National Teacher Appreciation Week is celebrated the first week of May each year. While Teacher Appreciation Day is May 5th, these hardworking and often underpaid teachers and staff deserve an entire week of recognition. Below I’ve made three Cinco de Mayo Teacher Appreciation printables (flyers) for the special occasion. Grab them below!
Cinco de Mayo Teacher Appreciation
These play on words printables are fun and engaging. Since Cinco de Mayo also coincides with Teacher Appreciation Week I put the two themes together. Everyone loves tacos, right?!
Whether you’re a parent looking for teacher appreciation gift ideas or a PTA/PTSO planning a themed week of celebrating, these free printables are a perfect way to reward all those hardworking teachers.

Included in the printables are a Mexican Fiesta invitation and two foodie-themed flyers that can be hung up wherever you are decorating for the party. Or simply attach a Mexican restaurant gift card to one of the foodie flyers and have your child hand it to their teacher.
Cinco de Mayo Teacher Appreciation Ideas:
- Monday – breakfast (think breakfast wraps or pan dulce and popular Mexican breakfast danish, and coffee)
- Tuesday – Taco Tuesday themed lunch (get these Fiesta themed table runners and here’s an inexpensive party backdrop with photo props included!)
- Wednesday – happy hour (non-alcoholic margaritas in reusable cups)
- Thursday – snacks (individual chips and dips like these snack boxes)
- Friday – sweet treats (like churro cupcakes and hot chocolate)
Looking for other teacher appreciation gift ideas? We recommend looking for your child’s teacher at DonorsChoose. If they have a project that needs funding, put a little $$ towards it. The teacher will get notified when you do. It’s a wonderful way to thank a teacher by supporting their classroom!
Another idea that’s always favored by teachers is local restaurant gift cards or an Amazon gift card.
P.S. National Principal Appreciation Day is also in May (May 1st to be exact). Don’t forget those hardworking principals that keep the school running year-round. That’s right – they don’t get the summer off. I know because I’m married to one and he very much values small tokens of appreciation too!
