Student Excellence Foundation Events

The Student Excellence Foundation organizes a number of community outreach and fundraising events throughout the year.

Our annual events include:

Celebrate our Stars: Distinguished Educator Awards
Each spring the Foundation recognizes excellence in teaching in District 200. Nominations may be made by any District 200 student, parent/guardian, alum, staff, or community member. Any educator is eligible for nomination if he/she is currently employed by District 200; classroom aides are not eligible. A parent or student may nominate more than one educator; however, a separate nomination form must be used for each. Educators are not allowed to self-nominate.

The Foundation will present six educators with our Distinguished Educator Award.  Awards are presented to one educator at each school level (preschool/elementary, middle, and high school), for each the North & South portions of the District.

This event is organized as an outreach event for the Foundation. Students will have the opportunity to visit exhibits and participate in hands-on STEM experiments.
