Teacher Appreciation

A lot of people think teachers have it easy because they get a couple of months off each year in the summer. In reality, most teachers work far more than 40 hours a week during the school year, setting up the classroom, coming up with lesson plans, grading papers and convincing kids to love learning.

Teacher Appreciation Week is an annual weeklong celebration of teachers and all that they do falling in the first full week of May. Teacher Appreciation Week 2015 is right around the corner, May 4 – 8! At Buca di Beppo, we think educators deserve more than a shiny apple on their desk. This year, really show your appreciation for the amazing (and often grossly underpaid) teachers in your world by getting them a Buca di Beppo gift card or throwing a catered Teacher Appreciation Party!

Give ‘em the Gift of Buca!

Alright, students, today’s lesson is all about gift giving! As we hinted earlier, the apple thing is totally played out. A chance to enjoy some authentic Italian cuisine and a night off from thinking about ABCs and 123s? Now that’s another story! Buca di Beppo Gift Cards are redeemable at any Buca restaurant. They come in values starting at $10 and going up to $200 and they have no expiration date or service fees, meaning they’re convenient for both the giver and the recipient! After a year of bagged lunches and cafeteria food, our teachers have earned themselves a hearty Italian meal. We’ve even got a delightfully crusty Apple Crostata on the dessert menu so you can be sure they won’t miss that end-of-the-year Red Delicious. Send your child to school with a plastic gift card in tow or send an eGift Card instantly to your favorite educator’s inbox.

Plan an Appreciation Lunch

With our catering and carry out pan options, setting up a full Italian buffet for a Teacher Appreciation Event at school or in some other local venue is easy. We’ll even deliver right to the classroom as long as it’s within 10 miles of us. A pasta entrée party pan from Buca di Beppo feeds up to 20. Two pans and some sides could easily feed a whole elementary school’s worth of teachers and teaching assistants. Our basic catering packages includes either a mixed green or Caesar salad, two pasta trays, a homemade bread tray and free disposable dinnerware and if that’s not enough for everyone, you can always add additional entrée options or a tempting dessert tray. If you really want to coordinate an awesome Teacher Appreciation event, you might consider booking a Buca di Beppo banquet room for a fun dinner away from the schoolhouse. Call now to reserve your space! We guarantee they’ll appreciate it.
