Honor A Teacher!

The Honor a Teacher Program is a great way to say “Thank You” to those teachers and/or other TCPS staff who have a positive impact on students’ education and school experience. It is an opportunity to recognize teachers who dedicate their lives to building young minds. They spend weekends writing lesson plans, stay late after school to run extracurricular clubs, and always have another essay to grade. Their energy and commitment to their students’ success reminds all of us that not all heroes wear capes.

When you make an Honor A Teacher gift, you will help support the innovative and exciting programs funded through the Education Foundation grants program. Your honoree will receive a special certificate, along with recognition on TCPS social media and websites.

All gift amounts are confidential and never disclosed to the honoree (a minimum $10 gift is requested). It’s easy, just click the link below, complete the form and click "submit"

PLEASE NOTE: YOU WILL BE REDIRECTED TO THE MID-SHORE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION (MSCF) PAGE TO MAKE YOUR GIFT ON-LINE OR FOR INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING YOUR GIFT BY MAIL (All TCPS Education Foundation Funds are held by MSCF). Please indicate that your gift is designated for the TCPS Education Foundation funds.
