WPSF "HATS OFF" Winter Campaign
Runs through December 16

Looking for a simple way to acknowledge a special teacher or staff member?

For nearly 30 years, the Wayland Public Schools Foundation (WPSF) has supported teachers by funding classroom innovations and creative units of study not covered by the regular school budget. Making a donation to the Wayland Public Schools Foundation is a perfect way to say “Thank You!” to that special teacher or staff member.

The WPSF encourages the ordering of HATS Off certificates through their website at www.waylandpublicschoolsfoundation.org. Certificate forms are also available for download and can be mailed to P.O. Box 97, Wayland, MA 01778, along with a check made payable to the Wayland Public Schools Foundation. Donations qualify for matching gifts at participating companies.

A personalized certificate will be sent to the faculty member of your choice. The donation amount will not be disclosed. The deadline for HATS Off donations is Wednesday, December 16th.

Questions? Contact Jane Chitkara at jchitkara@comcast.net or Amy Sullivan at amy_sul@comcast.net.
