Staff Holiday Gifts 2022

As your room parent has probably already made you aware, as a community we have committed to a more equitable way of providing holiday gifts for the entire Tubman staff. After much discussion and surveying of other nearby schools, we felt it was a great way to make sure the entire staff felt the love and appreciation this year. With that said, we are excited to announce that we are starting our first Tubman Staff Holiday Gift Fund.

All monies collected will be equally distributed to all 70 teachers and staff members at Tubman as a community gift. Please join us in celebrating and recognizing the hard work being done by all Tubman staff members by giving any amount you can. FOT will accept contributions from December 2--December 16th.

Ways to Contribute:

  • Donate online via THIS LINK:
  • Drop off an envelope with cash/check labeled “Tubman Staff Holiday Gift Donation” in the office to Ms. Gordon by no later than December 16. Checks should be made out to Friends of Tubman.

We recognize that some classrooms may feel they should do additional holiday money collecting for classroom gifts. We know how wonderful our Tubman teachers/staff are and we understand the desire to make them feel special but we cannot stress enough how much this derails the sense of community we are aiming for within the school. Every staff member in the building supports our students to learn and grow. If you would like to give a staff member a personal and separate gift solely from your family, we completely understand and respect your decision to do so.

FOT will distribute the staff gifts before winter break. No gift is too small! We thank you for your generosity and for appreciating this amazing staff we are lucky to have working with our students day in and out.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to

Thank You for a Wonderful Winterland Wishes!
