The teachers and staff at Greentree Elementary School are feeling the love this week as the Parent Council take time to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week. 
 
"It's more of the parent council that is just saying thank you to the teachers. The students themselves don't have a whole lot that they take part in, (but) they take part in the decorating. We decorate all the teachers doors and each of the students do a little piece for that," stated Tina Hodgson, President of the Parent Council. 
 
Each year they 'theme' the teacher appreciation week and this years theme is Lego.
 
"Each of the kids coloured a Lego brick with their name and that gets stuck on the door with a phrase like the teachers name and says "is awesome" with a picture of the teachers head on a Lego body," explained Hodgson. 
 
Besides having their doors decorated, the parent council members put items in the teachers mailboxes daily, which varies from chocolate bars to a small gift. 
 
"We have something going on each day, like today (March 13) McDonald's sponsored muffins and smoothies for all the teachers this morning," outlined Hodgson. "Because it's a Lego theme, we have a build your own theme all week, so tomorrow is build your own snacks. Wednesday is build your own baked potato lunch and Thursday, Tim Horton's is sponsoring coffee and treats. We have a dinner that we host on Thursday evening that we host, because it's parent teacher interview night. The parent council host the dinner in between interviews."
 
Hodgson expressed that this is a fun week where the council can be creative to come up with a little something everyone can enjoy. 
 
"I just want to say thanks on behalf of all the parents, kids and parent council for everything that our teachers do. For all the extra time they spend with our kids and helping our kids become great little people," added Hodgson.
