Teacher Holiday Fund
We are excited to offer families the option of contributing to the Holiday Fund as a way to recognize your children's teachers and staff at St. Mark's. The idea behind this is to enable families to remember all of the St. Mark's community during the Holiday season. This is the fifth year the Parent Guild has facilitated this effort and the recipients are always overjoyed with their gifts! For your convenience, there are two ways to participate in the Holiday Fund. A donation box is present in Ms. Cofield's office or you can click here to participate online. The deadline for these gifts is Thursday, December 15. At that time, contributions will be tallied and distributed equally to all teachers and staff as a holiday gift from our families.
From my perspective, it has been a wonderful (and easy) way to recognize all of the staff that touch my children's life at the holidays. I typically send a card to the teachers telling them how much we appreciate them and that our family has donated to the fund in their honor. This fund is completely voluntary, families can also give individual gifts if they prefer.
