It’s Teacher Appreciation Week

This is Teacher Appreciation Week! If you want to do something special for your child’s teacher or other staff this year, consider the Newton Schools Foundation’s Honor Thy Teacher program. Make a $25.00 donation (or any amount) to the foundation in the teacher’s name. Notifications will be sent to each teacher honored, as well as to Principals and the Superintendent. In addition, their names will appear in a special announcement in the Newton TAB. Look for a flyer in your child’s backpack or in your mailbox if you have children in the upper grades. To donate online and to find out more about the programs NSF funds, go to www.newtonschoolsfoundation.org. Donations are tax-deductible and go toward programs enhancing educational excellence, including valuable professional development opportunities for teachers, initiatives to close the achievement gap, and a wealth of new curricula and learning opportunities for elementary, middle and high school students. May 7th – 11th is Teacher Appreciation Week
