Christmas giftsGIFTS OF APPRECIATION……. Are you wondering what gift to get your child’s teacher or bus driver for Christmas this year? As we all know, Christmas is a great time to recognize those special people – teachers, coaches, counselors, bus drivers, and other staff members – who are a positive influence in your child’s life and school experience.  One way to show your appreciation is by making a donation in their name to the Hudsonville Education Foundation.  It’s a gift that keeps on giving!  Please see the attached donation form (or pick one up at your child’s school) for more information and directions for making your gift.  Gifts of Appr-Dec2013
