AHH! How can school be ending already??! I’m sure your schedule of celebrations and special events is just as crazy as mine. And maybe you also wonder if you should gift your teacher, or just how to show appreciation at the end of the school year. I asked Tuscan’s Team Kindergarten what the norm was ’round these parts and here’s what they said!
About 60-75% of Kindergarten families gift their teachers at the end of the year. This includes physical presents and crafts/cards made by students.
Memorable gifts include gift cards and “a bag of my favorite things.”
“Many teachers don’t work in the summer and aren’t receiving an income, so having gift cards for incidentals is nice.”
And since I know our teachers also love to #shoplocal, here’s our General Store Gift Guide for End of Year Teacher Gifts!
