From May 2nd to May 6th, Germantown Municipal School District (GMSD) will be celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week. The district would like to invite everyone to help recognize the hard work of our teachers by sending a gratitude gram. This is a perfect opportunity to show gratitude and appreciation for the teachers who have gone above and beyond for their students during a challenging year.
To make it easy to send shoutouts to favorite GMSD staffers, the district has created four ready-made templates - The MVP, You Are Appreciated, Top Notch Customer Service, or Someone Wants to Celebrate You! You can select the staff member you want to recognize and type your positive feedback in the text box, being specific about what the staff member did that impressed you or made a difference. You can also choose to leave your name or remain anonymous. Once the gratitude gram is approved, the recipient will receive an email with your message along with an attached, easily printable graphic that they can share on a bulletin board or wall.
The district also wants to express its gratitude to its Parent-Teacher Organizations (PTOs) for their innovative and unique ways of celebrating teachers throughout the week. They have organized various events such as coffee carts, lunch deliveries, and providing snacks to show their appreciation.
