8. Thank Your Teacher & Counselor

8. Thank your Teacher and Counselor

  • Hand write a thank you note after you send your applications. It can be sent to school. 
  • As you hear back from schools and make decisions, keep your recommenders informed. 
  • Participate in Lattes for Letters, a joint effort of the PTSA and the Shorewood Career Center, in which teachers/ counselors who have written letters get free lattes delivered to their rooms by grateful seniors. This happens on a Monday, usually in February or March. In spring 2020, the PTSA and parents sent electronic Starbucks cards to all staff who wrote letters. 
  • In the spring as you get ready to graduate, thank your recommenders again with a note or gesture.
