EFCO, a Pella Corporation, is sponsoring a Teacher of the Month program in partnership with The Monett Times.
The program was created to recognize outstanding local teachers and reward them. Each month, the winning teacher will receive a recognition plaque and a check from EFCO in the amount of $250 to be used for classroom supplies. The teacher will also featured in the newspaper, and the winning nomination letter will be published.
Any public or private school teacher in Monett, Purdy, Verona, Pierce City or Freistatt is eligible for the award. Nominations can be made by students, parents or fellow educators.
Nomination letters should be submitted to school offices, and a representative from the newspaper will gather the letters from each participating school. For the March Teacher of the Month award, nomination letters need to be turned in by March 10. The deadline for April Teacher of the Month nominations will be March 26.
The winning teacher will be announced in the newspaper each month following a brief awards ceremony that will be held at the teacher's school. That awards presentation will be attended by representatives from EFCO and The Monett Times.
