Zionsville Education Foundation: Personalized messages can be sent to teachers


The Zionsville Education Foundation will offer Eagle Honor Awards this spring as a way to thank and support Zionsville Community Schools teachers and staff.

For a donation of $10 or more, families can send a certificate with a personalized message of thanks to a teacher, administrator, bus driver, counselor, custodian, principal, food service worker, instructional assistant or coach.

Proceeds support teachers, students and Zionsville schools through future ZEF grants. Awards will be available for purchase during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 4-8.

“We always greatly appreciate everything that teachers do,” ZEF Executive director Lyle Brown said. “Obviously, they’ve had to turn their profession upside down in a moment’s notice and have a done a really good job of that here in Zionsville, and I think it’s a time when it’s more important now more than ever to tell (them) how much we appreciate all that they’re doing, not only every day when we are in in-person school, but also every day when we’re kind of in this uncertain time of eLearning and stay-at-home orders. They provide a lot of consistency for our kids, and that is worth a lot during times like this.”

Certificates will be sent electronically. A physical certificate will be presented for classroom display when in-person classes resume. Eagle Honor Awards can be ordered online at  zionsvilleeducationfoundation.org.
