Upcoming Faculty/Staff Appreciation Event

It’s Faculty/Staff Appreciation time!
This year on Friday, April 21st, 2017, Parents for Cushing will continue a wonderful Cushing tradition honoring faculty and staff members who influence the daily lives of our students! With winter holding on so long this year, we thought a Bring on Spring theme might be just the remedy for these winter doldrums!!
Parents for Cushing will be setting up a raffle and dessert display for the faculty and staff during lunchtime and will randomly pull names for the prizes we receive to raffle.  Would you like to donate an item that you think a teacher/staff member would enjoy? Past prizes that got excitement were movie tix, area restaurant certificates, chain restaurant/coffee/iTunes/Amazon gift cards, tech items, themed ideas, gift baskets, etc.  
With the date for this event changed from mid-February to April 21st, Spring Break got in our way and we have a quick turnaround needed for your participation:) LeeAnn and I have a plan for a wonderful event highlighting our Bring on Spring theme.  Whoopee It’s Spring!  will feature various flavors of whoopie pies and our decor will feature multicolored tulips with some small potted plants for distribution to the faculty/staff.
  • Could you help by contributing an item for the staff/faculty raffle and/or a dessert/treat for our dessert display? Some parents send in a dessert that is a favorite for their family, others have a favorite item from a bakery that they want to include. It doesn’t have to be a whoopie pie….variety is good! Please contact Kim Samson at kimsamson@comcast.net or LeeAnn Fital at fital@comcast.net
  • Are you interested in participating, but don’t live in close proximity to the school? We’d be glad to order or purchase something on your behalf. You can donate* online at cushing.org/give or send your donation to Karen Lemieux in the Development Office at Cushing and be sure to put Faculty/Staff Appreciation in the memo. Mail to: Cushing Academy / Attn: Karen Lemieux / Development Ofice / Parents for Cushing / 39 School Street / Ashburnham, MA 01430
*Your donation of cash or items may be tax-deductible, as allowed by law. Please refer to IRS Publication 526 or consult with your tax professional, for information.  

  • Are you available to help on Faculty/Staff Appreciation Day to set up and host the event? Could you help with prep before the event? Please contact Kim Samson at kimsamson@comcast.net or LeeAnn Fital at fital@comcast.net
We hope you will consider getting involved with this event so that we are able to make it one of the best yet! The faculty and staff are what make Cushing so special!
Thanks in advance for your consideration.
