Nonprofit/PSA | Teacher Tribute 2020 “We Think the World of You”: Honoring SCV Teachers from Home
Please join the Santa Clarita Valley Education Foundation and the superintendents from Castaic Union School District, Newhall School District, William S. Hart Union High School District, Saugus Union School District, and Sulphur Springs Union School District in honoring the 2020 Teachers of the Year. Our 36th Annual Teacher Tribute, originally scheduled for April 2020, had to be postponed.
Teacher Tribute 2020 “We Think the World of You”: Honoring SCV Teachers from Home is an annual event for the SCV Education Foundation. The 36th annual, originally scheduled for April 2020, had to be postponed. “We are extremely disappointed that we have been unable to honor these teachers in person, but we didn’t imagine that COVID would continue to affect us 8 months later and we didn’t want the year to end without recognizing their accomplishments”, says Jackie Hartmann, Executive Director.
Teacher Tribute honors one teacher from each of the 54 public schools who are selected by their peers and school administrators. A gala event is then held so their local coworkers and family can celebrate, too.
If you’d like to support the organization or to make a donation in honor of one of the Teachers of the Year can text “TeacherTribute” to 44-321 or visit the website at www.scveduactionfoundaiton.org.
“This year we have to do without the gala event but the wonderful thing about this virtual event is that all the honorees can invite their family and friends from anywhere in the world to join them “at” a virtual viewing party! They will be able to share the experience with others on Zoom or Google Meet”, says Hartmann.
Prior to the premier, all honorees will receive a catered meal, wine, cookies, a personalized award, printed program and tote. There is no cost for guests to join in the celebration. Premier Partners of the SCVEducation Foundation are helping to fund the cost of the tribute.
