    Any suggestions on what to do for teachers as they are getting ready to go back to school.

    Ooh, as a teacher I would love that. Definitely use the 3-tier rack, and SA that you have. Put out some mini-catalogs with a "special" of some sort for teachers attached to the catalogs for those that book.
    * bagels
    * flavored cream cheese (that would be great in the SA trio)
    Can't think of anything else right now, that sounds great for a morning item

    Fresh fruit in the trifle bowl, coffee in the carafe, perhaps a breakfast item in the DCB, donuts or something else sweet like that (for those that like sweet items in the AM) arranged on one of the SA plates, orange juice/lemondade/cran-rasp fizz in QSP.

    I agree...have a special for teachers that order or book. OR do a mystery host type thing and make it a cooking/catty show (cooking b/c you have cooked for them) and raffle off the host benefits. Make it fun, delicious, and easy. Back to school is one of the busiest times for teachers. Lots and lots to do and very little time to get it all done.

    I taught for 8 years, before I "retired" to be as SAHM. I would have loved something like this.

    Oh! Have a flyer on the DCB and how it can simplify the time in the kitchen and make dinner quick and easy. And/or something about how PC tools can do the same thing...ask you how!

  5. The cream cheese block with the Pineapple Rum Sauce over it and some crackers is always good too. There used to be a good peanut butter dip recipe that was great on apples.

    Coming from a teacher, we like anything edible! :D

    Staples by my house is having a "Teacher's Appreciation Day" on the 22nd in which I guess they have special offers for teachers and some raffles etc. They had asked me to set up a table. I am offering a TTA filled with pens, pencils, rulers, Sharpies, glue sticks etc. I am also giving out "gift bags" in which will have a flyer about fundraising, the opportunity and then a mini catalog and a sweet mocha hazelnut sprinkle sample, and a coupon for 10% off their purchase. I only have one party so hoping to get enough to make another party LOL I am trying to come up with a flyer of products that teachers can use in the classroom.

    I'd suggest a special welcome gift that the PSO would buy from you. If you sold 100 can strainers, corn butterer or small spreaders you would have a $500 party. Give a 10% to the PSO and put your name on every gift.
