A Note About Our Annual Campaign
Dear Eliot Families,
We have been through a lot over the past year and a half as a school and community! We are proud of the way our teachers, administrators and staff have adapted to these challenging times and continued to show up for our students and families.
The John Eliot Parent Teacher Council (PTC) has been working hard to support the school as they support each of us and our students every day. The PTC has made it possible for our students in every grade to benefit from curriculum enrichment programming, for new students to receive Eliot t-shirts and welcome signs, and to take part in field trips and other activities with no added expense for buses. We also support teachers by providing them with funds for supplies for their classrooms and by thanking them with well-deserved teacher appreciation events throughout the year. Lastly, we support the administrative staff by providing them with the funds they require to adapt to the evolving needs of the school or of our families. For example, funding from the PTC made it possible for the school to purchase cubbies for the new classrooms that were created due to the pandemic. The work that we do would not be possible without the generous support of each of you.
We sincerely hope that you will consider a gift to the PTC this year. Your generous support will make it possible for us to continue to provide needed assistance and support to the entire Eliot Community during these continuing challenging and unstable times. Please give an amount that makes sense for your family. Often families give $50 per child at Eliot, while others give more or less. A gift in any amount will be extremely helpful to our school and participation of all families is of utmost importance. Please give what you can and know it is greatly appreciated.
