The Newton Parents Advisory Council for Special Education (NewtonPAC) is thrilled to announce our Third Annual NewtonPAC Special Educator Awards!

The awards ceremony will be held on Tuesday, June 5th at 7pm at Newton North Lasker Theatre, 457 Walnut St and will be followed by a casual reception.

Once again, we will be honoring a few of the many members of NPS staff who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to have truly made a difference in the lives of our children with special needs.

Do you have someone you’d like to recognize?

Send your nominations to by May 15th.

Please read the following important information regarding nominations!

All nominations must be received by May 15th.

Nominations MUST include:

1) Your name (will not be made public – nominator’s names are known only to award recipients).

2) Nominee’s home school and e-mail address. If s/he is a district-wide employee, please designate as such and note which school your child attends.

3) A SHORT paragraph on why you believe s/he should be recognized (please help by keeping it short!) .

Please note that the awards are for the CURRENT SCHOOL YEAR ONLY.

All nominees will be recognized.

Nominees can be any member of NPS staff.  They do NOT have to be special education dedicated if they made a difference to a child receiving special education services.

There is no official limit to the number of staff members nominated per family, but please use your discretion. The awards are meant to recognize truly outstanding efforts.

Send your nominations directly to Eileen at by May 15th.

If you are interested in helping with refreshments, set-up or clean-up for the awards ceremony, please write to to volunteer.
