New teacher gifts are designed to be affordable and contemporary
March 2, 2009
Grand Rapids, MICH. – Baudville, a leading provider of employee recognition and award products, announced the release of two new product lines designed specifically for recognition during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 3-9. The collections of teacher gifts are designed to target schools that are experiencing the need to recognize teachers on tighter budgets during this year’s Teacher Appreciation Week celebrations.
In designing the new teacher gifts, Baudville was cognizant of the financial strain schools are experiencing during this difficult economic time. The collections feature teacher gifts priced at $10 and under, keeping teacher recognition affordable. “Budgets may be under strain, but it has never been more important to recognize the valuable work teachers do every day,” said Brad Darooge, Baudville President and CEO.
To help principals and PTAs promote Teacher Appreciation Week in their schools, Baudville created posters with artwork and messaging that coordinate with the new contemporary product designs. The posters are free to customers who buy the new products and are designed to assist event planners in the decorating and communication surrounding Teacher Appreciation Week. Principals are encouraged to display the posters before and during Teacher Appreciation Week, using the exclusive messages and designs as the theme for the weeklong celebration.
“Experts have concluded that giving teachers the status and recognition they deserve as professionals is the best way to improve education in this country,” according to the National PTA website resources on Teacher Appreciation Week. The National Parent Teacher Association (PTA) established Teacher Appreciation Week in 1984 to honor the dedication of teachers who lend their passion and skills to educating children.
Products in Baudville’s new Teacher Appreciation Week collections, Mentor and ABC, include:
- Character Pins
- Gift sets
- Travel mugs
- Key chains
- Tote bags
