Tips provided by the National PTA

Teachers play a key role in student success and sometimes a simple “thanks” is all a teacher needs to feel valued. Take the time to celebrate your students’ teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week May 5-9.

Here’s how you can honor teachers:

  • Write letters and cards of appreciation to your students’ teachers throughout the week and ask you students’ teachers how you can support them throughout the year.
  • Show your support for the tremendous work teachers do by volunteering in your students’ classrooms.
  • Nominate your students’ teachers for local and national awards.
  • Share on Facebook and Twitter how you plan to appreciate your students’ teachers using the hashtag #ThankATeacher.
  • Pick up the National PTA's April/May edition of Our Children magazine, which is devoted to teachers’ perspectives and offers parents great advice for building a strong relationship with their students’ educators.
  • Follow the PTA Pinterest boards for more teacher appreciation ideas.
