Honor Thy Teacher Program, 2016

May 4-8 is Teacher Appreciation Week, a time when the hard work of teachers across the country is celebrated. However, every day of the school year, your children have benefitted from the exceptional Billerica teachers, administrators and staff to motivate, educate and inspire them to be the best they can be.

Please support their efforts and honor their dedication to our children by donating to the Fifth Annual “Honor Thy Teacher” Campaign. Proceeds from this campaign will go directly to support the innovative grant program sponsored by the Billerica Partners for Education (BPE).

Over the last several years, the Partners have given over $240,000 to teachers in the Billerica Public Schools through competitive grants. These grants directly benefit Billerica’s children with innovative programs spanning math, science, history, geography, and the arts—programs that would not, under normal circumstances, be funded through the operating budget.

The suggested donation is $10 for each teacher or staff member, such as administrators, secretaries or custodians that you would like to honor. The deadline for “Honor Thy Teacher” is Wednesday, April 27, 2016.

Honor Thy Teacher Program

We will celebrate the honored Billerica Public Schools teachers, administrators and staff by:

  • Providing honored teachers and staff with a certificate
  • Listing all honored teachers and staff in the Billerica Minuteman
  • Sharing honoree names with the Superintendent and Principals as well as the Billerica School Committee
  • Ensuring that your donation goes directly to support the innovative grant program sponsored by the BPE
  • Holding a ceremony to be held at the Annual Billerica Partners for Education Meeting on May 4, 2016.

The Billerica Partner’s for Education is a non-profit organization that raises funds to enhance the quality of education in Billerica’s public schools.

10 Day Countdown to the 4th Annual Turkey Trot and Tot Trot for Education

The Billerica Partners for Education 4th Annual 5K Turkey Trot for Education is only 10 days away! On Sunday, November 15, hundreds of walkers, tot trotters and runners will gather at the Marshall Middle School for an exciting morning of healthy activity and spirited competition while supporting the Billerica Partners for Education Innovative Grants program.

In order to receive a free Turkey Trot tee-shirt, your application must be submitted online by midnight on Monday, November 9. Mail-in registrations must be postmarked by November 9 to be eligible for the free tee-shirt. Don’t miss out on guaranteeing an exciting Turkey Trot tee-shirt by missing the November 9 deadline! This year’s color was chosen by last year’s runners and we love it. Registrations without a tee shirt will still be accepted all the way up until the start of the race.

Beginning at 10:00 a.m., children ages 11 and under can participate in the Tot Trot. This event is FREE, and the first 200 tot trotters to be registered online by November 9 will receive a free tee shirt! The Tot Trot consists of three heats: one lap, two laps or four laps around the Marshall Middle School field.

You can register online at http://billerica.racewire.com, mail the registration in, or leave it in the main office of your child’s school.
