Deadline extended to March 10 for nominations for Outstanding Employees, Educators

The deadline has been extended to March 10 for nominees for the 2022-2023 Outstanding Educator/Employee Awards.

If you know of a teacher or other staff member who goes out of his or her way to help students and support our schools, consider nominating her/him for an Outstanding Educator/Employee Award. Nominees will be accepted online only here. Use one form for each nominee.

The school district will present the 2022-2023 awards for Outstanding Elementary Educator, Outstanding Secondary Educator and Outstanding Employee later this year. Nominations can be submitted by parents/guardians, students and colleagues of Penn Manor staff members.

Please note that honorees from previous years are not eligible this year. Here is the list of past winners.

Here are an explanation of the awards and nomination guidelines.

The Outstanding Educator Awards should be based on a teacher’s ability to promote academic growth in his/her students and for outstanding pupil-teacher relationships.  A person may nominate one elementary teacher, one secondary teacher or one teacher on each level.  The nominee must currently be employed by Penn Manor School District.

Outstanding Employee Awards should be based on a staff member’s ability to support the educational program and the quality of his/her relationships with staff and students.  A person may nominate one elementary staff member, one secondary staff member or one employee on each level.  The nominee must currently be employed by Penn Manor.

Last year’s honorees were Chip Froelich, the school district’s delivery driver; Wendy Letavic, Penn Manor’s English Learning Development Specialist; and Jenna Fisher, former physical education teacher at Pequea Elementary, who is now an assistant principal at the high school.

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge the hard work of our employees!
