Event description
Area volunteers will deliver delicious apples donated by Schnucks & thank you's to teachers in more than 120 schools in Boone & Winnebago Co

About this event

Community volunteers will deliver thousands of delicious apples donated by Schnucks plus thank you cards to teachers in more than 120 Winnebago and Boone County Public and Non-Public Schools to thank them for the crucial work they do each day in the classroom. The apples are a symbol of all that is good in education. Golden Apple Foundation takes this opportunity to invite the community to recognize the important commitment made by teachers. Volunteers entering schools must be masked and have received the COVID-19 vaccine(s).

“Apple for the Teacher 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-12th grade teachers in Winnebago or Boone county schools. PreK-5th 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 Excellence in Education Banquet in April 2022.

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. 16, 2021. 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.
