Teacher Appreciation Fund
With the Holiday season underway, we hope you will consider making a contribution to the SLC Teacher Appreciation Fund (TAF).  The TAF was created years ago by the Governing Board on behalf of all SLC families as an anonymous and streamlined way to say “thank you” to our teachers.  The TAF fund will provide Holiday and Year-End bonuses for the staff, as well as help offset the cost for a luncheon in the Spring. You can learn more, and make a contribution by clicking the link below.
