Do you want to recognize and thank someone who puts a lot of heart and energy into our school? Nominate that volunteer for one of our three Annual Awards.

The Briarwood PTA annually recognizes volunteers and educators who go above and beyond for the sake of our kids through the Golden Acorn, Outstanding Educator, and Outstanding Advocate Awards. 

The Golden Acorn is a PTA award given every year to outstanding volunteers for their service to our school and community. Our Golden Acorn specifically recognizes the contributions individuals have made at Briarwood Elementary and within our local community. 

This award is, above all, a PTA award whose winners volunteer in ways that meet the mission of the PTA: promoting the health, welfare, safety and education of all children and youth in the home, school, and community. Volunteers demonstrate an outstanding personal commitment to improving the lives of children and youth through their service to the school, district, and community.  

The Outstanding Educator Award was created by the PTA to recognize individuals who have provided outstanding educational opportunities for children and youth that are beyond the normal scope of their jobs. An educator can be, but is not limited to being a teacher, and can include specialists, support staff, administrators or community members.

The Outstanding Advocate Award honors an individual for a demonstrated commitment to helping create strong policies relating to the health, welfare, safety, and education of children. Volunteers who speak up for students, or who try to change things for the benefit of children are considered advocates. Nominees for this award could be a general or specialist teacher, an assistant, administrator, other school or district staff or a community member

Award recipients from all over the Issaquah School District will also be honored at a special district awards ceremony on April 4, 2019.

Please help us select outstanding volunteers from the Briarwood community to receive an Award by nominating someone you feel is deserving!  Thank You!
