Teacher Appreciation Breakfast - May 5th
The school is the heart of our community, within the school you will find hard working teachers who chose a degree in teaching because they love the profession. Teachers create master pieces, they encourage our students to dream.
There are not enough words to express our appreciation for all the timeless hours they spend with our students; teaching, developing, coaching and counseling. It takes a village to raise a child and an outstanding teacher to plant the seed of possibilities. The PTSA thanks you for making Annandale a GREAT School and safe haven for our students.
Act Now to Recognize Outstanding Faculty and Staff
Please help us celebrate and recognize Annandale High School staff. Every year Fairfax County Public Schools recognizes outstanding employees at all levels. This year, all schools in FCPS will nominate an Outstanding Teacher, whose name will then go onto the pyramid level where a Pyramid Outstanding Teacher will be selected. Each of the five regions will select their Region Outstanding Teacher, who will serve as the finalist for the coveted Fairfax County Public Schools Outstanding Teacher Award.
Schools will also select an outstanding New Teacher (a teacher within his or her first three years of teaching) and have the option of submitting nominees for the other school-based award categories: Outstanding Principal, Outstanding New Principal, Outstanding Leader, Outstanding Support Employee, and Outstanding Hourly Employee.
Please help us gather names for this process click here to nominate in the categories of Teacher of the Year, Leader of the Year, and Support Employee of the Year. Please include a brief description regarding why you chose to nominate that individual for each category. Nominations are due by January 12, 2017.
We are excited that we can recognize so many outstanding employees across the county. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Monica Bentley.
Do YOU Know a Super Teacher?
As we celebrate TEN years of the Virginia Lottery Super Teacher Awards, we hope you will tell us about those super teachers in your lives!
Does your child's teacher go above and beyond classroom duty to inspire students? Does she lead them to new understanding and knowledge breakthroughs? Does he motivate them to reach higher and achieve their potential? Answering "yes" to any of these questions means your child may know the most amazing of all super heroes - a Virginia Lottery Super Teacher.
Help us identify and recognize these education heroes!
Between now and February 13, 2017, nominate your child's Super Teacher at www.vasuperteacher.com.
Out of the nominees, eight Virginia educators will be selected in 2017 as Super Teachers, winning $2,000 from the Virginia Lottery and $2,000 in classroom supplies from The Supply Room Companies.
Let's show our outstanding teachers how super-thankful we are for their hard work. Nominate a Super Teacher today! Thanks to the Virginia PTA for its tenth year of partnership and for helping us to honor 72 incredible educators.
