Are you trying to figure out how to thank your children’s teachers for their wonderful work this holiday season? Here’s a great way to give a gift that teachers appreciate and is an easy way to remain in compliance with the law that forbids public employees from receiving gifts valued at more than $50. AEF’S THANK A TEACHER/STARS IN OUR SCHOOLS!
Contribute to the Amherst Education Foundation in a teacher’s name and they will get the gift that keeps on giving: money that comes back to the schools in the form of excellence grants. The teacher will receive a card from AEF indicating that you supported AEF in their honor. Click here Thanking a Teacher through our Stars in Our Schools; or go to www.amhersteducationfoundation.org and click on “Stars in Our Schools”.
How is AEF helping the elementary schools? AEF grants are funding the following programs:
- Math coaches are receiving training to help underperforming kids in grades 3-6!
- Students with special needs district-wide have much-needed laptop computers!
- Music teachers are bringing visiting artists to the schools!
Thank you and happy holidays,
The Board of Amherst Education Foundation
