The end of the school year is here. It also marks the end of my daughter’s journey through elementary school. I feel like I should be a bit sadder about it, but I believe the step up to junior high is going to be a good one for her. I am astonished, though, how quickly those six years went by; and I know in another blink she’ll be at the end of high school.
We’ve been fortunate to have amazing teachers again this year. Both kids thrived with the enthusiasm and genuine care their teachers displayed. I give so much credit to the educators who wear a hundred hats on any given day, and to those who remarkably understand how to motivate 35 very different children.
Most teachers already have a plethora of “Worlds Greatest Teacher” thank you gifts. So, this year choose a heart-felt (eco-friendly) gift to show your appreciation for an incredible school year. For those bus drivers, aides, therapists, and teachers who made your child’s school year a safe and exciting journey, here are a few ideas.
- All-purpose Recycled T-shirt bag
- Fabulous Blissful Botanica organic Coffee Soap (add our burlap coffee bag for instant packaging & you’re still under $10!)
- Sunbeam’s Lemongrass & Ginger aromatherapy candle
