Honor A Teacher & Staff Recognition Award

It's the perfect way to show your appreciation for teachers and staff.
Honor them while supporting the LSF!

The LSF Honor A Teacher & Staff program gives you the perfect opportunity to recognize teachers and staff members of your choice while supporting the Lincoln School Foundation. For a gift of $15, the LSF will award a certificate of appreciation to a special professional at the Lincoln or Hanscom schools. For $50, you may honor five individuals.  

Also now available, you may honor a Grade Teaching Team or Staff Team as a group for $50 or $100. This is a quick and easy way to say thanks to a Middle School Teaching team, the Administration Team, our team of Custodians, the LEAP After School Team, Transportation and Cafeteria Teams—you name it! 

At the same time, your HATS gift provides vital financial support that directly funds LSF grant initiatives.

Who can be honored?

In addition to your child's teachers and assistants, consider celebrating the hard work of teaching specialists (such as science, math, art, music, drama, wellness, literacy, and technology), librarians, office staff, nurses, custodians, METCO staff, LEAP, Lincoln Recreation Department—anyone associated with your child's school experience! All who work to enhance your child's learning experience are eligible.

How does it work?

Upon receipt of your HATS form, a HATS Recognition Award (personalized with your name and any specified message) will be sent directly to the teacher or team by the LSF.  

Frequently Asked Question...
