APPLE Recognition Awards

Awarding your teacher with an APPLE Recognition Award is a perfect way to say THANK YOU during Teacher Appreciation week or before the end of the year! An APPLE Recognition Award honors special teachers, administrators, staff and school leaders for their dedication and contributions to excellence in education. An APPLE Award is a tax deductible donation to the Bozeman Schools Foundation for their district wide programs (in the name of your chosen educator). Your donation of any amount will honor deserving recipients with a personalized card and a mention on our Facebook Page, our webpage and a note sent to their Principal.

Forms for APPLE Awards are sent home with K-8 school kids in November / December for the end of the year Awards and in April for Teacher Appreciation week.
