Are you looking for a way to honor and thank the exceptional teachers and staff who have motivated, educated and inspired your students to grow and achieve all year? Consider participating in Newton Schools Foundations’ Honor Thy Teacher campaign. This special program, now in its 20th year, enables families to thank teachers or other school personnel (such as a special education aide, a fine arts or music teacher, or a coach or counselor) by giving a gift to NSF in their honor. After receiving each donation (a suggested amount is $25 per teacher/staff member), NSF will notify the honored teachers and staff of your gift; share the honoree names with the Superintendent and Principals; and list each of those honored in the Newton TAB.
You can make your tax-deductible donation on-line at www.newtonschoolsfoundation.org, or mail it to Newton Schools Foundation, P.O. Box 590020, Newton Centre, MA 02459. Please be sure to include the names of the teachers and/or staff that you are honoring. Or look for a flyer in your mail in the coming weeks that includes a donation form.
NSF is a non-profit organization that raises funds to enhance the quality of education throughout Newton’s public schools. Your gift supports NSF initiatives including teachers’ professional development and new curricula and learning opportunities, including the following at the middle school level:
- Middle School Peer Leadership
- Generation Citizen
- Integrating Coding in the Curriculum
- Responsive Classroom Training
- The Calculus Project
