I recently delivered a fistful of student-written thank you letters to various staff here at school. Yes, high school students wrote thank you letters on actual paper with pens. [Well, some were in pencil, but those good intentions were evident.]
Giving thanks isn’t something we should do only in November–there’s always a reason to offer up even a hastily scrawled thank you note. Trust me, your receiver will be pleasantly surprised.
While screening our films, I told students that they had to write a thank you card to any adult who helped them with their film. I handed them the card and collected them at the end of class. They key is to have cards at the ready.
NSHS Theatre received a thank you card too!
That’s right, we received a nice letter in the mail this past Valentine’s Day: Sunrise House received our money from the fall play, “Bang Bang You’re Dead” ticket proceeds. That show was a blast–and we are glad to help our community.
Are you still not dragging your heels over those holidays thank you cards? How will Granny send you money for graduation when you haven’t thanked her for the Christmas cash?! It’s not too late! No more excuses! Tell us here about a thank you that still needs to be written and then GO DO IT! Good luck.
