Recognize a Volunteer! Golden Acorn Nominations now open!

It’s not often that we get to formally recognize volunteers!  Now is your chance!

Each year the PTA participates in a Washington State PTA Awards program called the “Golden Acorn”.  The Golden Acorn is a way for the PTA to recognize outstanding volunteers in our school.  Who should be nominated?  The choices are many!  The mom you see updating bulletin boards outside classrooms.  The dad that is reading in the hallway with kids.  The volunteer that coordinates major PTA activities.  The parent that copies, copies, and copies some more for their child’s teacher.  The PTA board member that helps to move our PTA programs forward.  The parent that pops popcorn, rings up sales at the book fair, or helps with ceramics!

Whether front and center or behind the scenes, our school runs largely on the work and passion of our parent volunteers.  Please take a moment to think about those volunteers that have given so much to our school this year, and fill out our super quick and easy nomination form! It will only take a few minutes of your time!

Two winners will be selected and announced at our Volunteer Assembly on June 3rd.  The recipients receive a small token of appreciation from the PTA, and a donation is made to a scholarship fund with the Washington State PTA, in the recipient’s name.

We hope that you will consider nominating someone that you are proud to work with here at Crescent Heights!  Completed nomination forms can be returned to your child’s teacher or to the school office by May 6th.
