Seeking Nominations and Applications for the Empire State Excellence in Teaching Award
Every day, thousands of teachers across the State of New York are making a difference in the lives of children. These teachers hold high expectations and academic goals for each one of their students, fostering critical thinking, cultivating creativity, and instilling a love of learning. They are eager learners who pursue meaningful professional development throughout their careers.
This year, Governor Cuomo will award 60 teachers from across the state to receive the Empire State Excellence in Teaching Award. Awardees will receive a stipend of $5,000 for continued learning and professional development, and have the opportunity to directly advise education policy makers.
To apply for the award, or to nominate an exceptional teacher, visit: www.ny.gov/NYSTeachingExcellence.
The Valley Early Childhood School is still accepting students for its new three-year-old classroom.
Families of current three-year-olds (aged three as of December 1) are encouraged to enroll their children for the remainder of this year as a transition to the four-year-old program. Please contact Mrs. Buckley at 695-2636 for more information.
Even our buses shine with pride!
