We all know how hard our teachers and school staff work, and one week of showing our appreciation is NOT enough! This year, I am a room parent for Kolton’s 4th grade class and I am determined to show his teacher (and all of the staff) how much they are respected and appreciated!

Picnic-Themed Lunch

Myself and the other fourth grade room parents put together a super fun lunch in the Teacher’s break room for them to enjoy throughout the day and during their weekly meeting. After giving it some thought, we decided to go with a picnic theme, and it turned out so great that I had to share!

For sandwiches, we chose Costco for their croissant deli meat sandwiches and Safeway for their vegetarian options. We did a lot of research and found these to be the best deal since we were hosting 60 people.

In addition to sandwiches, we bought a variety of chips, homemade potato salad, delicious cookies from Crumbl Cookies along with a basket of apples.

For beverages, we brought mini water bottles, homemade lemonade and Waterloo flavored sparkling waters.

I was very proud of the signs I made with the help of my Cricut Maker 3, Cricut permanent vinyl and Cricut cardstock. The canvases and poster board and stands were from Dollar Tree. I have included the links below.
