I Appreciate You Gift to Students

I Appreciate You Gift to Students

I finally found the last I Appreciate You graduating gift certificate for PickyKidPix. Their 5th grade teacher had each student in the class writes one sentence about every other student, and these comments are typed up on a certificate and presented to teach student. It’s a snapshot of how they were perceived during their year in 5th grade.

Here’s my oldest I Appreciate You certificate for Grasshopper and Sensei and my son’s 5th grade I Appreciate You class certificates . PickyKidPix’s soccer team did one too for team building.

    • Hi MaryAnne,
      I love that it’s an expensive but meaningful gift. The kids really know each other by 5th grade so the comments are especially on pointe and makes me realize that my kids now at at 17 was very much the same at 12 and 5.
