2021 Teacher Appreciation Week May 3rd-7th
Teacher/Staff Appreciation week is coming up next week, May 3rd-7th. Check out the picture below and keep an eye out for a Talking Points memo for ways your student can show their appreciation next week!
We would love to gift each staff member a gift card from one of their favorite places to show our appreciation for all they have done this year. This year has been incredibly difficult for all essential workers and that certainly holds true for teachers, administrators, and all school personnel.
As our PTA is a non-profit, we are prohibited from purchasing gift cards with PTA money, so we are asking our Viking Families and community members to help us out and send a Venmo donation to our PTA President, Jessika Zimmer (@Jessika-Zimmer), with VHES as a note. We will combine all Venmo donations in order to purchase gift cards for our staff. If you'd like to donate using a method other than Venmo, please contact our PTA via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will figure something out Please share with any friends, neighbors, family members, or community members/businesses you think might want to contribute. The more we get, the more we can give. Thanks for your help!
If you're looking to do something special for your child's teacher, but aren't sure what to do, check out our list of Teacher/Staff Favorites for gift ideas you child's teacher will love.
