Nominate a great school booster

Nominate a great school booster

It’s time to nominate your favorite City School District of Albany volunteer, teacher or staffer for the annual OVATIONS Awards Reception.

You can nominate people in one of two categories: school or district-wide. Download a nomination form, complete it and return it by Feb. 7 in a sealed envelope marked “OVATIONS nomination” to the main office or PTA/PTO/parent mailbox at your child’s school.

Similar to the former PTA Founders Day, the OVATIONS reception will recognize individuals for their work to support our students, our schools and our district community.

The reception will be held Friday, April 24 at 5:30 p.m. at the Italian-American Community Center, located on Washington Avenue Extension. Tickets are $45 each; proceeds will fund a $1,000 scholarship for one student in each of Albany High School’s four academies. Stay tuned for information about ticket sales.
