GRACIAS for the Holidays
As reported by class and grade-level reps, we are simplifying gifting this holiday season. While our class-specific gifts recognize all
those in a student-facing/instructional role with our children, there are so many others in administrative and staff support roles who
help our school to thrive.
This year, we have added an option for parents to contribute to a new fund called
GRACIAS: Gratefully Recognizing Awesome, Caring Individuals at School.
Similar to class-level gifting, participation in GRACIAS is completely optional and pressure-free. Our intent is to make
life easier for parents while ensuring that every member of our wonderful community receives some holiday-season recognition.
GRACIAS applies to all employees except for classroom teachers and specialists who are recognized via class-specific
gifting led by parent reps.
Monies collected via GRACIAS will be divided equally for employees through Amazon gift cards. All contributions will be anonymous and given
on behalf of the Villa Parent Community.
- To participate, simply Venmo VPA Treasurer at Venmo @shawna-lydon.
