CURRENTLY ACCEPTING TEACHER NOMINATIONS FOR
GARFIELD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL & LONGFELLOW MIDDLE SCHOOL (MONTH OF SEPTEMBER). *Nominations submitted for other schools will be saved for the month they are listed under.*
Excellence for All is more than a motto; it is a way to ensure the needs of every child are met.
Some students are working to overcome language barriers, while others face the adversity of a learning disability. Some students require the rigor of more challenging curriculum, while others need extra support to deal with traumatic events in the lives.
Every student is different, and – for Enid Public Schools – all means ALL.
The Excellence for All Teacher Award, sponsored by Dan and Karen Randall, will honor EPS educators who go above and beyond to ensure the needs of all students are met.
Two $500 awards will be granted to two teachers (from two different schools) each month. Schools will be honored in the order of their socioeconomic need, based on their free- and reduced-lunch percentages.

October – Monroe & Coolidge
November – Adams & McKinley
December – Emerson & Enid High School

Students, parents and community members will have the opportunity to nominate a teacher by visiting: www.enidpublicschools.org/excellenceforall. The nominator will be asked, among other questions, to share a story of how the teacher exemplifies the district’s “Excellence for All” motto.
Once the winner for each school is selected, the awards will be presented to the teachers in their classrooms so that their students can cheer for their good works, along with the community.
