Staff Recognition Nominations Due by March 31

It’s time for the Outstanding Educator award; we have the great opportunity to publicly recognize educators who make a difference for our special kids. The winner will receive an award and be recognized at an exclusive Washington State PTA dinner.

Do you know an educator who’s just smashing? Think of an individual ‐ a teacher, assistant, custodian, bus driver, administrator‐ who has gone beyond the normal expectations of their job to make the learning environment fun, beneficial, and challenging. Think of an individual who directly influences the success of our special needs students. This person is a worthy candidate, so please consider nominating them for Outstanding Educator award.
