Contribution Request: Teacher/Staff Holiday Gifts and Teacher Appreciation
Sat, Nov 16 4:45pm

Ciao La Scuola Parents!

The holidays are nearly here and, as usual, there is much going on at the school. 

In past years, the Parents Association of La Scuola (PALS) made two separate requests for monetary contributions in order to pool our resources and equitably gift our wonderful teachers and staff. 

This year we are changing it up a bit and would like to start a ONE AND DONE request. 

We are combining the two and requesting a suggested contribution of $85 per student. However, any amount that is comfortable and meaningful for your family is perfect. 

We will pool all of the funds collected and distribute 50% to each of the following: 

  • Holiday Gifts for La Scuola Teachers and Staff (in December)
    • Last year each La Scuola teacher and staff member received a $100 amex gift card plus a $30 movie gift certificate.      
  • Teacher Appreciation (in the Spring)
    • Last year each teacher, including classroom and specialists, were given cash gifts of  $200+, a self care gift certificate, and treats in the breakroom.



Contributions this year will determine what we are able to gift. 

If you would to contribute, please do so, via Venmo or Paypal, no later than Thursday, November 28th.  Please include a message that includes your child(ren)'s name and class.
