Touchdown for Teachers
The Baltimore Ravens and M&T Bank are inviting nominations for their 10th annual Touchdown for Teachers program, which recognizes local teachers who provide outstanding service for their schools and communities.
We encourage you to nominate an outstanding educator via the online application form through Friday, April 7. All finalists will be notified of their selection by April 21.
Three finalists – including the eventual grand prize winner – will be selected from a panel of community members and school officials, with the assistance of Baltimore Ravens and M&T Bank staff. They will be chosen based on involvement in their school and/or community, their degree of positive impact and a demonstrated commitment to education.
The grand prize winner will receive the following:
· $5,000 in grant funds, payable to his/her school or district
· A classroom visit by a Ravens’ coach or player, accompanied by mascot Poe
The two remaining finalists will each receive $1,000 in grant funds, payable to their school or district. Every nominated educator will receive a certificate of recognition from the Ravens and M&T Bank.
To nominate a teacher for Touchdown for Teachers, complete the online nomination form at www.baltimoreravens.com/teachers by April 7.
Interim Report Cards and Progress Reports
Any students in grades Pre-K through 2nd grade will be getting an interim report on Friday, March 3, 2023. Students in grades 3 through high school will NOT be getting interims.
Report cards and progress reports for all students will be sent home at the end of quarter 3 on April 18, 2023.
When inclement weather conditions occur, the decision may be made to delay the opening of school by one or two hours, to close school, or to dismiss school early. An announcement will be made for delayed openings or closings by 6:00 a.m. Every effort will be made to make the announcement as early as possible.
In rare instances, there may be an announcement made to delay the opening of schools, but that a re-evaluation may occur. The re-evaluation could result in a later announcement that schools will be closed for the day. A final decision to close schools following the “delay with re-evaluation” announcement will be made by 7:00 a.m.
All weather-related announcements will be made through the following media outlets:
WTTR 1470 AM, WBAL-TV Channel 11, WJZ-TV Channel 13, WMAR-TV Channel 2, WBFF Fox 45, WPOC/WCAO/B104.3, WBAL Radio 1090 AM, Metro Network V-103 (WXTR, WWLG-AM, WGRX, WCAO, WASA, WANN, WBGR, WJHY, WNAV), Infinity Broadcasting (WQSR/WWMS/WMIX 106.5/WLIF 101.9), WRBS 95.1 FM, WAFY-KEY 103, WGET 1320 AM/WGTY 107.7 FM, WHVR 1280 AM/The PEAK 98.5 FM, WFMD 930 AM/WFRE 99.9.
