REMINDER -- Contribution Request: Teacher/Staff Holiday Gifts and Teacher Appreciation
Mon, Nov 27 10:29am

Hello La Scuola Families!


Thank you so much to everyone who's already donated to our "one and done" Holiday Gifts and Teacher Appreciation Fund... if you haven't yet, there's still time! Please send contributions by this Friday, 1 December.


A quick explanation: each year, the Parents Association of La Scuola (PALS) requests monetary contributions in order to pool our resources and equally gift our wonderful teachers and staff. This replaces individual classroom collections.


Like last year, we are making a single request to cover both teacher/staff winter holiday gifts and teacher appreciation in the spring. We are suggesting a 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 Classroom and Specialist Teachers and Staff (in December)
  • Teacher Appreciation (in the Spring)



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

If you would to contribute, please do so, via Venmo no later than Friday, December 1st.   Please include a message that includes your child(ren)'s name and class.   If you wish to pay in cash, please message us at to coordinate. 


Venmo:  @katytimjoe

Last four digits of Katy's phone number to confirm: --7358


Lastly, if you have ideas for or connections to local businesses that we could potentially support and work with for holiday gifting, please let me know. 


Thank you so much for your support! We really hope this creates one less thing for you to think about over the holidays  and if you have questions, please email or reach out directly.



Katy, Courtney, Sophie and Melissa
