View Ridge Elementary PTA


Each year PTA recognizes volunteers and educators who have given outstanding, continued and dedicated service to our children and school community through Golden Acorn and Outstanding Educator awards. The Golden Acorn award recognizes a volunteer who has given outstanding service to our children and school community. The Outstanding Educator award goes to a teacher, assistant, custodian, bus driver, administrator or community member who goes beyond the normal expectations of their jobs to make the learning environment fun, beneficial and challenging for our students.

Each award recipient receives a gold pin and his/her name added to the recognition plaque. They will also be acknowledged at a district-wide reception. The PTA Council contributes to the Washington State PTA Scholarship Foundation in their name, which provides scholarships to high school graduates entering college and vocational schools each year.

This is your opportunity to participate in the selection of our award recipients by nominating candidates for consideration by our award committee. To nominate someone for an award, complete the nomination form and return it to the box in View Ridge Elementary office. Golden Acorn award recipients must be current PTA members and cannot have won before. You may attach an additional sheet if needed, and you may also email your nominations to Amanda Cabana at
