June is the time of year where some teachers get to finally graduate from your school as well. One of the unique and truly appreciated mementos that you are able to create can come from letters or notes collected from present students. Here is an example of a note sent to home room teachers at Waterloo Collegiate:
There are a number of teachers retiring this year. We will be making memory packages for these teachers; these packages will include pictures and letters from their past or present students and fellow teachers. These packages will be presented at the final awards assembly in June. If you, or any student in your class, would like to write a letter for any one of these teachers or have pictures, please leave them with student council. Please encourage your class to contribute.
Plaques are nice, but notes of heart-felt appreciation last much longer.
