Newton Public Schools Gift Policy

During this holiday season, many of us are looking for ways to show our appreciation to our amazing teachers and staff at Lincoln-Eliot. We want to remind our community of the Newton Public Schools Gift Policy. A one time, yearly gift of no more than $150 is permissible from the class, as long as no individual names are included. If you would like to show your appreciation on an individual level this holiday season, parents and children can give gifts in the form of sentimental tokens. Letters, drawings, and crafts are cherished by our teachers and staff. NPS also encourages families to recognize specific staff members with a donation to the Newton Schools Foundation’s Honor Thy Teacher program.
