Please fill the form out in its entirety and submit it by 4:00pm on March 18, 2016. The winners will be chosen through a detailed
process with both of our parent groups: Accountability and PTO. Students who will are nominated for a CODE award will be notified of their child's nomination
and families will be invited to attend our end of the year awards ceremony.
