Golden Apple Foundation honors teachers on ‘An Apple for the Teacher Day’
From press release
Golden Apple Foundation held its
An Apple for the Teacher Day
on Thursday, Sept. 17. More than 100 community volunteers visited more than 150 public and non-public schools in Winnebago and Boone counties, with enough Golden Delicious apples to thank each teacher for another year of important work with our children.
Apple Day also marked the opening of Golden Apple Award nominations for Pre-K-5th grade teachers. Schools with Pre-K-5th grade teachers received nomination forms on this date. Copies of the forms are available at www.goldenappleofrockfird.com. Nomination forms are also available at a number of community sites.
Nominations are open from Sept. 17-Oct. 23, 2009. Golden Apple nominees will be notified by Nov. 3, 2009, and a reception will be held in honor of all nominees from 4:30-6 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2009, at the Radisson Hotel. School administrators are asked to mark your calendars and plan to attend with the nominated teachers from your school. Pre-K-5th grade teachers in Winnebago and Boone counties public and ISBE-recognized non-public schools will be eligible to apply for the Golden Apple Award this year following their nomination.
Golden Apple Foundation asks you to help them recognize and support excellence in education in Winnebago and Boone counties by encouraging nominations and by nominating a deserving teacher in your school.
