PORT HURON, Mich. — For its fifth consecutive year, Port Huron Schools launches its district-wide staff award campaign and is requesting nominations for Advocator, Innovator and Educator of the Year. Anyone in the Port Huron community can complete the brief nomination form on www.phasd.us (click for form) and specify the particular area of excellence for the individual they are recognizing.
Port Huron Schools Superintendent Jamie Cain encourages parents, students and fellow educators to nominate someone they feel is deserving of this accolade and who exhibits the best in our district’s mission actions.
The deadline for nominations is Tuesday, April 30. Winners will be surprised in their classrooms during national Teacher Appreciation Week in early May.
