Preciate You!


We wanted to reach out to the schools on a deeper level. Each year we donate hundreds of back packs, shoes and socks. We also clean, paint and do whatever we can to enhance the properties for the teachers and students.

This coming weekend we will be blitzing the schools in our community. Expressing thanks to all the people who work in our school system. It's easy, simple and impacting.

Outreach 1. Fairborn Elementary
Our ladies Monday night study (130 ladies) have stepped up to help throw a teacher appreciation day this coming Friday. We will be serving Boston Stoker Coffee, and special cup cakes made by Cake, Hope, and Love at their in-service coffee break. We will be presenting gifts to some key teachers who have done an outstanding job this year. (list from the principal) As the teachers leave, each teacher will receive a small gift, just to say thanks.


Outreach 2. Vineyard KIDZ
This weekend every child in VKIDZ (over 500 kids) will be making their teacher a special card. Every kid will then take the card and a cool bag home. Every parent is encouraged to write a personal note to their child's teacher and fill a small bag with a few items to show their appreciation.





here are our instructions:

This week of November 1-5, 2010 we'd like you to encourage your childrens' teachers by participating in our Teacher Appreciation Outreach.

Often teachers are overworked, stressed, and under thanked. Just imagine teachers all over the area being encouraged the same week. We think it will make a huge impact!

Here's the plan:

1. We are asking you to write personal notes of thanks to their teachers.

2. Place your note and your child's card in the bag provided along with our Vineyard connect card.

3. Fill the bag with goodies. (See suggested list below. Keep in mind this is just for the teacher--not their class.)

This week please send filled bag to school with your children.

  • 1 Pack of Thank You Cards.
  • Granola/energy bars.
  • Breath mints.
  • A bar of chocolate (dark or milk).
  • Small bottle of hand sanitizer.
  • Small packet of tissues.
  • Chap-Stick.
  • Other fun creative items. 

Outreach 3. Vineyard Church Participants

We also wanted to spread the love through-out our community. So we will have hundreds of pre-filled thank you bags available after each service. Some people may have kids, but not have kids in VKIDZ, or may not have access to a school in their area, but would like to say thanks to a community worker. So we are opening up the outreach just a bit.

here are our instructions:


 

This week of November 1-5, 2010 we'd like you to encourage school workers / community workers by participating in our Appreciation Outreach.

Often school / community workers are overworked, stressed, and under thanked. Just imagine people all over the area being encouraged the same week. We think it will make a huge impact!

Here's the plan:

1. We are asking you to write personal notes of thanks to teachers, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, school secretaries, community workers etc.

2. Fill the bag with goodies. (See suggested list below. Keep in mind this is just for the teachers, etc.--not their class.)

3. This week please send filled bag to school with your children or personally drop off the bag to someone you want to show appreciation to in your community.

  • 1 Pack of Thank You Cards.
  • Granola/energy bars.
  • Breath mints.
  • A bar of chocolate (dark or milk).
  • Small bottle of hand sanitizer.
  • Chap-Stick.
  • Other fun creative items.  

One friend of mine, who is working with many schools in our area, will be hosting a meeting on Wednesday with the areas school superintendents. He will be offering a thank you to those attending, and passing on our desire to support the teachers in our community. He will also be showing, then giving the thank you bags to all who are attending.

It's gonna be a fun week.
