicker doodle cookie).

Her is one of the cards someone made. There was a group who made the cards. I saw this one when I was getting every thing ready, and feel in love with it. The background was stamped with as stamp that says, " I would give up chocolate, but I am no quitter". Love it!!!

Remember this basket from a post a few post back.  Well this is what it was for.

And some more.
Lastly on Friday, I made these cards to go with our theme. Inside was a poem and a Visa Gift card from the Parents' Club


  1. WOW soo many amazing projects. It turned out great. Love it. The must have felt incredibly special.

  2. Hello - I am about to kick this project off for our school and I am wondering about the black stars. They look really big, is this posterboard? Did you cut them out with a cricut? thanks -

  3. 12 by 12 black card stock paper for the stars. I used the George cartridge to cut out the stars.

  4. What did you use for the "vanity lights"

  5. lights one the marque are just ping pong balls attached with glue dots.

  6. The following time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I know it was my option to learn, but I actually thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you might repair when you werent too busy in search of attention. online casino slots
