We are on a budget and there are multiple people who have helped keep my ds safe this year. Since not everyone can go into the staff lounge, what could I give them so that it could reach everyone placement-wise? This year is different since he is in 1st grade, there were a lot more people involved. I thought of flowers in the office instead of food, which would be put in the lounge, I'm sure. Certain people I was going to give their own card to, and also have a general card as well for others. The following people are on my list to thank to give you an idea of my predicament.

Principal
Custodian (a very special guardian angel)
Nurse
Teachers (my son's two homeroom teachers)
Cafeteria monitor and volunteer parent
Staff (office)
Yard duty

One thing I keep saying I will do is write the school board about the people who have helped keep my son safe.
As to a gift, I think most adults appreciate donations to a charity - perhaps something local - SPCA, a charity that helps children, etc.

Since there are sooo many people you want to thank, I would have your child draw a picture (of him and that particular teacher/person) then frame it. I find great frames at the local dollar store to frame like 5x7 drawings to give as gifts. That way it is from him and you can include a card to thank them in your own words as well.

I agree with the above thought about letters.
Thank you letter for asstistants, custodians, lunch room monitors are so rare that thay will feel great and it may help them get a bit of a raise. Frankly a raise or promotion that could be the result of such a letter is way ahead of treats or small gifts!!
Be sure to copy them or their boss if they work for an outside service.

If you have a color printer, maybe have your son draw a picture, then turn it into a card, and have him write a thank you message in each one. That *is* a long list! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
