Four Golden Halo Finalists
December 2017: It’s that time of year! For the past twelve years, the Christian Chamber of Southwest Florida has honored private school teachers with the Golden Halo Awards. (The equivalent to the public school’s Golden Apple Awards) Their format has finalists chosen four school levels: K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12. Students and parents nominated their favorite teachers by clicking here and filling out the nomination form.
March 6, 2018: Congratulations to the following teachers that received the official announcement today that they are Golden Halo finalists for 2018: (left to right) Mrs. Amber Davis, first grade; Mrs. Jo Weber, kindergarten; Miss Naomi Welborn, third grade; and Mrs. Shellee Harper, second grade.
