Catering Teacher Appreciation Day

Easy as 1, 2, 3

Ugh. It’s the end of the school year, and teacher morale is low.  Distracted students, increased paperwork, and looming deadlines can be a challenge any time but can feel overwhelming in May. Good news, though.  National Teacher Appreciation Day is right around the corner on May 8th.  Is your PTO ready?  With a few thoughtful gestures and well-chosen treats, you can make your teachers feel special.  If you’re looking for something fun, different, and budget friendly, the experts at Ice Cream on Wheels have the perfect lesson planned.

A Novel Idea

Start by showing your thanks with some great food.  Store bought cookie get stale after sitting in the teacher’s lounge all day.  Plus, that idea has been done a thousand times. For a unique treat that’s sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face, try ice cream novelties—hand held, individually wrapped frozen desserts.  We’re talking ice cream sandwiches, Bomb Pops, Turtle Sundae Bars… and that’s just for starters.  From the colorful packaging to the delicious treat inside, novelties evoke memories of summer, sun, and play. A delicious treat that also gives your teachers a preview of summer vacation?  Now that’s an A+ idea.


Catering with us is a breeze.  Just choose a menu—budget, family, or corporate—and then pick your package.  Either grab a cooler stocked with frozen treats at our warehouse, or order a fully loaded ice cream cart that we’ll deliver right to the teacher’s lounge. If you’re looking for something really fun, order an ice cream truck to deliver your novelty treats.  You can order a truck stocked with goodies that’ll come straight to the school yard.  And, our trucks come equipped with a licensed, professional driver to hand out the ice cream.  No matter what package you choose, your novelties are guaranteed to stay frozen all day long.

Make a Memory

Now that you’re sold on the food, it’s time to turn the treat into a sweet memory.  First, enlist the help of your school community.  Spread the word that you will be spending the day celebrating your fabulous teachers.  Invite students and parents to write notes of appreciation to their favorite teacher in the building.  Encourage younger kids to draw a picture of themselves with their special person. Have volunteers collect your notes for distribution, and invite your teachers to stop by the teacher’s lounge for a surprise.  When teachers walk in, hand them their packet of notes and invite them to choose a novelty treat or two.  Encourage your teachers to relax, put up their feet, and read through their notes while enjoying their dessert.  While relishing in the ice cream goodness, teachers will read about the many ways they are valued by their students and parents.  What could be better?  Trust us—this event is one that your teachers are sure to remember.
