Event description

Description

More than 100 community volunteers will deliver 6,500 apples donated by Schnucks and thank you cards to teachers in more than 170 Winnebago and Boone County Public and Non-Public Schools to thank them for the crucial work they do each day in the classroom. The Golden Delicious apples are a symbol of all that is good in education and Golden Apple Foundation takes this opportunity to invite the community to recognize the important commitment made by teachers.

“Apple Day” also marks the opening of nominations for the Golden Apple Teacher Recognition Award which celebrates and rewards excellent teachers. Parents, guardians, administrators, teachers and students are encouraged to nominate outstanding 6th through 12th grade teachers in Winnebago or Boone county schools. Pre-K-Fifth grade teachers will be recognized next year. Five Golden Apples will be presented to select teachers in March and excellence in education will be celebrated at the 23rd Annual Excellence in Education Banquet in April 2019.

Volunteers can pick up their apples and cards at the Schnucks at 6410 E State St., Rockford between 7 and 9 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018. Further instructions will be sent to volunteers via email.

For more information, contact Golden Apple Foundation Executive Director, Jennifer Stark, at (815) 226-4180 or jennifer@goldenappleofrockford.com.

Golden Apple Foundation inspires, celebrates and supports educational excellence in our community.
