Thank A Teacher - Save the Date
Thank Your Child's Teacher for a Great Year through the Thank-A-Teacher Appeal!
The Thank-A-Teacher program is a great way to tell your child's teachers how much you appreciate the work that they do! Each educator honored by a donation receives a personalized card from the Education Foundation thanking them for their work, and includes the name of your child. Last spring, almost 200 educators received Thank-A-Teacher acknowledgements from families. It's a popular program that recognizes teachers for their dedication, and helps to support their efforts to give students the tools and motivation to become lifelong learners. All proceeds fund Hopkinton Education Foundation grants in the schools.
Thank-A-Teacher donations will be accepted until June 8.
