Volunteer Appreciation 2016 – 2017
The Eastern Townships School Board (ETSB) and the ETSB Parents Committee are pleased to announce that they are inviting nominations for the 2016-2017 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 we realize that most schools encourage and recognize the valuable contribution that volunteers make within our schools, we 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 chosen by the Parents Committee and recognized as our recipients of the 2016-2017 Volunteer of the Year Appreciation Award.
Any parent, school staff member or principal within our school board may nominate as many candidates for this award as they wish. 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 by March 24th 2017. 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 one nominee per school, and individuals not nominated in the past. Nominees selected by the Parent Committee will be invited to a Gala event to be held in Magog, 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 of the Year Appreciation Award.
