    Today the parents presented me with 3 large tubs of supplies for next year, a generous gift card for my personal use, and came in and disinfected all my toys, manipulatives and cubbies. They washed all the chairs, wiped down the cupboards, took down the bulletin boards and did anything else I could think of. Another group prepared my welcome folders for next year, collated and stapled 3 different types of journals, sharpened pencils, and reorganized my office and craft supplies.

    I am in heaven! They saved me a LOT of work so I can focus on planning and creating new activities this summer. I had everything organized and ready, and 20 of them helped, including one with a 6 day old baby! This was the best day ever, and the best end to a school year! To make things even better, 8 of these families will be in my class next year. Woo!

    What a wonderful summer gift to give a teacher! I think this needs to be shared with more parents :)
