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.
