We are not the only ones seeking to show appreciation to our teachers. Check out the above website. I am so thankful for Acme Sharing in sending me this link. I love their pitch for adoptaclassroom.
The average public school teacher ends up paying around $1,200 out of pocket for classroom supplies each year, and that is just so uncool.
Adopt a classroom is a non-profit website that lists the NEEDS of classrooms across the country. what about making a donation to this organization in honor of your own teacher?
or, if you think your teacher might fall into the category of having to shell out for your kids supplies, a gift certificate to LAKESHORE LEARNING is ideal.
Then you can present them with something very personal. we are writing dramatic and heartfelt cards. did i mention dramatic? and perhaps a small pampering kind of gift, like a pedicure.
just think of all the candles that don't have to live in a constant state of re-gift.
I praise God that we are doing this for the Burbank Elementary School. May God get the honor and the glory as we show appreciation to those who labor so hard and dedicate time, emotion, and even money to educate our children. "In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16)."
