Give the Gift of Gratitude

One of the greatest gifts you can give is remembering those who have made a difference in your life or the lives of others.  Gifts of Gratitude is an opportunity to share with others the story of the positive impact made by a teacher, para-educator, food service provider, bus driver, administrator, or engaged community member, whether in years past or as recently as yesterday.


We offer Gifts of Gratitude as an opportunity for all members of our community to celebrate the difference makers of the past and present. You are invited to share your story regardless of where you might have attended school.


You can help those who are continuing the work of making a difference in the lives of students by making a financial donation in remembrance or celebration.
