Great Gift Ideas for School Board Appreciation Month

Every January, schools and communities celebrate School Board Appreciation Month to thank all those members and directors for their tireless, unpaid, and often unappreciated work throughout the year. Many individual districts also pick a specific week during the month to hold events, celebrate achievements, or find other ways to show their gratitude.

Whether you're part of the school district administration, the principal of a school, or the head of a parent-teacher organization, thank your school board for all the fundraising, decision-making and leadership they've shown to help strengthen education in your community.
