Sign up to be a Staff Secret Pal


Our goal is to connect every faculty and staff member that wants to participate with a parent Secret Pal so that the great people who run our school and teach/coach/advise our students feel our love and appreciation.  If the teacher/staff member you hoped to adopt is already taken, PLEASE consider adopting one of the many teachers/support staff who provide special education, keep our school clean, run the front office, and coach our athletes.

We suggest the following: 

  • Your anonymous gifts to your pal(s) can be emailed or dropped off in the school office.
  • Be delivered as frequently as monthly but with a minimum of 4 times a year.
  • You be the judge on what you can spend on gifts. $50 over the course of the year is a suggested amount but some people spend more, while others do mostly homemade gifts, keeping costs to a minimum.

Once you adopt a Secret Pal, we will email you with details and information about your recipient’s like and dislikes to get started.  We will email gifting reminders only four times during the school year (November 1, January 10, March 6, and May 1). The May reminder will encourage you to reveal your identity with your last gift.


Thank you for your participation and making our O. Henry faculty and staff feel our appreciation! For questions and link on how you can sign up please contact Stephanie Jastrow.
