It's sad that so many of us parents are "moving on" from the things that we did for our children's elementary school teachers. What some parents do is just bring a plate of goodies, small school supplies, or a crock-pot of soup to the teachers' lounge. A paper crafter could easily put her spin on these ideas. Although it may not feel as personal to the gift giver, it is VERY personally appreciated by all the recipients.
I am a 7th grade math teacher and every year I get a few things from the kids. Most of the gifts come at Christmas time but this year we had that awful ice storm, missed 20+ days of school, etc so we never got anything. No biggie, but the kids keep telling me how excited they are to make/give me something in June. I think it is so sweet that they think highly enough of me to do that. There are 5 teachers on our team and most kids give us each something. I would love note cards though
