We kicked off our monthly Teacher of the Month surprise delivery by doing the morning announcements at Appleton Elementary.

I can honestly say that today was the first time I've made the morning announcements at school -- ever. It was my best work thus far. I really loved being able to announce our Teacher of the Month to not only to the teacher and her class, but to the whole school all at once.

The principal at Appleton Elementary School helped us take it up a notch. He got our Teacher of the Month, Katie Perroni, and her entire class in the library just in time for us to take them by surprise.

Katie Perroni told me she had no idea what was going on, which is exactly what we aim for. We took the element of surprise and expanded it by ten-fold today at Appleton Elementary.

Obviously this teacher is something special because you nominated her and voted her for Teacher of the Month. This is what Ms. Perroni won this morning:

  • $50 gift card from Village Inn
  • Pizza and skating party for 30 at Spin City
  • 1-pound bag of Mesa Blend coffee and a $20 gift card from Colorado Legacy Coffee
  • An insulated drink tumbler from Carville's Automart and a $20 Starbucks gift card
  • 1-hour massage from Rimrock Wellness
  • A balloon bouquet from Elegant Balloon Creations
  • Fresh fruit basket from Willy's Wild Carvings
  • $50 Visa Gift Card Josh DeWitt with Farmers Insurance
  • $50 Visa Gift Card Brigette Targett with Targett and Associates Insurance Solutions
