Teacher Appreciation

It's Teacher Appreciation Week at our school.  As the room parent for my daughter's 4th grade class, I had to come up with some kind of 'mailbox' for the kids to put their notes/cards to the teacher in.  I was lucky to have everything I needed at home, and I hope the basket is something she can re-use.

 I had the basket on hand, and the sign was a metal piece that I spray painted with chalk
paint and drilled holes in the corners to attach with the ribbon.

I also had the wood crate on hand and added these petunias that she can plant later.
Just one more duty as room parent...end of the year class party! 
Who's ready for summer?

I'm linking to the following parties:


  1. She's sure to love
    it, Petie! I didn't
    know that chalkboard
    paint came as a
    spray--handy : )!!
    Yes, feels like the
    countdown is here!

  2. Love that basket and my maiden name is Powell.

  3. That is a great teacher gift! As a former teacher I have given away TONS of coffee mugs that I got! I appreciate the thought, but I don't even drink coffee!!! A thoughtful useful gift is so appreciated! You are a great room mom!

  4. I'm a former teacher, too, and I would have loved to receive such a great gift.

  5. Beautiful gifts! Very thoughtful of you:)
