2017-2018 PTSA AWARDS

GOLDEN ACORN, OUTSTANDING EDUCATOR, AND

OUTSTANDING ADVOCATE

The Grand Ridge PTSA Annually Recognizes volunteers, educators and community members who go above and beyond for the sake of our kids through the Golden Acorn, Outstanding Educator, and Outstanding Advocate awards for the previous year (January 2017-December 2017).  Please take a moment to recognize the extraordinary teachers, volunteers and advocates in our community by submitting a nomination.

Our PTSA gives Golden Acorn Awards to people who have given exemplary volunteer service to children and youth in our school and community. The Golden Acorn Award is very special and is given for continued and dedicated service.

The Outstanding Educator Award was created by the PTSA to recognize individuals who have provided outstanding educational opportunities for children and youth that are beyond the normal scope of their jobs. An educator can be, but is not limited to, a teacher and can include specialists, support staff, administrators, or community members.

The Outstanding Advocate Award honors an individual for a demonstrated commitment to helping create strong policies relating to the health, welfare, safety, and education of our children. Volunteers who speak up for students, or who try to change things for the benefit of children are considered advocates. Nominees for this award could be a general or specialist teacher, an assistant, administrator, other school or district staff, or a community member.

We invite any parents, staff, student or community member to make a nomination. The process is simple: click on the corresponding link below, fill it out, and submit it electronically.
