Teacher Appreciation Gift

We have teacher appreciation week at our school, I don't know maybe that is a national thing for all I know!  Anyway, I saw the cutest and simpliest idea!

We packaged up a little assortment of mint candy.

We put them in paper sacks.
(The PTO actually sent home 1 paper sack/child to place something in - so we stuck with that, we probaly could have found something cuter!)

We glued the cutest little note on the sacks.
I changed it from the original version.
(And added some clipart!)

The kids signed their names.  They will pass them out to their "main" teachers/para and then to the art teacher, PE teacher, music teacher, computer teacher, and the 2 librians!

Here is my version of the note:

Thanks for your commit-"mint" to help me learn.
Thanks for your encourage-"mint" to always do my best.
Thanks for your involve-"mint" in my life.
Thanks for your invest-"mint" of time and energy to make school a fun place to be.
Thanks for creating a great environ-"mint" for me to learn and grow.
Thanks for making each day an enjoy-"mint"!!!
You have really “mint” a lot to me this year! 

This was so easy - would it be tacky to do this year after year!! ha, ha!
