So here's the story. At the beginning of the school year I must have been feeling a little ambitious because I signed up to help the PTO. I know, crazy right? So for the past 8 months I have been in charge of coordinating staff treats every-other Wednesday. Usually I forget to call someone to take something in so I usually end up scrounging something up Wednesday afternoon. Poor staff. I also helped out with the Holiday Shop in December. One thing I did not sign up for (well, I did but I had no idea what I was getting myself in for and I have no recollection of sharing my lovely name with the PTO president) was Teacher Appreciation Week.
A few weeks ago I get a phone call from the PTO informing me that TAW (Teacher Appreciation Week) is coming up fast and since I signed up to co-chair and no one else signed up with me I had better get busy. At first I was baffled and I really wanted to do this.
I had no idea that this week even existed let alone was I prepared to plan it myself. However, the past PTO Pres. agreed to help me out and gave me the low down. So, I have been just a little overwhelmed with the upcoming TAW and in order to solve my overwhelmedness, I started searching the blogs. I have just discovered Skip to my Lou. I know I am a little late but she is now one of my new favorite bloggers. She has an entire section dedicated to TAW!!!!! Who would have thought? I have also wanted to try my hand at those nifty little key fobs. I live in a small community and there are only about 40 teachers and staff at the elementary so I didn't think it would be too hard to whip up a few key fobs as a fun little gift. I found most of my supplies on MamaSheCrazy and can't wait to find some incredible fabric to spice them up. I will be using the incredible easy to understand tutorial found here. I may be getting in over my head but hey, what's new with that? If anyone else has some suggestions for TAW give me a little shout out. I can use all the help I can get.
