I work at a small district. Our District Administrator came in to each classroom today and delivered a Christmas notice to us. Every employee is receiving an extra $1,000 in our paycheck tomorrow! It certainly boosted our holiday spirits. One of our assistants is in her early 60’s. She has custody of her 3 grand children. (5th, 2nd and preschooler I think) she works 2 jobs. After we found out about the bonus money, she said she was going to treat herself to a day off. ❤️

What an appreciative district. As to your aide, I am glad she is going to take care of herself.

I've never heard of a Christmas bonus for teachers! Congratulations, and enjoy your windfall!

About 10-12 years ago, our district budgeted so well that we were given a $2000 Christmas bonus. About 5 years ago, they doubled our paycheck. We are grateful.

That is so nice to be appreciated in that way! When I 1st started teaching, our P brought by Christmas cards with 5 dollar bills inside. Not joking!
Then 1 x I worked for a big agency that gave us an unexpected bonus like that and was really happily surprised.
For many years though, all we get is an email from a Super that doesn't know us that wishes us a Merry Christmas. I hit delete so quickly this yr because my inbox is already too full.
It is good to know some places value their teachers.
