Honor Thy Educator!

Say “Thanks” to a favorite Canton educator!

Everyone appreciates a pat on the back, especially those who work in our public schools. Say thanks to a great educator by making a donation in his or her name to CAPE’s (the Canton Alliance for Public Education’s) annual Honor Thy Teacher Campaign.  Donations go towards providing grants to fund innovative enrichment programs in the Canton Public School system. Donations in any amount are welcome. Honorees receive a handwritten card notifying them that a gift has been made in their name.  The campaign runs until the end of the school year. Donor forms are available on CAPE’s website:
