If you are looking for another way to say “Thank You!” during Teacher Appreciation Week, please consider Newton Schools Foundation’s Honor Thy Teacher campaign. This special program was established more than 20 years ago. It provides an opportunity for families to thank teachers or other school personnel by giving a gift to NSF in their honor.

NSF is a non-profit organization that raises funds to enhance educational excellence throughout Newton’s public schools. Your gift will support professional development that gives teachers new tools and strategies, as well as new and promising curricula for middle school students. Click here to see a video or read more about the grants that NSF has funded in our schools, including programs in art, civics, math, music, science, social and cultural studies, literature and writing instruction, and social-emotional learning. 

 After receiving your donation, NSF will:

Notify the honored teachers and staff of your gift at the end of the school year

Share the honoree names with the Superintendent and Principals

List each of those honored on the NSF website and in the Newton TAB

You can make your tax-deductible donation online at www.newtonschoolsfoundation.org, or mail it to Newton Schools Foundation, P.O. Box 590020, Newton Centre, MA 02459. Please be sure to include the names of the teachers and/or staff that you are honoring.  If you have children in NECP or elementary school, check your student backpacks for a flyer in the coming weeks, or the U.S. Mail at home if you have middle or high school students.
