A Note About Our Annual Campaign
October 7, 2020
Dear Eliot families,
Recently you received a unique request – one that a year ago we
never would have thought we would send – a request for
playground equipment. John Eliot students learning in the hybrid
model need equipment that is classroom-specific, as our
administrators continue to modify “school as usual” and adapt to
the public health crisis facing us all.
What will our teachers and students working fully online or in the
hybrid model need this week, this winter, or this spring? How will
the Parent Teacher Council (PTC) support our teachers and
provide educational experiences for all students in a year when
field trips and in-person cultural events are not possible? As needs
continue to evolve, our ability to respond depends on you and our
community. John Eliot School needs your participation, ideas and
generosity now more than ever before.
Your generous gift to the PTC Fund will enable us to seek new
ways to support our students, teachers and Principal Bourn during
this unusual time. Your support will allow us to be agile and
responsive to the changing needs at John Eliot School.
We hope that you will consider a gift amount that makes sense for
your financial situation. Often families give $50 per child at Eliot,
while others give more. Historically, gifts range from $5 - $1,000.
Making a gift of any size to John Eliot School’s PTC Fund reflects
your unwavering commitment to the school and stands as a
testimony of support during these challenging times.Please join us.
