there is a school staff survival kit I saw once with the following poem:
tea bag: to let you know you are tea riffic
bandaid: for the aid you provide
lifesavers: to remind you that you're appreciated a "hole" lot
2 pennies: so that you have the "cents" to realise how valuable you are
mint: to remind you that we are thankful for your commit-"mint"
tootsie roll: for the important "role" you play
paper clip: for keeping things organized
crayon: to colour you days cheerful and bright
rubber band: to remind you to stay flexible.

A Hug because sometimes you just need one.
A Kiss to remind you that you are loved.
A Snickers because sometimes you just have to laugh.
An extra â€˜â€˜eyeballâ€™â€™ because sometimes you need one in the back of your head.
An extra Payday because everyone could use an extra one of those.
A Tootsie Roll to remind you not to bite off more than you can chew.
A $100 Grand because you deserve it.
A Life Saver because you truly are.
A Milky Way because you are one of the brightest stars in the galaxy.
An Almond Joy because sometimes you feel like a nut.
A Mounds because sometimes you donâ€™â€™t.
Some Reeseâ€™â€™s Pieces because sometimes you just need a little peace.
One Promise that you can break.
A Baby Ruth because sometimes you just want to run home.
A Mars because youâ€™â€™re out of this world.
A bag to help you â€˜â€˜keep it all together.â€™â€™â€â€
TOOTHPICK so you won't be too picky
LOLLIPOP to help you lick your problems (or lick your wounds)
RUBBER BAND to help you be flexible
PAPER CLIP so you can hold it all together
STRING so you can tie up loose ends

Get some little ziploc bags - place contents inside, along with a piece of paper the size of the bag with either a classroom scene or red heart or some other little clip art at the top - to symbolize their giving heart.
