Dear Renaissance families,

The annual Weston Award nominations are fast approaching! Please help recognize a talented Renaissance teacher by filling out the short form and submitting it by March 4th. The winning teacher from each school receives $2000. And all the nominees are told that they've been nominated.

The selection isn't just based on how many nominations each teacher receives. You (or your student) can write one fantastic nomination that might just sway the committee!

So think about a teacher who really inspires your student. Then take a few minutes to fill in the form. Please help recognize Renaissance's wonderful teachers!

Print a hard copy (you will find it at and drop it off at the Renaissance office. Or use these questions and email it to
