Our St. Francis Xavier Teachers are amazing. If you were in the building during the week, you know that teachers arrive long before students do - often at 6:45am - and stay until 4:00, 5:00 and even 6pm. Many times you could walk down the halls and see the teacher's face by the glow of a computer screen because the motion senser classroom lights have long turned off on them.
They care deeply about their students and work for less pay than their public school counterparts. We want to be able to give them as much resource for their classroom as possible so they don't spend out of their own pocket on things like art supplies, manipulatives, software, classroom organization items, copy paper and the like.
Please consider donating to this Paddle Raise "For the Teachers!"
If we raise $5,000, the Principal has promised the students and faculty that they could wear Spirit Dress for a whole week!
Every bid matters. :)
