Teacher Appreciation
Make it Personal and Meaningful

Teachers appreciate all gestures that recognize their hard work and emotional investment, but they especially value personal expressions of thanks and recognition. This kit will provide ideas and small gifts to show you recognize their contributions to the school climate and culture and their commitment to the well-being of your students.

If you need more of the buttons, pens, coasters, or Kudos notepads, they are available at JostensRenaissance.com/store or contact your Jostens rep.

Teacher Appreciation Buttons (50)
There are many reasons why they teach, and many ways to express them. Give these out at a staff meeting or choose buttons especially for each teacher and distribute in their mailboxes.

Teacher Appreciation Selfie Signs (5)
Have students or teachers choose one of these prompts and write messages of authentic gratitude. Share them online and tag your school account so your parents can see them as well! Print more by downloading the PDF here.

Writing the Future Pens (25)
Every time a teacher picks up this pen, it’s a reminder of the sense of purpose educators share now as well as our investment in the leaders of tomorrow.
