Teacher Gifts They’ll Love and End of the Year Fun

girls-462072_960_720Hey Greece, did you catch the announcement from GCS about the revision to the calendar? We’ve got only a few more weeks in the school year, and we know your kids are probably getting antsy waiting for these final days to be over- maybe you are too!!  Here’s some great ideas for teacher gifts and end of the year fun.

The Dates

K-8: last full day is  Monday, June 20th
High School: dates are UNCHANGED. Last day of classes  will be Friday, June 10th, with exams beginning after.

Teacher Appreciation

Now’s the time to start thinking about how you can show your child’s teacher some love after a long year! Teacher appreciate gifts aren’t a necessity, but they are certainly well deserved!

DIY Gifts

Teacher Picks


Not a DIY person?  We get it.  Take a look at some of these gifts that were actually suggested by teachers from SheKnows.com   We love the walking robot pencil sharpener, personalized flower pot and the charitable donation certificate.  There’s 20 altogether so you’re sure to find one that floats your boat. Many times, teachers spend their own money trying to create an encouraging environment.  It really is okay to give a gift for the classroom!

While you’re at it, don’t forget to thank your child’s bus driver too!  We had to go back to Pinterest yet again. We love the M and M (miles and miles idea) and the stop and say thank you gifts.

Start a Countdown

Kids feeling weary at the end of the year? Start building some summer excitement with a countdown!! We love this paper chain, but you can be as creative as you want. Kids will love getting to rip off links, and start watching as the number of days left gets lower and lower!!


ABC Memories

From A to Z, record a phrase, memory, and/or piece of wisdom gained throughout the school year.  Ask friends and family to help.

Love the district you’re in, but need to make a move?  We can help.  Contact us today to start your summer adventure!
