    This will utilise the Pear Track range providing tracking forr very high value air cargo such as diamond shipments.

    It will inform you that you are not currently connected to your homegroup.
    Most of the gadgets come with extension cable and designed with a
    velcro pad that can be attached to the back
    of the cell phone.

    I'm looking for sports themed doors - specifically basketball if possible, so I'm with you Courtney! Hopefully there's something out there - I think I've got a little over two weeks to get this together.

      Rebecca, How about something like "learning is a slam dunk in Mrs. ? Class"

    I'm looking for a cute phrase that goes along with jelly bellies. The teacher loves them and I want to cut out jelly bean shapes and have the kids write on them but I need a cute catch phrase to tie it together. Thanks!

    How about for a teacher who loves books.....You're #1 in our book!
    Math Teacher: YOU RULE! and have all the kids write something on little rulers cut from yellow construction paper!
    Science Teacher: "You are out of this world" then paint or create planets and have the kids sign them or write on them.

    I love these ideas so much. Thank you so much. I am the Director of a Playschool and had the children write on flowers for the teachers doors. Can anyone think of a catchy phrase to go on the door that will go along with the flowers?

    Great ideas! Anyone have any ideas for a door decoration for Teacher Appreciation using a book theme? She loves to read and so do her students. I was thinking of a picture of a book for each students w/ his or her picture and name on each half. I need a catchy phrase like "Ms. W Rocks and Reads" or "Cool Books on Hot Days...Thanks Ms. W" Corny, but can't think of anything else. All ideas are welcome!! Thanks!
