Teacher Appreciation Week

May 3-7, 2021

Looking for some ways to say "thank you" to our amazing teachers, staff and administrators? Read on for five fun ideas that can work for both in-person and distance learning.

#1 Write a thank you note

Sometimes, the simplest act is also the most meaningful. Ask your child to write a thank you card or draw a picture for their teacher.

 

You can send it to school directly or take a photo and email it. Click here for a list of Huffaker teacher, staff and administrator email addresses.

#4 Say "lunch is on us"

Treat your teacher to lunch from their favorite restaurant by sending them an e-gift card to a food delivery service like Grubhub or DoorDash.

 

Or, consider a gift card for a coffee shop, retail store or pampering service. The options are endless, and most can be purchased online and emailed directly to the recipient.

#5 Talk via sidewalk chalk (with the Hawks!)

Students, families and members of the Huffaker community are encouraged to decorate the sidewalks in front of Huffaker with colorful thank you messages or drawings honoring our fantastic teachers, staff and administrators during Teacher Appreciation Week.

 

PTA will make chalk available at the entrance gates--or bring your own chalk and join in the fun!
