Last year, for the first day of school, I gave my daughter's teacher a chrysanthemum. I attached a note that read: "Looking forward to a great year. Let me know if I can do anything to help! Love, N's "mum." This year I thought it would be fun to do an apple theme. I found these tiny apple pies- they are only about 2 1/2 inches in diameter- and I included a napkin and fork and tied them up with some red/white twine. A small gesture to let them know just how much they are appreciated.
