Education Foundation Thank a Teacher Program
As part of Teacher Appreciation Week in May, the Education Foundation is excited to announce its second annual "Thank a Teacher" program. We invite you to take this opportunity to honor your child's teacher(s) in a unique way by making a tax-deductible donation to the Weld RE-4 Educational Foundation, a 501c(3) nonprofit organization founded last year for the purpose of filling the ever increasing needs within our schools. Funds raised by this program will be used to provide small teacher grants and support other classroom needs, in furtherance of our mission (please see attachment). Last year the foundation raised close to $2,000.00 for our schools through this program!
To participate in the Thank-A-Teacher program and for further details, please see FOUNDATION
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
P.S. Please save the date for our Flip Flop Gala at the Island in Water Valley on August 29th!

This will affect current 8th – 12th grade students for next year.
If your child has had both doses of the varicella vaccine, he/she is compliant.
If not, please plan to have your child’s immunizations updated as soon as possible and bring in or send a copy to school before the first day of school in August. This copy must be from your doctor’s office or Health Department.
