Honor a teacher, coach, or other staff member

The Education Foundation has a program - Thanks for Making a Difference - that provides a way for parents, students, community members, and alumni to recognize teachers, coaches, and other staff who have been inspirational and/or made difference in their lives or in the lives of their children. It also is a way to honor or remember a friend or family member, by making a tax-deductible contribution to the Education Foundation in their name. 

The Thanks for Making a Difference form is available  here.

Donations may be sent to the District office, any school office, or made online. If making your donation online, please send the completed form to the District or school office, or by email to

Donations Carry Double Benefit!

Good news for the Education Foundation and donors! Any dollar that goes from the Foundation to the School District now carries a double benefit!

The district is paying for its beautiful new buildings and renovations with federal zero interest bonds, which save the district about three million dollars in interest. However, the bonds are only zero interest as long as the district can show other donations of time or money that total $740,000. The district has received a determination that Foundation donations can count towards this total. 

This great news means that Foundation dollars will help kids and help save millions for the taxpayer at the same time. Everybody wins!

Thank you for your donation!
