Just in time for Halloween, the M&M’s are appealing to our childhood memories and teaming up with the Addams Family. Check out the kooky commercial. Then go have some fun making your own M&M character!
Tuesday, May 3, 2011 is Teacher Appreciation Day, but many schools now make a week of it.
Each day of the week has a theme.
Monday you are supposed to send in a piece of fruit to the teacher to give her a healthy start to her week.
Tuesday the kids write notes to their teachers to let them know how loved they are.
Wednesday is for flowers. Children are encouraged to be creative – bring a flower, color a flower, make one out of tissue paper – whatever they like.
Thursday the students are asked to bring their best manners and best behavior. To me, that would be the ultimate gesture of appreciation.
Friday is treat day. The students are encouraged to bring or make a small treat for their teacher. This year I think I will get each teacher a gift card to Starbucks or Panera Bread.
On Thursday the PTA will have a luncheon for the teachers. I will take in my favorite meatball recipe (5lbs meatballs, Heinz chili sauce and grape jelly in the crock pot – it is soooo yummy) and other parents will bring in their favorites, too.
Does your school celebrate Teacher Appreciation Day or Week? How do they tell the teachers that they are truly appreciated?

Happy Labor Day!
We took this photo this summer while we were at Hilton Head, SC. I just love the look of the weathered flag flying free over the water and we couldn’t have asked the bird to do a better job posing for us.
This Staples commercial from a few years back is THE. BEST. EVER! With school starting in just over a week for my kids, I just can’t get the tune out of my head – and that is a good thing.
We had 19″ of snow fall within the last 48 hours – can you say snOMG??? Anyone care to join me on the patio for a tall fruity drink?
