Is 25 ok or cheap?

Does 36-50 sound nicer for the teachers?
And a nice card/ mug for the therapists or they rather a check too?

If you have the money and are able to that is really beautiful as the end of the year is a very expensive time. Cash is much more appreciated than a small gift. Don’t think any amount is cheap as most aren’t expecting anything now.

$0. Already gave chanukah and purim. And I pay a LOT every month in tuition, plus random fees that aren't included and are assigned whenever.

I am planning to write a card and maybe give a small gift - probably no more than $3 per teacher. But that's it.

Really tight financially and gave nice cards with money for chanukah.
For those that say gifts, what type of gifts?

Lol.. In accounting, CASH IS KING!

No way that teacher appreciates a "gift" and card more than $20 cash. Sorry.

As a teacher, I do. $20 just gets lost in expenses. I won't go and get myself a chocolate bar with it. But I do appreciate a nice Schmerling chocolate Very Happy
As a mother, I give something worth about $10.
This year one of the mothers in my daughter's class is arranging gift that we each give $50 towards (there are 5 morahs).

That may be so but I pay full tuition despite having a single income family (not by choice) and I don’t see my end of the year thank you as a subsidy of their salary, I see it as a show of appreciation and goodwill. I don’t see my $15/teacher as significant but perhaps she’ll use the present I gave her and think of us. Or maybe she’ll regift it, that’s fine too. But I personally don’t like getting cash gifts, it feels impersonal and insignificant.

It's a wonderful idea but troubling at the same time. Will this now start a new trend where it will become mandatory to do end of year gifts to teachers?

I am not that old, but remember how chanukah gifts and purim gifts started in the exact same way. Some parents extended themselves, which then became 'a nice thing to do', which followed by 'recommended' and then it morphed into 'mandatory'. And nowadays, if a teacher/rebbe doesn't receive a gift they see hurt.

Are we going down the same road with end of year gifts?

A simple card should do, no need for a gift. Or just a verbal thank you suffices too.

How many times a year do we need to thank a teacher with a gift? Why isn't a nite or verbal appreciation more than sufficient?

5-10 shekels per child. The moms pool the money towards a gift, and someone weird a thank you letter
