Registering for the Awards Ceremony

Each awardee school is permitted to send two (2) individuals to represent their school at the awards ceremony. The District Superintendent of awardee schools will be invited separately. In the event the principal at the time of the school’s nomination and application is no longer the principal this school year, then the principal at the time of nomination is also invited to attend. Each school can decide who they want to represent their school. Some examples are school principal, principal at time of nomination (if different from current principal), teacher or staff, and/or school board member.

Please use your school’s unique identifier to complete the registration for yourself and a teacher/staff by Friday, October 21, 2022. If there has been a change in leadership this school year, please contact Judy Cercone at jcercone@rmcres.com to register the previous principal/principal at time of nomination and application.

Once you have registered your official school representatives, you will receive an email confirming your registration for official representatives registered.  Please do check your spam/junk mail folders just in case your email filtering programs are filtering out your confirmation email as spam or junk mail. Please be sure to bring your registration confirmation email with you to the ceremony as reference.
