2021 Newton SEPAC Special Educator Virtual Awards Deadline - May 17, 2021

Hi Franklin families,

Nominations are still open for the 2021 Newton SEPAC Special Educator Virtual Awards! Let’s show some love for the special educators at Franklin! Being nominated for a Newton SEPAC Special Educator Award is a great honor for our amazing specialists, therapists, aides, BTs, etc.

Please go to to submit your nominations by May 17, 2021. Here's how the 2021 "Virtual" Awards will work:

  • Families will submit nominations using the Google Form

  • Each nominee will receive the text of the nomination in an email

  • The email to each nominee will also include messages of thanks from Mayor Fuller, the School Committee, Superintendent Fleishman, Assistant Superintendent for Student Services Beth Fitzmaurice, and the SEPAC Board

  • Each nominee will receive a printed award that will be dropped off at their school or location in early June

  • We will send each Principal a list of the nominees from their schools

For those new to Newton SEPAC, the annual Special Educator Awards are a way to honor NPS and OOD staff who have gone the extra mile to support our special education students. Nominees span a wide range of staff, including teachers, aides, BTs, therapists, bus drivers, crossing guards, administrators, other support staff, etc. All nominees receive an award. The Awards are usually held in person but will be virtual in 2021 for the second year running. (Fingers crossed for an in-person gathering in 2022!) If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our Franklin Liaisons to the Newton SEPAC, Yael Mito & Amy Horsman at Thank you! -The Franklin PTO
