Nominate NMPS Staff for Recognition

Celebrating NMPS Staff


"Stars" of the Month

Throughout the 2018-19 school year, we will be publicly recognizing NMPS staff members for the good work they do to positively impact our students and/or the community of New Milford and we would like you to help! Parents, students, and fellow staff members are invited to complete a short online form to nominate a New Milford Public Schools staff member: whether it be a teacher, guidance counselor, nurse, paraeducator, school psychologist, secretary, social worker, administrator, cafeteria worker, custodian, coach or another support person 
of your choice. You are welcome to make a nomination at any time and for as many deserving staff members as you wish. 


From all the forms submitted, six honorees will be selected each month, one from each school and one non-school specific honoree. All honorees will be invited to attend the Board of Education monthly meeting for public congratulations where they will receive a star lapel pin as a small symbol in recognition of their “star” qualities. In addition, thanks to our continuing partnership with Ingersoll Automotive of Danbury, one lucky honoree each month will be gifted at random with a courtesy car to drive for the month.


Congratulations to the November 2018 "Stars"
