Did you know that this week is National Teacher week?
Teachers in St. Charles, St. Louis and in communities across the nation will be in the spotlight on National Teacher Day, as students, parents, school administrators and the general public learns how teachers are making great strides to improve our Public Schools for every student.
Few other professionals touch as many people as teachers do.
National Teacher Day is a good time to show appreciation on the contributions educators make to our community every day. Teachers are role models. Teachers spend more time with our kids than most parents do. As a community, we need to be more grateful and show more appreciation. Ask your teachers how YOU can help.
Sending a card or gift of appreciation is an opportunity for all of us to reach out. A heartfelt, handwritten thank you note goes a long way to sharing the love. Is your child’s teacher doing an A++ job? Send appreciation cards to teachers who have inspired you’re children. Send a Starbucks, a Target or a Home Depot Gift Card. It’s the perfect way to let them know they are appreciated.
Make it even more meaningful by including something specific the teacher has said or done that has made a difference to your child, like offering extra guidance in math, helping your child make friends on the playground, or teaching a science or art module that sparked your child’s interest and passion.
Another simple and more meaningful idea is to have your child design their own card & write a note or poem about why he or she appreciates their teacher. You’re child can design a special card or decorate his or her poem with pictures that show what their teacher has taught them.
If you want to send the SUPER HERO teacher in your life a real card, in a real envelope from you or your child or both at NO COST, please visit: www.sendoutcards.com/loryfabian.
TEACHERS MATTER!…PLEASE MAKE TIME TO THANK THE TEACHERS IN YOUR SCHOOL THIS WEEK.
Send a card of Gratitude to your favorite nurse? Really? How many of you have ever sent a card or even thought of sending a card to a nurse? I know (and love) a lot of nurses. My Aunt Ruth in Cleveland was a loyal and hardworking nurse for years. Aunt Ruth had a calling to serve. I have several dear friends who are nurses, Linda, Tina & Susie. Nurses will have a special place in Heaven.
Nurses? Hmmmmmm..What about all of the nurses over the years that took my numerous phone calls and questions? I am almost embarrassed that sending a thank you card never crossed my mind. Just last year, a school nurse at Sylvania High School in Ohio detected a tumor in my cousin’s daughter brain doing a routine eye exam that may have not been found until it was too late. Right Ashlee? Thank You School nurses around the world!
According to Wikipedia, International Nurses’ week is celebrated around the world early May of each year, to mark contributions nurses make to society.
The International Council of Nurses has celebrated this day since 1965. Not until January 1974, did 12 May was chosen to celebrate the day as it is the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, who is widely considered the founder of modern nursing. Each year, ICN prepares and distributes the International Nurses’ Day Kit. The kit contains educational and public information materials, for use by nurses everywhere.
As of 1998, May 8 is designated as annual National Student Nurses’ Day.
As of 2003, the Wednesday within National Nurses Week, between 6 and 12 May, is National School Nurse Day.
It’s never too late to send a card of gratitude…go to www.sendoutcards.com/loryfabian and send every nurse you know a card of Gratitude and Appreciation today!
