April Appreciation: Donut Fret Friday

Every month on the last Friday, we have a little tradition called "Donut Fret Friday".  It is a little play on words that I like to use to celebrate the end of a great month.  With the stress of student achievement, teachers must know that we appreciate them.  Keeping in mind with the phrase, "If you don't feed the teachers, they'll eat the children", I like to provide a great breakfast for them each month to say thank you.

The message is simple.
  • Thank you for your hard work this month. 
  • Thank you for all that you do for kids.
  • Don't fret about all the things going on right now.  It'll all work out in the end.

Donut Fret Friday takes one thing of their plate for the day, making their own breakfast.  They feel appreciated and the end their week and their month on a positive.  Try it and see if you agree.  Donut Fret Friday builds culture.
