The Foundation for Belmont Education recently announced that the nomination period for the 2020 Outstanding Teacher Awards and the S. Warren Farrell Award for Educational Excellence will open on March 2.

This recognition program, sponsored by Belmont Savings Bank Foundation, identifies and celebrates the contributions made by teachers in the Belmont Public Schools.

Community members, colleagues, parents and high school and middle school students are encouraged to submit nominations for teachers who they believe deserve this recognition. Nominations are accepted between March 2 and March 20 by filling out an online form at http://fbe-belmont.org/outstandingteacher.

Teachers from Belmont’s six public schools are chosen for this award. Recipients will be honored first at a surprise classroom visit and then at a district-wide award ceremony on May 5 at Chenery Middle School, 95 Washington St., Belmont.
