As a high school senior, you have a special day coming. This special day is the prom. Some of the school officials are likely to help you and the other participating seniors set the event up. You will learn how to thank school staff members for helping with your prom.
The easiest thing to do is directly thank them. You can say, “Thank you very much for your help. You took time out of your busy schedule to help and we appreciate it. We could not have done it without you.”
You have the option of throwing them a party. One way you can do it is to let them know in advance that you are having a party for them. Another is to throw them a surprise party. If you want to do this, you will have to be creative and think of a good way to get them to come to a particular location on or off campus without them knowing what you have in mind.
You should give them credit at the event. Yes, you should allow everyone in attendance to learn the part the staff played in making this event possible. You should use the microphone to acknowledge each individual staff member who contributed.
It would be a nice gesture to ask them for a dance. The dance does not have to be long or intimate. You can simply dance with them for a few minutes without making physical contact then get back to your prom date.
Once you finish taking care of the planning with the teachers, you may thank them while making physical contact. One way you can do it is to shake their hand. Another is to give them a hug.
You have the option of letting people outside of your school community know about the contributions. One thing you can do is write a letter to the editor in your local newspaper. Another is to spread the news through Facebook and Twitter.
There are three more ways you can thank them. The first is to get them a gift that is appropriate but not necessarily lavish. The second is to treat them to a group dinner. The third is to start being on your best behavior at school.
You have learned what to do once your teachers help you set up your prom. By heeding this advice, you will successfully express your gratitude and make your teachers happy about contributing to the event.
