Volunteer Recognition

Volunteer Appreciation 2015 – 2016

The Parents Committee of the Eastern Townships School Board (ETSB) is pleased to announce that it is inviting nominations for the 2015-2016 Volunteer Appreciation Awards. This initiative has been a great success and has received very positive feedback; therefore we are looking forward to celebrating this school year’s volunteers.

While the committee knows that most schools encourage and recognize the valuable contribution that volunteers make within our schools, we, in collaboration with the School Board, wish to hold this annual event where we recognize special volunteers from each school within the Board. In addition, two of these outstanding volunteers, one from the elementary schools and one from the secondary schools, will be recognized as our recipients of the 2015-2016 Volunteer Appreciation Award.

Any parent, school staff member or principal within our school board may nominate candidates for this award. You cannot nominate a family member. The candidate must be a volunteer within the school system, and cannot be a paid employee of the ETSB. Candidates must be nominated on the official nomination form, which must be completed and handed into the school Principal no later than March 18th 2016. The Principal will then forward all nominations to Sharon Priest at the board office.

The nominations will be reviewed and selected by the Parents Committee. Selection will give preference to individuals not nominated in the past. Nominees selected by the Parent Committee will be invited to an event hosted by the Eastern Townships School Board. Two outstanding volunteers will also be chosen, one from the elementary and one from the secondary schools, to be recognized with our Annual Volunteer Appreciation Award.
