Do you know a teacher at LASD who goes above and beyond their teaching in the classroom?  Do you know a support staff person at LASD who performs their duties over what is expected?  If so, PICK UP A NOMINATION FORM AND NOMINATE, NOMINATE, NOMINATE!!!

We are very excited to continue the fourth year of Teacher and Support Staff of the Year Award Program in our District!  As we push for excellence and strive for continuous improvement, we realize many employees are putting forth extra effort into their assignments.  This being said, we would like to recognize outstanding staff performance on an annual basis.

This recognition program has been such a huge success in past years so we are continuing the program to include five awards as follows:  Elementary Level Teacher Award (Grades K-4), Middle Level Teacher Award (Grades 5-8), High School Level Teacher Award (Grades 9-12), and two Support Staff Employee Awards.

A committee comprised of Teachers, Administrators, LEA Representatives, and a School Board Member will select the winning recipients from nominations received.

Each winning recipient will receive a picture plaque which will be presented to them during the Opening Ceremony in August 2017.  The plaque will be displayed in the employees' building during the school year following the presentation and then given to the recipient to keep at the completion of the school year when another winner will be chosen.  In addition, there will be a News Release and picture published in the District Newsletter and local papers.

Nominations are open NOW until May 12, 2017.  Community members, parents/guardians, students, teachers, co-workers, administrators, and members of the School Board of Directors may nominate staff members for this award.  Nomination Forms can be picked up in any of the school buildings’ front office or printed from our website at NOMINATION FORM.  Complete the form and submit it to the Superintendent’s Office at 162 Newark Street, Littlestown, PA  17340 in a sealed envelope. 

Any questions on this program can be directed to Beverly Lang at langb@lasd.k12.pa.us or at 717-359-4146 x1250.

Deadline for nominations is May 12, 2017.
