As in years past, the PTA organized a holiday collection for Peabody teachers, support staff, specials teachers and other personnel.

This year we are organizing grade-level collections to be evenly divided among the four grade-level teachers and aides, as well as a single collection to be divided among Specials Teachers, support staff and other personnel.

This collection effort is completely voluntary and anonymous. There is also no minimum contribution. When donating, please select “Friends and Family” option so there are no fees.

If you are interested in contributing, you may do so at the links below. If you have any questions about the grade-level collections, such as an alternate way to contribute, please contact your Room Parent. A list of room parents is available here.

If you would like to contribute to the gift for Specials Teachers, Social Workers, Psychologists, Aides, Instructional Coaches, Custodians, Front Office Staff, and Security, you may do so here https://paypal.me/pools/c/8vasyPMsMg. If you do not have PayPal, but would like to use another means of contributing to the general school fund, please email smekeane@gmail.com. 

All donations must be made by 8:00 PM on December 20.

Lastly, if you would like to show your gratitude and appreciation to your teacher or other school staff through other means, you may coordinate with your teacher directly or drop off your card/gift at Watkins and front office staff will hold onto it for your teacher. It is recommended you contact the teacher/staff member to let them know that something is waiting for them at the school because they are not reporting to the building regularly. 

Thank you for helping to ensure our Watkins Teachers and Staff feel our love and appreciation this holiday season. Happy Holidays!
