Thank a teacher or staff member with a Green Apple

All Green Apple donations will directly support District 58 students

It's a busy time of year. American Education Week takes place Nov. 18-22, followed quickly by Thanksgiving. In the spirit of the season, the Education Foundation of Downers Grove District 58 invites families to give thanks to a special teacher or staff member with a donation to its Green Apple Teacher/Staff Recognition Program.

With each donation you make, the Education Foundation will send a specially-designed Green Apple Award card to the teacher or staff member you are honoring, with a custom message from you. All cards are hand delivered by Superintendent Dr. Kevin Russell or the school principal, pending staff availability and classroom schedule.

All donations will support the Education Foundation's programs, which include the Teacher Grants Program, Distinguished Service Awards, Select 58, Sneak Preview, New Teacher Luncheon, The Reading Games and more.

Green Apple donations and messages may be submitted online at http://www.58foundation.org/green–apple-awards through a two-step process. First, fill out a form with a personal message. Then, click the chalkboard graphic on the page to make the Green Apple donation. All donations are tax-deductible. Please send questions to [email protected]. While the Green Apple Program is open year-round, if you would like your Green Apple Award to be hand-delivered before winter break, please submit your donation by Friday, Dec. 13.

Thank you for supporting the District 58 Education Foundation.

American Education Week annually encourages Americans to celebrate public education and the most influential teachers and staff members in their children's lives. Please consider celebrating this special week with a Green Apple Award for a favorite teacher or staff member.
