Teacher Appreciation Week
We wanted to acknowledge and honor the teachers at our partnering schools during Teacher Appreciation Week, so as a 2015-2016 year-end surprise, we brought a Candy Bar to each school for teachers to come by and fill a bag with their favorite sweet treats.
We did our best to encourage these difference-makers with cheesy (but clever) sayings that went along with each type of candy. We hoped that reading, "You are making a BEARY big difference" would bring a smile to their face as they grabbed a scoop of Gummi Bears.
We could never do enough to sufficiently thank our teachers, but we hope this small gesture reminded them of just how important and appreciated they really are!
