I just got a note from the room mom or DD's class asking or $50 from each parent in the class for the entire year for teacher appreciation at various points, Christmas, end of year, ect. It is for 2 teachers. Is this normal. It is $900 she would get. I know her and she lives in my neighborhood in a $500K+ house, so I am not super worried she would walk off with the money, but it just seems odd.
I gave DD's teachers last year $25 each for Christmas and EOY, so this will save me $50 in those two events alone, but seems sort of odd.
