On May 4, 2017, the Archdiocese of Washington Catholic Schools will host the ninth annual Golden Apple Awards for excellence in teaching. Ten teachers will be honored for their outstanding teaching and commitment to Catholic education, and our 1st grade teacher, Miss Nicole Hayes, is one of them.
The Golden Apple Award is the creation of the Donahue Family Foundation. Mr. and Mrs. Jack Donahue are parents of 13 children, all of whom were educated in Catholic schools. Eager to express their deep appreciation to Catholic school teachers for providing a quality academic and faith-filled education for their children, the Foundation has established this award in four dioceses around the country.
