As the end of the school year approaches, we are continuing with the Gift of Thanks Program online. This program provides a convenient way for you to express your gratitude to the dedicated staff that teaches our children. Your contributions are pooled and converted into gift cards selected by the staff. Participation is not mandatory, and families are welcome to give individual gifts if they prefer. The intent is to simplify end of year gift giving for families and allow the staff some flexibility. The WFES PTA then receives a percentage of every gift card purchased.
Here is how the program works:
- Choose how much you would like to give the staff members. Any amount in $1 increments is appropriate.
- Follow the payment instructions. You can pay with credit card or check
- If you choose to pay with a check, make payable to WFES PTA and deliver the printed copy of your confirmation form with your check to your child’s teacher in an envelope marked “Gift of Thanks.”
- Staff members will receive a certificate with the total amount of gift card dollars they can redeem from an extensive list of retailers. Each contributing family is recognized on the certificate by name only, not amount given. The Gift of Thanks coordinator will be the only person who sees the individual contribution amounts and will ensure that each staff member who receives donations will not receive less than $10.
IMPORTANT DEADLINE INFORMATION: The last day to submit is Monday, May 16th at midnight. We will send a reminder email. If paying by check – your order must be completed online by midnight (May 16th) and your check needs to be delivered to the school by Tuesday, May 17th by 3:30 p.m. If it is not received by this date and time, your order will be deleted. Thank you for following these necessary guidelines.
