(Hello! I am re-posting the Winter Thanks information as a reminder. Contributions are due Wednesday, 12/17 and may be turned into Mary Margaret or Mae. PLEASE NOTE YOUR CHILD(REN)’S GRADE(S)! This saves us a lot of time looking this information up in the directory as we have to go through all 9 GRADES to make sure we are not missing siblings. Full details are below. Thanks!)
At this time of year, many students and parents like to bring in a gift for their child(ren)’s teachers. As students often have many teachers at Exploris, this can get a bit tricky! We want to thank everyone, but figuring out what to do can be daunting.
Many years ago, a group of parents organized an optional opportunity for parents to contribute towards a much appreciated grade-level cash gift for our teachers and staff which has now become an annual winter (and end-of-year) tradition. To participate, you can simply send in a check (or cash) to the PTO, 90% of which is evenly divided among the grade’s teachers and 10% divided among the specialists and staff.
If you would like to participate:
- please send in cash or a check (made payable to Exploris PTO)
- *in an envelope marked “Winter Thanks” or “Teacher Gift” with your name, your child(ren)’s name(s), and grade(s)
- to Mary Margaret or Mae (either one is fine if you have children in both schools)
- by Wednesday, December 17th.
(*It is important to label the envelope with “Winter Thanks” or “Teacher Gift” so that it is not confused with school care, spirit wear, or field trip payments.)
If you have any questions, please let us know!
