There are only a few school days left…
Have you bought your child’s teacher a gift? Or, even more importantly, has YOUR CHILD had a way to show his appreciation for his teacher this holiday season?
As we parents know, holidays often mean we need to give gifts. Our lists can get long — and all the buying adds up!
In Jackson’s short life, I have already spent a small fortune in Starbucks gift cards.
This year, I wanted to do something different AND I wanted get Jackson involved in giving back to his teacher.
Jackson has an incredible, caring teacher this year, and I know he wants to let her know how much he appreciates her. (When his teacher was away for three days due to a conference, Jackson missed her so much. At the end of the week he sighed to me, “Boy, am I glad that Madame Adams became a teacher!”)
While chatting with his teacher after school one day about kids and germs – and how much she loathes getting sick – I had the idea of giving her the gift of a clean classroom this year.
So, I suggested to Jackson that we go in and clean her classroom for a special Christmas gift.
Well, that was just about as perfect timing as there could be! I offered to post about my cleaning up the classroom gift idea and ta da — we have a FANTASTIC and FUN giveaway with Clorox.
Give the Gift of CLEAN…
If you are looking for a way to give back to your teacher this year – AND a way to reduce the germs in your child’s classroom – consider giving your teacher the gift of a clean classroom.
Your kids can arrange a time to go in after class and clean their classrooms. You probably want to go supervise and help out for quality control and so they don’t create trouble for their teacher.
Or, you could simply buy a canister of disinfecting wipes, or bundle up an assortment for a fun gift basket, and give it to your teacher with a note of appreciation.
Did you know that more than half of teachers buy their own cleaning supplies?
Donating disinfecting wipes to your classroom is an important way to support your teacher any time of the year!
Jackson, and his friend (along with his friend’s big brother) who joined in the gift giving, had a ton of fun cleaning the classroom. While I am sure their methods wouldn’t pass inspection, the good intentions were definitely there.
Clean up the Classroom with Clorox is a great website with helpful ideas for parents, teachers and kids to help create a cleaner classroom. Teachers can even sign up to receive a free Clean Up the Classroom kit with tips and tricks to outsmart germs everyday.
