Teachers Are Superheroes!

03, May 2016 8:31 AM


It's Teacher Appreciation Week and we're throwing a virtual party to say thank you for all that you do for students. By taking the time to teach nutrition in your classroom, you are empowering students with knowledge they need to make healthy choices for the rest of their lives. That's quite a superpower!

Since the school year is coming to a close and the celebrations are just beginning, healthy classroom party resources are our gift to you. 

Healthy Classroom Parties 

Healthy Party Printable Includes ideas for using food picture cards and vocabulary words in each Dairy Council of CA lesson.

Focus on the fun! Year-round tips and recommendations for elevating the health of classroom snacks and celebrations, as well as ideas for taking the focus off of food altogether. 

Five Food Group Fairs Four different party ideas to encourage students to try new food group foods. Each theme includes all five food groups.

Party Pins Peruse beautiful and festive ideas for fun snacks and engaging classroom activities on our Pinterest board.

Action Items Non-food rewards and ideas from Action for Healthy Kids to get students moving and keep them motivated.

#ThankATeacher Dollars, Discounts + Deals

No Teacher Appreciation Week post would be complete without mentioning some of the freebies and specials available to teachers this week and beyond. This list is by no means exhaustive. 

Be sure to let cashiers know when you're buying supplies for your school as you shop. Many retailers have the superpower of making spontaneous point of purchase discounts.

Classroom Cash PTA and Go Fund Me are teaming up this week to match classroom fundraising campaigns up to $100. 

Every Superhero Needs a Mascot! Pets In the Classroom offers multiple grants for adding a furry friend or a slithering student aid to your classroom.

Discounts + Deals From clothing to cars, Teach for America offers a list of 50 exclusive offers and discounts for teachers and National Education Association members.

This short list of resources and deals is a tiny token of our appreciation for your efforts all year long. If there's anything we can do to make your lives as teachers easier or healthier, please let us know in the comments. 

Thank you for all that you do!
