Celebrating Faculty, Staff, and Volunteers

Today we express our gratitude to the many people who work for and support our Catholic school.

We practice so many things in life, but how often do we practice gratitude? We receive so much joy when we tell others how much we appreciate them. Invite the students to name those in your school and parish who serve your school community. Decide on some random acts of kindness or little things you could do to say “thank you” to those people throughout the day.

Three Ways to Celebrate the Faculty/Staff/Volunteer-School Connection

  1. Host a breakfast or a traveling treat cart for faculty, staff, and volunteers.
  2. Host a fun staff verses students trivia contest. Include trivia facts about your school and parish.
  3. Gift faculty, staff, and volunteers with one of the personal or classroom-friendly resources listed below.


Product Highlight:
The Bible for Little Ones, Catholic Prayers and Practices, Our Family Devotions, Our Family Prays

This year, give faculty, staff, and volunteers prayer resources for personal and/or classroom use. The Bible for Little Ones is a great gift for preschool, kindergarten, and first-grade teachers, or for parents of young children. Catholic Prayers and Practices is a wonderful prayer resource for any adult. Teachers will find many fun and useful suggestions for celebrating seasonal and devotional prayers in the classroom in both Our Family Devotions and Our Family Prays.
