Last year the Voxer group of principals that I talk to daily went back and forth on a “12 days” of Christmas idea as a way to give a lil’something to each staff member. None of the ideas were very big, or cost a lot of money, they were all just little things/ways to show how much we appreciate and celebrate how awesome they are.
This year I’ve added them to a Smore, and have added a lil’rhyme to feel even more holly jolly.
We’re counting down to Christmas break, but in a FUN way…(we all know I am not fan of the countdown!!)
Here is where we are so far…(if you’re a Wrangler, stop reading here! Don’t ruin your surprises!!)
What we have left:
– wear workout gear
– a Christmas card from us ( I designed in PPT and then used the “Santa hat” app to add hates to one of super cute pics!)
– a gift card lottery (5 $10 gift cards for local places)
– a special Wrangler giftie ( Can’t say b/c you know they didn’t stop reading when I asked them too!;))
– bagel breakfast
– another jean day
Hopefully, they understand that while the monetary amount of these days isn’t much, our appreciate and admiration for being in the trenches is EXTREMELY high. We have an amazing staff and worthy of much more! They empower and inspire our students daily, and its easy to forget in the hustle bustle of this holiday season that they too need a smile and a motivational boost!
