Optimist International Harper Creek Club

Teacher of the Month

  

The Harper Creek Optimist Club Board of Directors voted February 2019 to initiate a new program that monthly during the school year recognizes teachers in the Harper Creek Community Schools. A “Teacher of the Month” is selected by the school’s Principal from each of the five schools: HC High School, HC Middle School, Beadle Lake Elementary, Sonoma Elementary and Wattles Park Elementary. The honored teacher will receive specials perks for a month such as a classroom door award, special recognition on daily announcements plus a special parking spot with a designated sign. In addition, if the teacher (and family) would like to attend a Harper Creek Optimist Club meeting during their award month, they will receive a free dinner plus a $50 check to be utilized for their classroom.
