Happy New Year and welcome back Thoreau families from what we hope were lovely holidays spent with family and friends. Now that we are in a new year with renewed energies we would like to invite any of you who have not given yet to the Annual Appeal to consider doing so now. Last year we had 38% participation among Thoreau families. This year we hope to reach our goal of 50% participation and we are on our way – no amount is too small. Your contributions are tax deductible and go 100% to supporting your child’s Thoreau School experience. If your employer offers a matching gift program, please take advantage of it to match your contribution. You can either send in your check made out to “Thoreau PTG” with “Annual Appeal” in the memo and mail it to Thoreau School, 29 Prairie Street, Concord, MA, or drop it off in the PTG box inside the school office. You may also go online using PayPal on www.Thoreauptg.com and click on donate. Thank you so much for your support.
