Teachers First Breakfast and Roses Fundraiser

April 24 - April 26, 2024

20th Annual Breakfast and Roses

Breakfast and RosesHonoring ALL teachers and staff with a gift of appreciation and funds to support our teachers!

Your gift to the PSF Teachers First Breakfast and Roses fundraiser gives in two ways…

  • A rose and a meal delivered to every teacher and staff member to acknowledge and thank them for all they do to support our children
  • An opportunity for you to honor teachers or other staff by donating to the Teachers First fund in their name and sending them a personalized note (they love receiving your notes!) The Teachers First fund supports PSF teacher programming including grants,  professional development opportunities, and awards for excellence. (Read more below about PSF teacher program funds.)


Your gift helps provide vital programs for our teachers, including:

  • Awards honoring excellent teachers & staff  ($45,000 to over 90 staff members awarded annually)
  • Classroom Grants for Student Enrichment (approximately $40,000 awarded each year)
  • Support for the Teacher Supply Store (over 600 teachers attend and receive $75 worth of supplies)
  • Professional Development Grants ($25,000 per year)
  • Grants to Novice Teachers (All first year teachers receive $200 grant)
  • Grants for National Board Certification (over $15,000 in assistance last year for teachers and nurses)
  • Grants for Teachers selected to present at Conferences ($375-$750 per grant)
  • And many more ways to support & retain teachers in our district

Your donation makes a big difference for every teacher at every school. The meal has been sponsored by the Chapel Hill Restaurant Group at Squid’s Restaurant since 2004 and has raised over $1M in funding to support teacher programs.

This year, PSF will deliver a rose and lunch – changed from a breakfast to better accommodate more schedules –  to every staff member including teachers, support staff, janitors, bus drivers, and cafeteria staff! All of these individuals contribute to our children’s education. Your donation in their honor, a rose, and lunch show your gratitude for all they do. We encourage you to personalize your donation with a note. Teachers will be be notified of your gift in their honor and receive your messages of gratitude.
