(Batesville, IN) – The Batesville Community Education Foundation (BCEF) is sponsoring a spring Honor a Staff Member sign campaign to give the community the opportunity to thank Batesville Community School Corporation (BCSC) staff members in a public way, according to BCEF executive director Anne Wilson.

As the end of the school year approaches, BCEF wants to recognize those individuals who are making a difference at the public schools.

For a minimum donation of $10 per honoree, any BCSC teacher, administrator, staff member, bus driver, or coach – past or present – can be thanked for a job well done.

The donation deadline is Thursday, April 27 in order to have a sign with the employee’s name placed outside one of the school buildings during National Educators Week in May.

Donate online at BatesvilleEducationFoundation.org/events/honor-a-teacher/.

Paper donation forms can also be downloaded from the BCEF website.

They can be mailed in, dropped off at the BCSC administration building, or returned to any of the four BCSC school buildings by the deadline.

“At just a $10 donation per sign, this is a fundraiser that a majority of people can afford to participate in, even in tough economic times as these,” Wilson said. “It’s a great way to show the Batesville community our gratitude to those who are impacting students while raising money for future BCEF programs.”

The Batesville Community Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides additional funding for innovative learning opportunities that go beyond the basics in academics, athletics, and the arts in the Batesville public schools, enhancing the educational environment for all students.

Proceeds from the sign campaign help BCEF support the BCSC staff recognition banquet, as well as other BCEF initiatives, such as classroom grants and the Art on Main mural project downtown.
