*The Education Foundation - Teacher Tribute - a great way to give thanks! *

This is a great time of year to give thanks and praise any of the wonderful
teachers, administrators, bus drivers, nurses, parent volunteers or staff
of the schools in the district!



The Education Foundation Teacher Tribute Program is a wonderful way to give
thanks. You can make a donation thru our website (
*http://www.ucfef.org/teachertribute.html*<http://www.ucfef.org/teachertribute.html>).
For now, the suggested donation per "Teacher Tribute" name is $10 - but we
would be happy to accept any amount of course - and we encourage you to
thank as many people who positively affect the life of your children as you
can.


We will make sure to post your tribute on this page for the year, and send
a note to the teacher(s) or staff that have been recognized, as well as to
their principals. As the project unfolds, we would like to turn these
Teacher Tributes into a Giving Tree Mosaic...but for now the Giving Tree
will remain on this *webpage* <http://www.ucfef.org/teachertribute.html>!
For now, the suggested donation per "Teacher Tribute" name is $10 - but we
