Exceptional Volunteer Nomination

Each year our district recognizes exceptional volunteers at a dinner in April.  The award recognizes volunteers of the Cherry Creek School District for their dedication to our students, faculty, and community.  Please consider all volunteers supporting our school. Each school will select one honoree to be recognized at the exceptional volunteer dinner.  If you wish to nominate a volunteer for this award, send an email or letter to me by January 12th with the name of the volunteer, name of their child(ren) attending Belleview and a brief description telling us, why you nominated this exceptional volunteer.  Please limit to 100 words. If this nominee is selected as the honoree your description may be read the night of the event. While not all volunteers will receive this award, I love hearing about each of our volunteers. I give a huge round of applause to all parents, families and community members who give time to our school.  Even the smallest amount makes a difference.  Belleview is a great school because of the partnership we share with our community. I look forward to seeing you in the classrooms, hallways, or outside as you drop off your children.
