Presidential Award for Math & Science Teaching

The National Science Foundation is currently accepting nominations and applications for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in the Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) program. PAEMST is the highest recognition that a kindergarten through 12th grade math or science teacher may receive for outstanding teaching in the United States. Awards may be given to math and science teachers in each state and U.S. jurisdiction and up to 108 awardees may be recognized each year.

This year the teachers in grades K-6 are eligible for this award. Presidential awardees will receive a certificate signed by the President of the United States, a trip for two to Washington DC to attend a series of recognition events and professional development opportunities, and a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation. Awardees also join an active network of outstanding educators throughout the Nation.

Anyone, including the general public, may nominate one or more teachers by completing the nomination form available at https://www.paemst.org. You will need the teacher's name, email address and school contact information for submission. Teachers may also initiate the application process themselves at https://www.paemst.org.

The nomination deadline for teachers (grades K-6) is Friday, April 1, 2016. The application deadline is Sunday, May 1, 2016. If your campus does nominate a teacher, please notify the curriculum coordinator as well.

TELPAS Calibration

The Intermediate Computer Lab will be closed and not available for classes on Tuesday, February 16th due to TELPAS Calibration.

If a sub is required fill out the Staff Development/School Business form and turn it in to Mrs. Masterson. If you have located and contacted a sub put their name on a sticky note on the School Business form so Mrs. Seaman can input them into AESOP.
