FPS Excellence Awards

This year has been a year like no other. Despite all of the setbacks, Franklin Pierce Schools students, staff and partners have prevailed to overcome numerous factors and advance our work as a district. It is important that we not get lost in the hustle, and pause to recognize excellence in our midst. This year’s Franklin Pierce Schools awards will differ from the past as we look to celebrate unique contributions in each of the district’s three focus areas: Equity and Social Justice, Family and Community Engagement, and Improving Instruction as well as the manner in which we accomplish our work.

Nominations will be open until Monday, April 26, 2021. A nominating team consisting of staff, students and community members will review the nominations and award recipients will be recognized at the May 11, 2021 board meeting.
