Default Treats for Teachers-- HELP ME, PLEASE!!!!

I know what i wanted to ask the all-knowing stamping goddesses...I recently accepted a new position with a new school and would like to make something for easch teacher, kinda like a "I'm here, and I am looking forward to getting to know you and work with you" kinda thing. I ordered some med. cello bags from SU, which should be here next week, but what can I PUT IN them???? There are 40 teachers/support staffers, so whatever I do, there will be alot of them!

I need some help here!
Jen

would the decorative pens fit in there. or you could put little candy bars or mints in there with stamping on it as a sweet treat.

As someone who works in a middle school (i'm not a teacher - but a school counselor), my vote is on office supplies and/or candy! Personally, my favorite gifts to give and receive are pens/paper/post-its/etc.

Hope this helps - and btw, I think you are so sweet to think of introducing yourself that way. I don't think I know of anyone who has ever done that at my school. You'll make such a first impression!!

My vote is for individualy wrapped pieces of candy. Something like - Starbusts, toffee, fruit snacks, things you can keep at your desk and get them on an emergency bases! I know most women die for chocolate but unless they can get to it right away it might melt.

Hello!

I am a school psychologist and am transferred to new schools each year. I always make something that I can incorporate my "welcome letter" into...some of the favorites are: hot chocolate packets, matchbook covers for the snack size m&m's, sucker covers, folders with pixie sticks, full size chocolate bar, tic tacs, gum that come in the cardboard package...all of them are pretty easy as I print off my intro letter on the actual packaging prior to stamping and cutting it out.

BUT...I think the favorite among the staff are the microwave popcorn packages. I take a full sheet of paper and print two of them out side by side on the page. Stamp the page with a school theme. Cut each page directly in half, score the 1/2 sheets in the middle, punch the top and tie a ribbon through it. They are very cute and everyone loves the popcorn! ( I may have one of my letters on the computer all formatted ---if you are interested --pm me!)

Personally, things can get expensive in a school. I have found that you are better NOT to do something big as they love it and seem to get used to it ie holidays, staff appreciation, etc!

As a teacher who has done the similar....do candy! The notepads and pens, etc are super cute, but that is something I save for my team b/c it can be spendy and time consuming. That way, if it is just for my team I only need to make 5!

Last year instead of a birthday party all my friends and I made magnets for each of the staff people at the 2 elementary schools that the kids in our area go to as a welcome back to school gift. We used the tiles from Home Depot that come in the sheets and stamped a dragonfly on them with stazon
We put them in the plastic trading card sleeves with a buisness card that said they were from the non-profit community center that we go to and help out at.
They all loved them - I think because no one starts out the year giving.

If you do the cellaphane bags you could stamp a bookmark and put pieces of candy in there. I really like Kims idea with the popcorn.

Default Thank you, everyone!

TOO CUTE ideas! I love them all, but I think I am gonna go with the popcorn. It is something different, and it kinda describes my personality... poppy & energetic! Plus, the bags are cheap, and the sleeves will be a breeze to do with stampin' wheels!

Thanks again for the ideas!

Jen

Great ideas, ladies! I'm thinking about back to school too. My parents are both in education and I always make stuff for them to welcome new teachers, etc.

Popcorn - Costco - 24 bags for $7 - thanks newinker for that tip!
