Teacher Appreciation Week is May 7-11. Consider recognizing a favorite teacher or staff person with the Newton Schools Foundation’s Honor Thy Teacher program. This can also be a wonderful way for families of graduating seniors to thank teachers they remember fondly.Make a $25 donation (or any amount) to the foundation in the teacher’s name. Notifications will be sent to each teacher honored, the Principal and Superintendent and their names will appear in theNewton TAB. To donate online and to find out more about the NSF, go to www.newtonschoolsfoundation.org. NSF have funded programs at Newton South that aim to close the achievement gap as well as provide professional development opportunities for teachers.
