End of School Year Teacher Appreciation Gifts

End of Year Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Yes, it’s that end-of-school-year time of year again. Though the playground is up (the grand opening was the end of April!), we’re again offering Teacher Appreciation recognition gifts to cover additional costs as we finalize the installation.

If you are planning end-of-year gifts to thank your child’s teachers for their efforts, please consider the Playground Project’s Teacher Appreciation Program.

Through our Thank-a-Teacher Program, you can make a donation in your classroom teacher’s name to the Miller School Playground Fund. A special acknowledgement will be given to your child’s teachers to notify them of your gift.

Any donation, either from the class as a whole or from a single student, is appreciated.  All proceeds from the Teacher Appreciation Program will go to finishing up the Miller School’s playground installation.

Also, depending on the amount and size of the donation, you may choose to consider our Buy-a-Brick Program.

If you have any questions, please email us at fmillerplayground@gmail.com.

Thank you for your continued support in making this playground a reality!

Good-bye to the old Miller playground

The old play structure at the Miller School was removed the last week in February. We happily anticipate the new structure’s installation in the spring!

Also, there’s still time to purchase a commemorative brick engraved with your family’s name or message. If you’re interested, please visit our Programs page for information on the Playground’s Buy-a-Brick program.

Thank you for your continued support!

If you’re trying to decide a gift for your child’s teachers this holiday season, please consider the Playground Project’s Teacher Appreciation Program.

Through our Holiday Thank a Teacher Program, you can make a donation in a teacher’s name to the Miller School Playground Fund. A special acknowledgement will be given to the teachers to notify them of your gift. Any donation, either from the class as a whole or from a single student, is appreciated.

One additional note: You may also choose to consider our Buy-a-Brick Program as a gift for your family this year. The new playground is tentatively scheduled for construction this spring. Our Buy-a-Brick Program is a lasting way to have your family’s name or message included in the Miller School’s new playground.

Thank you for your consideration!
