Teacher’s Day is Tuesday, May 8 and most schools take the opportunity to celebrate teachers that entire week. I think that’s very appropriate…they deserve that and so much more! Teachers work very hard and definitely deserve recognition for all their efforts.

Teachers provide so much more than just learning. They offer motivation, inspiration and encourage our children to be their very best. Teacher appreciation week offers us the opportunity to say “Thank You” to all the exceptional teachers who do so much for our children day after day.

Don’t forget that your child can help their favorite teacher win BIG! The folks at Crayola want to reward some very special teachers by giving them BIG Publix gift cards. They are offering up one $250 Publix gift card and nine $100 Publix gift cards and you all get to choose who YOU think should win! In addition, the ten children who nominate the winning teachers also get a super prize package from Crayola.

There are only a few more days to get those entries in. Head over and view ALL THE ENTRY DETAILS HERE. I am just tickled pink with what has come in so far. So many cute drawings, pictures and even a few videos–it’s been absolutely amazing to read what an impact these teacher have made in the lives of so many. I can’t wait to find out who wins!

Remember when you are looking for a gift to for teacher appreciation week, you’ll find tons of great Crayola products at your local Publix. Pick up a couple of items to help them restock their classrooms. You can grab them when you do your weekly shopping…you don’t even have to make a special trip to grab a gift.
