e-Connections Post

Would your student like to recognize an inspiring teacher? Here is your opportunity!

The Sacramento City Unified School District is once again partnering with the Sacramento Unified Education Foundation to host the second annual Teacher Appreciation Gala Awards. The “TAG” awards ceremony will be held at the Memorial Auditorium on Thursday, May 31st, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Click here to download a flyer.

Between now and May 11th, students can nominate their favorite teachers to be recognized at the gala. Click here to download a nomination form and instructions. In order for a teacher to be considered for recognition, a nomination form must be filled out by a current student and delivered to the front office of their school before the end of the school day on May 11th. Only nomination forms of students who are currently pupils of the nominated teacher will be accepted (students cannot nominate a former teacher).

This event is a red carpet gala to recognize our district’s most inspiring teachers. Community members who would like to attend can purchase tickets and there will be sponsorship opportunities as well. All proceeds from the event will go toward the Sacramento Education Foundation, which partners with the district to fund activities and programs for our students. One teacher from every school in the district will be recognized at the event from the pool of nominations submitted. Of those teachers nominated, seven will be selected as “Most Inspiring”. The Most Inspiring teachers will be profiled at the event and receive extra special recognition for their contributions to our students. 

We look forward to many students nominating their favorite teachers to be recognized at this event! For more details about the teacher appreciation gala, click here to download a flyer or visit the Sacramento Education Foundation website to learn more and purchase tickets
