VIRTUAL TEACHERS-OF-THE-MONTH AWARD
During a year where student learning was impacted by school closures due to the pandemic virus, the Rox Project S.A.V.E. Foundation came through and paid tribute to our educators.
The Foundation created an online promotion where students from grades K-12 all throughout Central Minnesota could nominate a teacher that made an impact through fun and unique virtual teaching lessons in the closing months of the 2019-20 school year.
Overall, there would be five (5) teachers chosen. Each received a $500 Visa Gift Card to use for classroom supplies and a special plaque that read a TEACHER OPENS A MIND ... TOUCHES A HEART ... AND SHAPES THE FUTURE FOR THEIR STUDENTS!
The teachers were saluted at a Rox baseball game on August 12, 2020.
