For the past 28 years, we’ve honored individuals in the Boulder Valley School District at our annual Impact Awards. This celebration recognizes one person from each of Boulder Valley’s 56 schools making an extraordinary impact on student learning because of their exceptional collaboration, innovation, and dedication to students. We also award one educator with the Blake Peterson Lifetime Achievement Award and another with the Imogene Maxon Early Teacher Award.
This year, we’re seeing so many people stepping up for our students, we decided to recognize the entire BVSD community through the Impact Awards: Community Edition.
Why we’re celebrating you
Every single person involved in education—teachers, staff, administrators, parents, and students—has gone above and beyond this school year, demonstrating their commitment to education and our students. So this year, in the most extraordinary school year we’ve faced thus far, we’re recognizing the entire BVSD community with an Impact Award.
- Educators, thank you for engaging students and families and keeping them at the forefront of decisions.
- Students, thank you for adapting and staying committed to learning through this difficult year.
- Parents, thank you for your patience and flexibility during a very challenging school year.
- Supporters, thank you for standing with us to show the strength of our community.
How we’re saying thank you
We didn’t let an historic snowstorm get in the way of saying thank you. We hope you were able to see our messaging throughout the community this week. Here’s what you might have missed:
- Our BIG thank you in the Daily Camera on Sunday, March 14, 2021
- Banners and yard signs at every BVSD school
- Posters and stickers at schools and local businesses
- Emails and posts of gratitude on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter
We’re thankful for our presenting sponsor, Premier Members Credit Union, in addition to Google, Comcast and the Boulder Valley Education Association for allowing us to recognize our incredible BVSD community through this gratitude campaign.
Special discounts through the end of the school year
We’re thrilled to partner with 25 businesses offering special discounts for the BVSD community through the end of the school year. It’s been a tough year for our small business community as well, and we’re grateful so many were able to join us in saying thank you.
From coffee shops to bookstores to local restaurants, we hope something on the list brings your family some extra joy.
It’s too early to say what next year’s Impact Awards will look like, though we sure hope to celebrate with you in person. Regardless of how many educators we’re able to recognize each year, please know: we appreciate you!
