Question: Teacher appreciation week

Who pays for the teacher appreciation gifts? Should that come out of the PTO acct. or should the officers pay for them out of pocket? We only have 4 officers and over 30 teachers and staff which is going to get expensive really fast.

Hi davisyellowjacket,

Groups tackle this in different ways. Some groups do have a line item in the budget, while others may do a specific fundraiser or request for donations. We also know that many groups do lots of Teacher Appreciation events very inexpensively. For example, parent groups host luncheons for teachers in which parents donate the food.

Here are some articles that have fun and inexpensive ideas:

I offer to take a day during teacher appreciation week and bake Otis Spunkmeyer and David's Cookies. Either at the start if the so teachers come into the smell if fresh baked cookies or over their lunch break. This is a signing bonus for a fall sale breaches get to preview the product this way.
