If you are looking for a way to say “Thank You!” during Teacher Appreciation Week, please consider Newton Schools Foundations’ Honor Thy Teacher campaign. This special program, established more than 20 years ago, provides an opportunity for families to thank teachers or other school personnel by giving a gift to NSF in their honor.
NSF is a non-profit organization that raises funds to enhance educational excellence throughout Newton's public schools. Your gift supports opportunities for teachers to access valuable professional development, initiatives to close the achievement gap, and new learning programs for high school students that range the gamut of content areas, including: science, technology, arts and math; social, civic and cultural understanding; and leadership training.
After receiving each donation (suggested amount - $25/teacher), 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.
Make your tax-deductible donation online at 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 whom you are honoring.
