Thank You Note to Teacher

Teacher Appreciation Week is happening May 4th-8th! BCEF would like to honor the teachers in our school system by reminding students to say Thank You to their teachers. Here's a Thank you note to get you started. If you share your letter on social media use the hashtag #BCEFteacherappreciation2020. Please share this post and flood Facebook with encouragement and appreciation for our teachers!! #BradfordStrong

This thank you note to teacher is a cute way for your child to tell exactly what they like about their teacher! A fill in the blank printable makes it easy! Thanking a teacher for their hard work doesn't need to be hard or expensive.
