Donate to the Teacher/Staff Appreciation Fund



The countdown to the end of the school year is well underway.  But before we pack away the pencils and the backpacks, please take a moment to donate to the PTA’s Teacher and Staff Thank You Fund. 
This fund is a newer effort to reward not just the very hard working classroom teachers with a year-end gift, but also the wonderful specialists who enrich our kids’ lives, including but not limited to: Tracy Jeffcott in the Media Center, who can always find the perfect book; Lynn Lewis, whose art displays brighten our hallways; Rich House, who gets kids running, playing, and laughing while learning key sports skills; David Spitzerg, who not only introduces our kids to musical instruments but also has to listen to them practice; and, our other music teachers, dedicated ESOL specialists, and reading specialists.  In the past, these teachers and staff members have not received anything at the end of the year in recognition of their hard work.  All 54 Somerset staff members make a difference in our children’s lives, and this is a chance to say thank you. 
In addition, families may give an individual gift to their child’s teacher.  MCPS guidelines state that gifts are to be kept to $20 per gift and $100 per family cumulative gift throughout the year.
