Teacher Appreciation Week

PTA Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week and #ThankATeacher with us!

The 2017 theme was “Teachers Deliver.” And they do! Teachers deliver so much to our students—inspiration, motivation and, ultimately, their futures.

Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day, and their work and impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom. Join us during PTA Teacher Appreciation Week to #ThankATeacher for all that they deliver to our nation’s children.


How You Can #ThankATeacher

Take the time to show your appreciation this week and ALL weeks!

  • Have your child sign and present our ready-made thank-you cards to their teachers and school related professionals!
  • Have your school principal, PTA/PTSA President or student sign and present appreciation certificates to the teachers and school related professionals in your life!
  • Host a teacher and school related professional breakfast or lunch!

About Teacher Appreciation Week

Since 1984, National PTA has designated one week in May as a special time to honor the men and women who lend their passion and skills to educating our children.

PTA events at the national, state and local levels celebrate the outstanding contributions teachers make. We are also proud to recognize teachers and administrators with awards and grants.

National PTA also serves on the selection committees for the National Teacher of the Year Program.

NYS PTA also serves on the selection committee for the NYS Teacher of the Year Committee.
