Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week is coming!

Please help shower our hard-working KES teachers with fun gifts during Teacher Appreciation Week (TAW), May 1-5, 2017, by contributing to the TAW raffle!

The raffle is a great way for you to show your collective appreciation for all the Kaechele teachers and staff.  Teachers will be able to put their raffle tickets in for the prizes they specifically wish to win!  Our goal is to have enough prizes/baskets for everyone (approximately 50 teachers/staff) to win something.

If you are creative or artistic, please consider putting together a themed gift basket or bag (“Spa Day”, Date Night”, etc.).  Or if you prefer, donate a gift card (e.g. Target, Starbucks, restaurants, movies) or an item (e.g. Fitbit, Keurig, cooler bag, jewelry, purse).  No item or donation is too big or too small – we welcome any gift!  Individual gift cards and items might be combined and all contributors will be credited.

Please place your donations in the bin on my front porch by Friday, April 7.  Please include your NAME and CELL NUMBER or EMAIL ADDRESS on the item.  Prizes will be displayed the week before TAW for teachers to place their tickets. (Email kaechelepta@gmail.com to request the address.)

Thank you for your help in making TAW great at KES!



Leading up to Teacher Appreciation Week, students will decorate a coyote for their teacher. One copy of the Coyote Coloring Sheet will be sent home with the students. If students want to decorate additional pages for their resource teachers, they can PRINT ADDITIONAL SHEETS HERE. Coyotes will be hung in the halls when teachers enter the school on Monday, May 1.


On Thursday, May 4 students will present their teachers with the completed paper titled “Thank You for being a Great Teacher!” Homeroom parents will send the link to this paper, or you may PRINT IT HERE.
