This was a fun day!
I love coffee and most teachers really love it too!
There is a place in town called Executive Perks who have all kinds of carts that you can rent for 2 hours. We chose the espresso cart with its own barista!
They set up shop and spoil the teachers with lattes.
We budget in our PTO a coffee cart once a year and since we hadn't used it yet, we used it for the last day of Teacher Appreciation Week. The cost for 2 hours is $275 but that didn't come out of my budget.
We are also very lucky to have a mom in our school who handles donations for Panera. She hooked us up with bagels and spread for all 60 teachers and staff free of charge!
THANK YOU, PANERA!
I had Sarah, president of the PTO and Mr. Winger, Hopkins principal, come and give a little THANK YOU to the teachers as well before school started.
We handed out pencils and grippers to all the teachers to use in their classes.
We had the pencils in our storage closet so they were free to me and I made really good use of that cellophane!
In the end, I only spent $313 out of $400 and I feel it was a nice week for the teachers- they really seemed to love it and are still talking about how spoiled they felt all week!
SO thankful for such a great group of staff at Hopkins Elementary!
P.S. here is the link to the sign at the top of the post and its FREE! - its meant to be a card where you can attach a gift card to Starbucks or any other coffee joint for your teacher! Super cute!
