The H. H. “Red” and Ruth H. Nelson Family Foundation Excellence in Teaching Award recognizes those individuals who go above and beyond to demonstrate leadership and vision in our schools.
Nominations for these awards will be accepted through February 21, 2014. Making a nomination is a fantastic way to give a teacher the recognition he/she deserves. Five teachers will each receive a $5,000 check, a specially designed trophy and public recognition. You may nominate your favorite teacher online only by Clicking Here.
Nominees must have a minimum of two years experience as a certified teacher or counselor in the Council Bluffs Community School District (K-12). Nominations will be accepted from students (current and former), parents, fellow teachers, school administrators and the general public. Individuals cannot nominate themselves.
The H. H. “Red” and Ruth H. Nelson Family Foundation Excellence in Teaching Award Program is administered by The Omaha Community Foundation. Neither the Nelson Family nor administrators from either of the eligible school districts are involved in the process. Judges are independently selected by The Omaha Community Foundation and neither the Nelson Family nor school district administrators are aware of their identity.

We are introducing a new way to pay for school meals with My School Bucks! The first step parents need to take is to register your child for a free account. You can then access your account balance, set up automatic payments, schedule email reminders, and download the free app for use with your smartphone! Parents can still access the “old” system to check your account balance and pay for meals. However, we would like to encourage parents to start using My School Bucks to become familiar with the new system. Open this story and click on the image or this link to be connected.
