• Teacher of the Year

    It is time again to honor the teachers at the Catoctin High School and the feeder schools (Thurmont Primary, Thurmont Elementary, Thurmont Middle, Lewistown ES, Emmitsburg ES, Sabillasville ES and Mother Seton School).  This is a program the Thurmont Lions Club has been doing for numerous years.             

    I know some of the principals are new at their schools this year.  This will be an introduction in helping you to understand the value the Thurmont Lions Club (TLC) places on honoring the teachers. While all teachers impact the lives of the children they touch, the TLC will be honoring teachers who impact lives in a particularly significant manner. 

    Below is the nomination form outlining the guidelines to be used to nominate teachers to be honored for the 2020 Teacher of the Year award. 

    Nomination Forms can be turned in to the school where the teacher works or it can be submitted electronically to our email address thurmontlionsclub@gmail.com

    A reception will be held in May to recognize all of the nominees.

    Thank you for your support in helping the Thurmont Lions Club in recognizing the leadership and guidance that our teachers provide on a daily basis
