Honor a Teacher While Supporting the Newton Schools Foundation
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‚Äô Honor Thy Teachercampaign. This special program, now in its 20th year, enables families to thank teachers or other school personnel by giving a gift to NSF in their honor.
After receiving each donation (suggested amount – $25/teacher), NSF will:

¬∑¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† 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 that will be sent home in your child‚Äôs backpack that includes a donation form.
