How to Use Teacher Appreciation Cards for Teachers and School Staff
How do I send teacher appreciation cards to a large staff?
If you are a school administrator, superintendent, principal, or lead the parent/teacher association, there are often times when you would love to reach out to the people who mean the most to your children’s education: teachers, academic support staff, bus drivers, coaches, administrative staff, counselors and everyone who plays a vital role in their wellbeing.
The two biggest challenges with sending cards to a large staff are signing the cards and getting them distributed or mailed. With Hallmark’s handwriting fonts, we can help sign your cards with your personal message. Then we can address, and if needed, mail the teacher appreciation and staff support cards for you.
How do I make sure all of my school district’s staff feels appreciated during Teacher Appreciation Week?
If you are a school superintendent, university leader, or education administrator, Hallmark’s business greeting cards can help you buy in bulk for your entire school staff. We recommend you utilize a specific teacher appreciation card for educators, and then select an employee appreciation card that emphasizes, “You Make a Difference,” for support staff, counselors, and all non-teaching staff. Employees who focus on safety and security will appreciate that reinforces the importance of what they do with a rewarding safety message. Don’t forget your school nurses! We have cards just for them too.
When are other times I can send teacher appreciation cards besides Teacher Appreciation Week?
Back to School – The beginning of a new school year is a perfect time to say “thank you” to teachers and all staff to kick off the new year on the right foot.
National Coaches Day – One day after World Teachers’ Day is National Coaches Day. The proclamation states, “Coaches are highly qualified teachers—in highly specialized fields. But more than that, they are friends and counselors who help instill in their players, important attitudes that will serve them all their lives."
Educational Support Professionals Day– Celebrated as part of American Education Week the first full week before Thanksgiving, it’s a great time to give gratitude to the support staff who are essential to your school family. Hallmark’s employee appreciation cards are perfect for letting these workers know just how much their support makes a difference to you, your school district, and your students. Support professions can include librarians, custodians, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, paraprofessionals, front office staff, security guards, playground safety supervisors, building maintenance teams, school nurses, computer tech support, and volunteers.
Thanksgiving– This holiday is made for teacher appreciation cards.
International Day of Recognition – Held on January 24 and dedicated to education in celebration of the role of education in bringing global peace and sustainable development.
Valentine’s Day – A Valentine’s appreciation card is unexpected, and it is a perfect time to send thank you notes to teachers and essential staff to let them know how much you love having them on your team.
Other any day occasions to celebrate and honor your staff are birthdays, work anniversaries, new baby and, of course, retirements. Our assorted card packs are perfect so you have the right card on hand for all of these occasions.
