Thank you PTO and students for Teacher Appreciation Week!

The teachers at Hillside School were overwhelmed this week - in a good way! Each day, we arrived at school to find some sort of special treat presented by the PTO in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week. We are so blessed and grateful.

Here are the "treats" given to use each day:

Monday - Flowers on our doors with each petal containing a special "Thank you" from different students

Tuesday - a Flash Drive on our desk with a special note, along with muffins, pastries, bagels, m&ms in the teachers' room, and a served "afternoon coffee/biscott cart" for teachers

Wednesday - candles in the teacher's room to choose from, "Wear Your Teacher's Favorite Color" Day

Thursday - granola bar and water and a thank you note on our desks

Friday - Pay Day bar, "We are lucky to have you" message, lottery ticket, and a delicious CATERED LUNCHEON - yum!

PTO moms, thank you so much for all your hard work. We feel so loved and supported. A special thank you to Mrs. Weipz and Mrs. Braunstein, coordinators of the week.


  1. Love the week of goodies you received. Can you tell how they made the flowers? I'd love to know.

    1. Each student was given a flower petal (not sure how it was sent home - in an envelope by the PTO maybe? or given email directions?) and returned the flower petals to the PTO. The week coordinators taped the petals together into a flower and then taped the flower on each teacher's door. This was done for special area teachers as well as reg. classroom teachers.
