I hope this is in the right folder. As I said in my intro, I am a private music teacher. I have a full studio with about 50 students, and they were very generous this year. In addition to the homemade treats, I got quite a few gift cards and other lovely gifts. All students were thanked in person of course, and I have sent out thank you emails to most of the parents who were not present when the gift was given. My question is, do all you classroom teachers (and others) send out handwritten thank yous for your Christmas gifts from students? Many of these gifts are handmade, and I love them. My inclination is to send written notes, but wanted to see what the rest of you thought.
