Gratitude Day

A New Post Oak Tradition

This year we say thanks to all who have given volunteer hours, helping hands, or a gift to the Post Oak Fund by inaugurating Gratitude Day on Friday, November 20, 2020.

A day of thanks, Gratitude Day is also a moment to usher in the holiday season. Many of us will create new traditions this year and connect with our family and friends from a distance. Gratitude Day is an opportunity to acknowledge the important role our loved ones play in our lives, something often expressed around a Thanksgiving table.

Give Kudos!

Do you have even more gratitude to share? Maybe a kind word to pass along to a teacher, or a ‘thank you’ to another parent? Please share your notes on our Gratitude Day Kudoboard!

This will remain open through the week of Thanksgiving. We hope you will get in there and share some love and thanks!

Sending Gratitude

All in-person students have been given a set of two Gratitude Day postcards, and all distance learners were mailed a postcard packet. The cards are blank on the back for a drawing or message.

We encourage students to personalize these and send to grandparents, distant relatives, friends or anyone else to whom they would like to express gratitude.
Once a recipient's address and message or drawing is added, these pre-stamped cards are ready to drop in the mail. 

If you want, please snap a photo of your student dropping their postcards in the mail to share on your own social media and/or to send to us at We’d love to post your snapshots of gratitude in action!

Huge thanks to our Annual Fund Class Captains!


We appreciate your support, energy, partnership and creativity. We are grateful to you!
