2023-2024 School Year

Do you know of an outstanding teacher or staff member 

who goes the extra mile for students?


How about a volunteer who quietly contributes 
to Canyon Creek Elementary?

Or a volunteer that goes above and beyond?

Use the form below to confidentially nominate for the awards by Friday, April 19th.

Outstanding Educator Award:

The purpose of the Honorary Lifetime Membership award is to recognize an individual who has contributed significantly to a PTA at the local unit, council, or state level. This award can be given by a PTA unit, council, or region.
