The Nugget wants to help the Sisters community honor the dedicated educators who have continued to serve their students in the confusing and chaotic atmosphere of a global pandemic.

In lieu of the traditional Outlaw Calendar, The Nugget will publish each month a Sisters Educator Honor Roll — a salute to the teachers and staff who go above and beyond the call of duty to make their students’ educational experience in Sisters exceptional — whether it’s online or in-person.

Students and family members are invited to email brief statements recognizing exceptional educators to be published in the Honor Roll. Include the name of the student (first name only is OK); name of the teacher; grade level and school; and a statement describing what makes the educator exceptional.

Send submissions of 55 words or less to leith@nuggetnews.com. They will be placed on a space-available basis.
