Parent Appreciation Idea!

Hey friends!
We have company! Please welcome my blog bud April from A Modern Teacher. If you're looking for me, I'll be at Starbucks preparing for my room parent gifts...but I'll be back tomorrow :)    

First of all, let me pinch myself.  This is my first guest blog and I'm here...where it's so sunny!!? I couldn't be happier!  I am honored to write a guest post for my sweet funny blogger friend Denise. Over the years, I have been blessed to have parent volunteers in my classroom.  And every year, at the end of the year, I want to get my room parent (or other volunteers) a little appreciation gift.  But honestly, rarely do I find creative gifts for parent volunteers.  Of course, it got me thinking...and with a little help from pinterest....here are:
Parent Volunteer Gifts Using Starbucks Gift Cards
I mean who doesn't love Starbucks???  Even if you don't like coffee, you can get tea or a little something to eat.  Yummo. (I prefer the caffeine...sometimes double shots..yikes)
Attach these little sayings and share your appreciation.  For each cup, fill with brown paper, put the gift card inside the cup and add the tag you can find for FREE if you click HERE or on the image.  I printed mine on plain white cardstock.  Another idea is to fill all cups with the different items and then have each gift card equal... say $5 and put it in a to-go container. You have been a LIFESAVER!  Thanks for all your help. Your help ‘mint’ so much!  Thank you! Your help was ‘tearrific’! Thanks for all the EXTRA help this year!
Click on the image to download them for free. What do you think?  Something you could use?  I hope so! Thanks again Denise for inviting me!  Now, if only I could get to Florida...sand between my toes, waves crashing....ah WAKE UP :)

  7. I am the Russian teacher

    Hello , my dear abroad colleagues, I am the ordinary Russian teacher. I have been working at school for 20 years. I teach kids. I like my work, have much free time because my holiday vacations have 56 calendar days, and I am going to be a pensioner in 5 years.

    My Salary is not big – $500a month only. I cannot go to America (I have not enough money). Even If I will go there - it will be necessary to come back through Alaska by foot (it is a joke, you see).

  17. Hi April!

    These are adorable!!! I bought those tags from Erin Bradley a few weeks ago because I thought they were so cute! Where did you get the other graphics from though? Also, did you get the cups at Starbucks or can you buy them at a store? I love these and am excited to use them!
