Lunches for the teachers


Our fabulous little school made the best lunches for our teachers on the first day of school... and it was EASY. Everyone signed up via email to bring something. One family in individual servings of fruit, another family sent in little bags of chips, another sent in the dessert, and then several other families each brought in one sandwich each. Then, I filled a cute container with Izze fruit beverages. One talented mother made the CUTEST lunch bags. Once we had settled our little ones into their new classrooms, it took just a few minutes to fill the bags with the goodies for the teachers. I think they were pleased!! Feel free to use this idea for your school. I don't think any one person or family felt over-burdened and the end result made our teachers feel appreciated! At the same time, it was not "over the top" with fancy floral arrangements and a string quartet, which only add to the to-do list!
