Friday Appreciation Cart

I was thinking today about what kinds of things I could do to boost the morale of the teachers in my building. I believe that it would be a good idea to get a rolling cart and decorate it and place various items on it for teachers to choose. I could roll the cart around every Friday and let the teachers choose something. It could have things like:

Boxes of Kleenex
POST-IT Notes
Sodas/Bottles of Water
Chocolate Bars
Baby Wipes
Markers
Pens
Highlighters
Lotion
Herbal Tea Packets
Stationary
Granola Bars

It might be possible to get parents to donate things for the cart too. The small token of appreciation is a nice gesture, but my prediction is that teachers will be much more touched by the fact that you have taken the time to walk around the entire building to say thanks in person to each teacher. A note with words of praise and appreciation placed in the teacher's box are fine, but you still need to make sure that you are providing them with face-to-face praise as well.
