Teachers work hard, y’all! And I think it’s obvious they don’t get the appreciation they deserve, so when Maegan of Simply Styled Home sent over this staff appreciation party she did for her daughter’s school, we just knew we had to share it! I love that there was a fun new detail each day of the week! I think my favorite detail are the comic-like posters she created to hang in the school hallways. Such a fun touch that I’m sure the kids got a kick out of as well! Read on as Maegan shares more of the superhero details!
“A week and a half before Superhero Staff Appreciation Week, all of the teachers and staff received this invitation in their mailbox, along with a lunch preferences questionnaire and drink order form (more about those down below).
Superhero posters were our main decoration this year. John Wolfe, a local photographer and fellow parent, took pictures of everyone decked out in a customized superhero cape and mask from Kid Kapers. I have been eyeing those capes for months and was thrilled that she had time to make a Superman style cape with an “M” for Mann Elementary. It couldn’t have been more perfect. Did you know you could have capes customized? How fun is that?! I love Etsy.
Originally I had planned on using the pictures John took as is, but then I got the great idea (if I do say so myself) to turn them into comic book style posters with advice from each staff member to students. John transformed each photo into a comic book style poster which I used to decorate the hallways, and an 8×10 photo for the classroom doors.
The teachers and staff also took home a Superhero Award at the end of the week. They are after all, the most amazing superheros I know.” – Maegan, Simply Styled Home
I hope you enjoyed these ideas as much as we did! What has your school done to show appreciation towards it’s teachers? We’d love to hear!
