This is the time of year you often hear parents asking each other, “What are you giving the teachers”?

Southborough Education Foundation is hoping your answer will be “An apple”.

The SEF is holding it’s semi-annual fundraising drive: Red Apple Awards. The donations help support grants given out to the schools each year for teacher-driven, innovative learning initiatives.

A Red Apple donation to SEF can be made in the name of any teacher(s) or staff member(s) of the Southborough public schools or Algonquin Regional High School.

To ensure certificates are delivered before Christmas break, please get your donation forms in by December 18th.

Here are the details from SEF:

Give Teachers the Best Gift…Recognition

The contributions collected fund grants through the Southborough Education Foundation, providing our children innovative learning initiatives outside of the standard curriculum.
