Generally, there are two times of the year when gifts are given to teachers and staff: the winter holiday period in December and the end of the school year in June. In both seasons the Quaker testimony of Simplicity should guide gift giving.
In December, small, individual hand-made gifts are the appropriate expression of thanks. We strongly encourage you to include your children in the creation and giving of these gifts. In June, along with small, individual gifts, each individual class may choose to give a class gift to the teacher. If this is to be done, the Parent Community representatives from each class will coordinate the effort. It is up to each family to choose to participate, but all children will be included in a class gift whether or not a family chooses to participate financially. Each family may contribute any amount up to $10.
