The school year is rapidly approaching the end. For some lucky kids, summer is in full swing already.
Many teachers still have a few days of clean up and winding down before their school year is officially over. Don't let the year slip away without thanking those who make an impact on your child's life everyday during the school year.
Here is an easy and inexpensive way to thank the special people in your kids life:
Take a digital photo of your child. Print multiple copies and then paste them to a sheet of construction paper. Depending on the age of your child, have your son or daughter help with the gluing.
Next instruct your child to write something nice to each person or draw a picture that represents what this person means to them. For example your child can write 'my bus driver, Mr Hansen gets me to school safely everyday, thank you Mr Hansen!'
They can draw a nice picture next to their picture.
This little project should not take too long and it will teach your children to appreciate what people do for a living and how many people care about them on a daily basis!
Here are some people to consider thanking:
The School Nurse
The Teacher's Aide
You don't need to spend a lot of money on an 'end of school year gift'. Thanking these people with something from the heart will surely put a smile on their face.
Happy Summer everyone!
