Volunteer Umbrellas!

A wonderful way to say thank you to your classroom volunteers is to say it with a sweet umbrella!  I found this idea in The Mailbox magazine years ago and made it my own. 

I head out an snatch up all of the black umbrellas at the local Walmart.  I pick up some paint markers in white and black.  I letter them up with thank yous and the year.  Each student comes in and decorates their head with their name. 

I also add a tag that says...Whatever the Weather, we think you shine!



Extra, extra tell Mrs. Schroeder about it!
