Parent Appreciation Week - #sosmagic


I know Parent Appreciation Day/Week/Month isn't really a thing, but maybe it should be.

One of my Scholars' parents has generously blessed me with a Teacher Appreciation gift. It feels good to be thought of, considered and appreciated, and I am very grateful. 

As I composed my morning announcements email, I couldn't help thinking about how much parents have had to endure this school year. Today, I decided it would be a great day to thank my Scholars' parents for all they do to support me and to help me grow their kiddos.

I'm not sure how many parents actually read my daily emails, and honestly, it really doesn't matter. I'm going to write a note of appreciation in announcements all week. As teachers are being appreciated this week, 11 Scholars' parents will be as well.

I’m joining an open community of writers over at Sharing Our Stories: Magic in a Blog. If you write (or want to write) just for the magic of it, consider this your invitation to join us. #sosmagic


  1. What a wonderful idea from a wonderful person! And I am glad to see you in the SOS community! :)

  2. So true! It has been a challenging year for parents as well. What a wonderful thing to do!

  3. Those who do read the daily announcements will certainly appreciate your recognition. Who knows, the one who read may mention it to the non-reading parents and they will start reading your announcements.
    Welcome to SOS!

  4. What a lovely slice! The kindness we put into the world matters. I'm glad you are writing along with us.
    Shine on,

  5. Such a kind, thoughtful idea! I know you have parents to whom that will mean so much!
