Back To School

Most Valley kids return to classes this month, and some parents think it's the most wonderful time of the year!  Just think of how quiet the house will be...how much work you'll actually be able to get done without someone yelling, "MOM!!"  Go ahead, take a deep breath.  Aaaaah--oh, wait, those poor teachers!  As the herds arrive en masse, we really need to let our favorite teachers know how much she/he is appreciated.  A sweet fun bouquet for the desk is a wonderful 'welcome back!' gift.  Succulents are still trending and are so easy to care for, with so many varieties! A fruit basket would be nice, too, especially if there was a bright shiny red apple on the top. Here are some ideas we can even deliver for you!

Here are a few great card messages for teachers and other school employees:

To a brand new teacher...funniest if he or she is a grade school teacher:
"Congratulations on making it into the 3rd Grade!"

To a long time teacher...
"Welcome back to another school year!  One day down, 179 more to go!!

Slight sarcasm for the teacher with a good sense of humor:
"I know you are really excited to be back to school.  I'm sure it was getting pretty boring at home.  You know, sleeping in and enjoying life and all that stuff..."

To express enthusiasm:
"May every teacher become a mentor, may every classmate become a friend, may every lesson teach and enrich.  Here's to the best school year ever!"

To cheer any teacher:
"It's the first day of school and you've already earned four A's....You're Astounding, Amazing, Awesome and Astonishing!"

And don't forget mom, she's held it all together with the kids bouncing off the walls for the past three months.  In fact, we've found the perfect card message to go with her Thank You flowers:
"If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers."
