It is teacher appreciation week! Think “outside the mug” when you are considering how to thank your child’s educators. Are you looking for a gift that will make a difference to students in Pike Schools? Something a little more creative than a coffee mug? Make a donation to the PTEF in honor of your favorite Pike employee or volunteer! Your honoree will receive a note and a small gift and your donation will go to support K-12 classroom grants and scholarships for Pike seniors. Sign up online before Friday, May 17 to ensure delivery before the end of the school year.

Great gift idea for:
instructional assistants
parent volunteers
bus drivers
Loving Care staff
cafeteria staff
or anyone else who makes a difference in your child’s education!

In the comment section on the donation form, please let us know why you have nominated your honoree. We will share your comments with the educator. Your comments may also be shared online via Facebook and Twitter.

Each spring, the PTEF recognizes teachers for excellence in service to Pike Township Schools and its students through the Celebrations Teacher Awards Banquet. Guests are treated to a reception complete with door prizes. New grant recipients are announced, and PTEF honors an outstanding Pike teacher with the Champion Teacher Award. The PTEF also awards a check in recognition of the Teacher of the Year, a distinct honor given annually to a certified teacher who is nominated and selected by his or her peers.

NOTE: The Celebrations Teacher Awards Banquet is by invitation only.

Champion Teacher Award

Each year, the Pike Township Educational Foundation accepts letters of nomination for the “Champion Teacher.” These nominations come from students, parents, and Pike community members. The award winner must exemplify excellence in education by motivating and inspiring Pike students to exceed their goals. The Champion Teacher Award winner is presented with a special gift and a check at the annual Celebrations Teacher Awards Banquet.
