Today is National Teacher Day.

Don't worry if the holiday snuck up on you. The NEA has some cool electronic greeting cards your kids can email to their teachers. As an added bonus, the teacher's name will be included on what's being called the nation's largest teacher thank-you card. (You can snail mail your own cards to be incorporated into the giant card, too.)

Today's also a good time to think about ways your parent group can appreciate teachers all year long. Be sure to check out our article on this topic, Teacher Appreciation Done Right, which has great ideas on how to do just that.
