Take a few moments to send a personalised card and thoughtful message to brighten their day and help them through the last few tough days before their vacation.
If you're struggling to find the right words for your end-of-school cards, don't worry! Our helpful guide is here to help you create the perfect encouragement cards for students or teacher appreciation cards.
How to Write an Encouragement Card for Students
The end of an academic year can be extremely stressful for students. It is difficult to study for exams, finish term work, and achieve ideal grades. Fortunately, recognizing their hard work and celebrating their progress can give them a boost of self-confidence. If you add a few encouraging words, you can help them end on a high note.
Whether you are a teacher, a parent, or a fellow student, consider sending a student encouragement card. Select a card that recognizes and congratulates the student for their work and expresses sincere sentiments about their achievements.
On the inside of the card, write a personalised message for the student by following these simple steps:
Address the student by their first name or a positive nickname.
Acknowledge one of their highest achievements throughout the school year, whether it is higher grades, stellar attendance, outstanding behaviour, or excellent teamwork.
Thank or praise them for their dedication, effort, hard work, or other stand-out actions or behaviours.
Add a few words of encouragement for the end of the term.
Choose a light hearted or funny sign-off.
Sign your name or nickname.
How to Write a Teacher Appreciation Card
Teachers work tirelessly daily to care for their students and help them achieve a well-rounded, quality education. Often, they go above and beyond to help them accomplish their goal and reach their highest and best. Students or parents may express their admiration, respect, and gratitude towards teachers by sending a teacher appreciation card. It can mean the world to teachers working hard to make a difference for their students.
Start by choosing a thank you card acknowledging that they are a fantastic teacher. It lets the teacher know you are grateful for their influence and impact from the beginning. Plus, it sets a wonderful tone for the rest of your personalised message.
Take the following steps to write your note inside your card:
Address the teacher with their title (Dr, Mr, Ms, Miss, or Mrs) and last name. If the teacher prefers the class to call them by their first name, still include their title before their name.
Thank the teacher for specific actions throughout the year, such as helping with challenging material or spending time inspiring the class. If you are a parent, address your child by name if you are grateful for actions toward your child in particular.
Show admiration for one or more particular qualities about the teacher.
Express positive wishes for the teacher at the end of the term and in the upcoming school year.
Select a professional sign-off, such as "sincerely" or "best wishes."
Sign the card with your full name. If you are a parent, indicate your child's name as well.
Now that you understand how to create an end-of-school card, you are ready to write and deliver the perfect message to students or teachers! All you need is a beautiful encouragement card or thank you card, and some time to personalise your message. Before you know it, you’ll be making someone’s whole day!
