Save the date for the Annual Teacher Appreciation Banquet!

Join us for the Annual Teacher Appreciation banquet to honor our dedicated Springfield Public Schools teachers! More than two decades of happy memory making for teachers and educators, visiting and sharing stories with peers, winning awards, performances from students, door prizes and so much more!

The Teacher Appreciation Banquet is hosted annually by the Foundation for Springfield Public Schools. It’s the Foundation’s biggest event of the year and will be held on Monday, April 15, 5:30, 2019, at the Oasis Convention Center in Springfield.

The evening will kick off at 5:30 with a fun, networking hour featuring an amazing silent auction, games, and much more! New this year – we’ll be giving out door prizes during the networking hour! 417 Magazine photographers will be on-hand to take People Pics which will be shared online and in 417 Magazine. Plus, Fun Pics Photo Booth will also be with us to take complimentary, fun, prop-accessorized photos in their photo booth for educators to take home.

Kevin & Liz from 105.9 KGBX and iHeartMedia station will be our emcees again this year! More exciting program announcements will be coming soon.

And of course throughout the evening, we’ll honor all of our dedicated, SPS educators and also recognize recipients of SPS educator awards including the 2019 Teacher of the Year Award.
