If you are looking for a way to say “Thank You!” as the school year comes to a close, please consider Newton Schools Foundations’ Honor Thy Teacher campaign. Established more than 20 years ago, this program provides an opportunity for families to thank teachers or other school personnel by giving a gift to the Newton Schools Foundation in their honor while also complying with the Newton Public School’s teacher gift policy.
Newton Schools Foundation (NSF) is a non-profit organization that raises funds to enhance educational excellence throughout Newton’s public schools. Your gift supports both professional development that gives teachers new tools and strategies, as well as novel curricula for elementary students. Click here to see a video or read more about NSF-funded projects, which encompass: art; civics; math; music; science; social and cultural studies; literature and writing instruction; and social-emotional learning.
After receiving each donation, 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 on the NSF website and 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 in your mail (middle school) or your child’s backpack (elementary) for the NSF donation form.
