Teacher Appreciation Week Ideas
Tue, May 5 5:08pm

La Paz Parents, this week is Teacher & Staff Appreciation week for SVUSD.  Our teachers have been working so hard to support all of our students during this unprecedented time with distance learning!!! Mrs. Walker shared a few ways to show our thanks to teachers: A few simple ideas that students can do include:  sending teachers individual messages via email and google classroom, planning a zoom group message with some friends, making a card and showing it during zoom classes, or perhaps creating a video or flipgrid and sharing it with the teacher(s).


Another way to give thanks is with a E-giftcard.  You can send e-giftcards through the Benefit Mobile App if you have your teachers email address in any amount & to many different retailers/restaurants/etc.  Follow the instructions below. Make sure & mark La Paz as your beneficiary for BENEFIT & the school will also get $$ back for school programs with each e-giftcard purchase.


Thank you, La Paz Intermediate STPO
