R-S PTO Presents: School Staff Monthly Recognition Program

Let's recognize teachers, staff and administrators who demonstrate dedication, professionalism, excellence and FUN in the classroom! Anyone can nominate anyone – a student can nominate a teacher, a teacher can nominate a bus driver, a parent can nominate a member of the lunch staff, etc. There are NO SMALL gestures that shouldn't go noticed. Each month, a winner will be drawn from each school to receive a gift card to a local place of their choosing provided by the RS PTO. Nominations are due by the end of each month for that month’s drawing. Please see the linked form for more information and to submit your nomination! NOMINATION FORM
