The McKinney Education Foundation is offering two unique and exciting opportunities this holiday season for MISD students, staff and families to raise money for the non-profit organization– by attending a Dallas Stars hockey game, or acknowledging a MISD Teacher or staff member with the gift of a gold star.
MEF has partnered with NHL hockey team, the Dallas Stars, for MISD Night during the Thanksgiving break on November 26, 2013. The puck drops at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, November 26th and tickets are just $15 if purchased online between now and noon on November 25th.
The S.T.A.R Award (Staff, Teacher Appreciation and Recognition) was created to recognize outstanding MISD teachers and staff. For a tax-deductible donation of just $20, MEF will present a certificate from you or your student to your special teacher telling them why you chose to honor them. Attached is a golden star pin for them to wear on his or her MISD badge proclaiming to all that they are pretty terrific. The S.T.A.R. award makes for a great holiday gift, but is also available year-round for birthdays, Valentine’s Day, or Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6-10, 2014).
Proceeds from both the Dallas Stars tickets and the S.T.A.R. Award benefit the McKinney Education Foundation, a non-profit organization serving MISD in four core areas: classroom grants, professional development grants, scholarships for graduating seniors and by placing college advisors on each high school campus.
