When teachers return in August, each site is responsible for providing a full-day in service for teachers (lots of information to disseminate, so the day goes by quickly). We provide a catered lunch and have other prizes available throughout the day. Additionally, I’ve always given a welcome back gift. Last year, I purchased tumblers and used my Cricut to write everyone’s name in vinyl along with our school name and logo. They turned out great, in my humble opinion. This year, we don’t know what to do for a welcome back gift (I work alongside a principal who splits the cost of gifts/luncheons/staff meeting snacks with me). I was thinking rhinestone lanyards since we require all employees to wear their IDs (not every site within my district has this expectation). I could get lanyards that aren’t “blinged out” for the male employees. Thoughts? Other ideas? I’m open-minded!
