Over these past weeks, many parents have developed a deep appreciation for the job that our teachers do each day. Here is a way to say thank you.
By donating to Newton Schools Foundation’s Honor Thy Teacher program in the name of one or more teachers, you can show your appreciation for them AND support your children’s schools. In recent weeks, NSF directed its resources toward the challenges of COVID-19 with an $85,500 grant for the Newton Public Schools to purchase 300 Chromebooks for students needing access to online learning during school closures.
Dollars raised will go to funding grants for promising educational initiatives, professional development, and programs that close gaps in opportunity and achievement. NSF will notify each teacher honored of your gift and share their names with Principals and the Superintendent. A list of honored teachers will appear on the NSF website and in the Newton TAB.
It’s easy to donate online.
