Do you know a teacher, administrator or classified staff person who goes above and beyond to create a positive learning environment and help kids achieve their dreams? Honor them by nominating them for a Crystal Apple Award. The annual event is set for Thursday, Nov. 14, at Salem’s Historic Elsinore Theatre.

Salem-Keizer Education Foundation, along with Salem-Keizer Public Schools and the Salem and Keizer Chambers of Commerce, present the awards each year to deserving education professionals who go the extra mile in providing safe and positive learning opportunities for our students.

Nominations forms can be found at any school in the district or on the Salem-Keizer Education Foundation website (www.skeducationfoundation.org). 

District nominees must have been employed by Salem-Keizer Public Schools for at least three years prior to the current school year.

All nominations must be received by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 17.

The 2019 celebration will again feature a red-carpet entrance for nominees.
