This product was created after a colleague of mine and I arranged a wonderful week for staff during staff appreciation week. My principal left a note in my mailbox thanking me but it wasn’t really a personal note, just a checklist of possible things I did right. He just checked them off. I was left feeling like, “You couldn’t take 3 minutes to handwrite a thank you?”
Out of feeling unappreciated, I decided that if administrators or those in higher positions had my “Quick Notes” product, many teachers would feel valued.
All the notes in this product allow you to either type a note and then print it or even better print and jot a quick note. These come in both color and black line which can be printed on colored cardstock. I would print multiple copies and carry them around. These are perfect for popping in classrooms for a quick walk-through, thanking a staff member for helping out, or sending a congratulations! These are definitely better than an email! They show that you care and they are upbeat! Here are the different Quick Notes that are included:
2 different Thank You notes
Just wanted to say…
When I popped in…
Just a quick note to say…
You’re a star (add your own glowing observation)]
Thanks for lending a hand (doing PD, covering a class, etc.)
Great Job (add your own note or letter)
On My Walk Through, I Noticed (space for what the teacher was doing, students, environment)
Glow and Grow-make a comment on something positive and one thing to consider to help the teacher grow
PQP-Praise (something well done) Question (a wondering you had) Polish (something that might make what you observed even better)
We’re Gl.ad You’re Back! We Missed You!-someone who was on leave or was ill
I’m glad you’re back! It’s not the same without you!
All of these have room for you to personalize a message which, believe me, will go a long way. One of my former principals wrote me a handwritten note one time and I still have it and value it!
Be that person who everyone knows cares about them and build morale in the process!
This is a good deal! Have you bought a greeting card lately? Astronomically expensive! These are small but large enough to make a BIG impact!
Thanks for stopping by!
