The Bartlesville Public Schools Foundation is sponsoring this year's Teacher of the Year Celebration on Tuesday, February 26 from 5:30-7 p.m. in the Bartlesville Community Center.

The Foundation is pulling out all the stops to make this free and public event a memorable one. The teacher honorees will be walking the red carpet at 5:30 p.m. to a reception with snacks for all to enjoy, including items from Sugarica and 3 Kids and A Cake. The Chick-fil-A Cow will be visiting with guests and bringing trays of chicken nuggets. The first 100 BPSD employees who display their ID badge will receive a swag bag of goodies from local businesses. 

The awards ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. with Maria Gus acting as the emcee and partnering with Clint Musslewhite on the red carpet. At the event, the site Teachers of the Year will be recognized and the District Teacher of the Year will be announced. The site Rising Star Teachers will also be honored, with the District Rising Star Teacher announced along with the Elementary and Secondary Rookie Teachers of the Year. The winner of this year's Kurt Schmoldt Teacher Appreciation Award will also be announced as well as the recipients of this year's Bartlesville Education Association Friends of Education Award. District employees with 20 or more years of service will be awarded their service pins. 

The presenting sponsors for the event are Arvest and Patriot Chevrolet. The Bartlesville Public Schools Foundation will be accepting donations at the door and encourages everyone to come out and celebrate some of our finest teachers.
