Contribute to the
End of the Year Bonus Collection for Teachers
As an end of the year thank you to our Saint Andrew teachers and staff, a bonus collection is organized to show our appreciation for their hard work and dedication.
Please support this collection with your donation of any amount.
WHY A BONUS COLLECTION?
Monetary gifts give teachers the opportunity to use the bonus toward their wishes and needs as they choose. Just like the collection at the holidays, this all school collection is in lieu of individual classroom gifts or individual family gifts to teachers and staff.
Our children encounter so many teachers and staff during their educational week! If you added up the number of people that assist during the week you might find that your child might benefit from instruction by five or more teachers or receive support from several staff members like our school nurse or learning resource staff. Additionally, teachers in the Archdiocese are paid much less than a tenured CPS teacher. This bonus, and the one at Christmas, are attempts at finding ways to close the gap.
WHAT ARE THE CONTRIBUTION DETAILS?
Any amount contributed is appreciated and may be tax-deductible (consult your tax advisor). Last year the average donation was $55/family with over 85% of families participating.
The amount of your contribution is kept confidential. Teachers are notified of which families donated without contribution amount for the purpose of sending thank you notes.
