Honor a School Employee

Want to participate? Why not honor a past or present school employee: superintendents, district office personnel, principals, teachers, assistants, bus drivers, cafeteria employees, and custodians? This is a great way to show your appreciation for those who have impacted you or your children. Remember them during holidays, birthdays, Teacher Appreciation Week, and as an end of the year tribute. All honorees, regardless of the gift amount, will receive an acknowledgement. All gifts are tax deductible and all monies go directly to support student programs and scholarships.
