    Our school is celebrating all week although today is the official teacher appreciation day. I am going to Chipotle for their BOGO offer! I've only been there once and with so many people saying how good it is I can't wait!!

    Thanks :) No but did anyone receive anything for Teacher Appreciation Week yet? Did your schools do anything for Teachers? I know at my school the teachers got a breakfast and I sent out appreciation emails to 8 teachers.

    Usually, my school sends out tokens of appreciation. Got a golf umbrella last year that has really come in handy. Nothing so far, but I'm checking my mailbox.

    Happy Appreciation Day to you all as well!!!

    I've been dreaming about Chipotle tonight-it's my favorite, but the husband limits my trips. Any excuse to go there is welcome. ;)

    We are having a lunch tomorrow to celebrate, but of course my class is on a field trip all day. I'm super bummed. I love big lunches with my co-workers.

    Lovely brunch given by PTO ths morning, crumb cake and fruit platters from Superintendant yesterday. One of my students left an Archie comic book on my desk as a gift :)love: told my kids I used to ride my bike to 7-11 when I was a kid to get a Slurpee and an Archie comic in the summers.. Still love Archie and have always pictured myself as Betty:woot:) a tutoring family gave me a lovely box of gourmet chocolates this afternoon.

    Enjoy your week all! Hope you're feeling appreciated!

    Hope everyone is enjoying their week -- everyone here who posts definitely are well deserving of this week!

    Whether it's because of Teacher Appreciation Week, state testing, or a mix of both, it's definitely not sub appreciation week ;) - after 5 pre-planned days, AESOP has been dry as a bone the first two days (and so far, tomorrow as well) this week...never been this dry outside of the very beginning of the year!

    So far we have gotten candy and snacks after lunch but usually at the end of the week we will get a breakfast and a small present.

    We were treated to a fantastic Italian lunch yesterday, and each morning there's been a little treat in our mailbox. A couple of students have brought in little gifts, too! :)

    Two schools. A parent brought in excellent home made cup cakes
    A barbecue lunch one day from PTO.
    My other school? Greek salad from a nearby restaurant today.
    Nice barbecue lunch Thurs and always enough for two days.
    And Friday Subway for all. Oh and a free drink coupon from Sonic this week.
    I used to ride my bike to the local drug (all purpose) store and buy my Spiderman comic for 13 cents and a sprite from the machine for a dime.
    My 9 year old likes those Archie comics now.

    Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

    My school is awesome. On Monday we had a catered lunch (Moe's) and yummy cupcakes and cookies, on Tuesday we had little calendars and pens in our mailbox, today we had a candy buffet (with bags to store it in) waiting for us in the sign-in room, and on Friday we'll have a big breakfast.

    My students have been really sweet too. Flowers, soaps, a really cute picture frame, snacks and tea.

    I feel very appreciated. :)

    Happy Teacher Appreciation Week.

    Nothing from anyone for us here. :(

    On National Teacher Appreciation Day, however, I arrived home after school to a proposal from my boyfriend!!! Definitely made my day right there!!

    Hi yourself, Diznee. I spend a lot of time on the Twitter #edchat and the science blog/Pinterest these days. And I'm so out of the box, I kind of feel like people here are scared of me. Whenever I do come here, however, I feel like I'm at a family reunion. Such nice people!

    I've been wondering where some people have been off to. Glad to see you stopped in to see the "family"! Hope all is well!

    We have gotten nothing, even after someone quietly reminded the admins that it was teacher appreciation week.:mad: They did recently make a big deal out of secretary day and nurse day (richly deserved, of course), but blew us off. :mad:

    On the other hand, a student of mine won an award which recipients are to share with a teacher of their choosing who was especially inspirational. She picked me, and made a nice speech about me when she got the award! :)
