Don't miss your chance to thank teachers and staff who made a difference to your child this year! Making a donation to Newton Schools Foundation’s Honor Thy Teacher program is a great way to do this. Look for a recent mailing about this program and send in your check, or donate at newtonschoolsfoundation.org. Donations are tax-deductible and fund professional development for teachers, initiatives to close the achievement gap, and new curricula and learning opportunities throughout Newton’s schools. Teachers, as well as their principal and the superintendent, will be notified of this honor, and if you donate by July 31, the honorees' names will appear in a special notification in the Newton TAB.
