What is Teacher Appreciation Week

Raising children is difficult, which is why we have Mother's Day, and Father's Day {and Grandparent's Day} to honor the people in our lives who make the most impact. Teachers, as a group, have a significant impact on our children, which is also a difficult job. So it's not surprising they've earned their own day…..wait, actually it's a week!

There's a National Teacher Day in May with a corresponding National Teacher Appreciation Week, but local school districts vary on when to honor their educators. Ours is typically in April and we have a GREAT time saying thank you.

Since they still have to work through the week, this event is about teachers being SEEN, honored, and celebrated. There are typically Four parts to the event:

  1. Door Decorating: The school and each door are decorated to match a theme chosen by the PTA Presidency. Parents volunteer to decorate a door of their choosing the Friday before Teacher Appreciation Week begins.
  2. Special Food: Daily Snacks in the break room and a special luncheon mid-week. Extra points for on-theme snacks!
  3. Extra Time: Parent volunteers take over lunch and recess duty for the week to give teachers a chance to catch up, or just take a break.
  4. Thank You Gifts: Our school has parents donate $10 gift cards for the teachers to various locations like Target, Starbucks, and Walmart. Individual students often bring cards and small tokens of their appreciation as well.

So there you go. I love sending little gifts and thank you notes to the teachers. I'm in awe of their hard work and SO grateful. I've got a whole collection of teacher thank you cards in the shop if you need something to gift this year.

Harry Potter Teacher Appreciation Week Theme

Welcome everyone and introduce the theme on the school lobby bulletin board.

Don't worry about what other people are doing. It's okay if they have a similar theme. We've got another fireplace with letters on the door and it works great! Substitute a photo of your teacher instead of the Dursley family.

Teacher Door Decorations – I Solemnly Swear

I solemnly swear brick wall Harry Potter Teacher Appreciation door

“I solemnly swear we are learning in here” door. It can be partial – some teachers prefer to still see out of the window.

Or it can be the full door. I love using the footprints with the kids names.

Flying Keys Door Appreciation Decorations

Flying Keys - Harry Potter Teacher Appreciation door

This brown paper door with drawn wood slats is an awesome way to welcome teachers to the faculty lounge. Add a couple black hinges and a lot of flying keys. Use wax paper for sheer wings and cut out pretty gold keys.

Winged Handprint Keys Harry Potter Teacher Appreciation door

Or you can personalize the winged keys by using student hands as the wings and affix real metal keys. Each child wrote why their teacher is the best!

Quidditch Teacher Appreciation Door Decorations

Seekers of knowledge - Harry Potter Teacher Appreciation door

Quidditch has a whole host of fun names to use. This one creates “Seekers” of knowledge and each student's name is written on a little broomstick with a large 3D broomstick attached under 3 quidditch goal posts and a waiting snitch. This is MY door.

I designed it after the Seeker of Knowledge Thank You cards I created with the same phrase.

A real Keeper Harry Potter Teacher Appreciation door

This door uses the golden snitches for student names and plays up the “Keeper”. But I definitely love the wordplay of “Let's get Sirius”!

Special Program Classroom – French Immersion

Enter at your own risk – Crossing this door with result in speaking French. And “wand” is translated to “Baguette magique” hence the teacher holding a bread baguette! Super clever and really fun! Hooray for French Immersion.
