As the school year comes to a close, many families choose to express their gratitude and affection through gift-giving. With this in mind, we would like to remind you of our policy around this practice, which is reiterated in the Student and Family Handbook. In short, please remember that in keeping with the Quaker testimony of simplicity, gestures of appreciation, such as cards, notes, and child-made pictures/tokens are most appropriate, if you choose to express thanks by material means. The school discourages expensive gifts or organized monetary collections.
Please know that as educators, we consider your trust in us, the appreciation you share, and most of all, the company of your children each day, the greatest gifts you as families could possibly give.
