CFA Staff Gift Policy

Gifts for classroom teachers have always been and continue to be a wonderful way to show appreciation for the dedication, hard work, and caring our teachers demonstrate each day.

Though created with the best of intentions, “class gift” solicitations made through the Family Partnership or any of its representatives, including Classroom/Grade Parents, can unintentionally make families feel obligated to give. To alleviate this feeling, Classroom/Grade Parents should not seek out contributions to group gifts. Instead, families are welcome to express their thanks through words of encouragement, notes of appreciation, or gifts of their choice. If parents collaborate to create a combined gift, one that is not associated formally with the school, that is fine as well. This way, each family can join in or opt out as they see fit.

If a class is considering a gift to the school or a teacher that is intended to be placed on the school grounds, the Division of Advancement in conjunction with the Board’s Facilities Committee should be given the opportunity to review these plans to assure that they adhere with the overall campus plan.
