Congratulations to our 2024 Teachers of the Year, Teachers are shining stars.

Congratulations to our 2024 Inspire Excellence Award Honorees!  

CCUSD held our annual "Inspire Excellence" Awards Ceremony April 24th at the Fine Arts Center. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend and to all our amazing employees and volunteers who make CCUSD such a wonderful community!

Honorees and attendees enjoyed a performance by the combined Cactus Shadows and Sonoran Trails choirs before receiving their awards. Awards were given to this year's retirees and rookies of the year, those with 35, 25 and 20 years of service, employees from each department, and employees and community members from each school site. Kiwanis of Carefree was honored as this year's Community Sponsor of the Year. There was also a dessert reception for award recipients and their guests following the ceremony. 

Congratulations to all the honorees, you truly exemplify what it means to "Inspire Excellence!"

Congratulations to our 2024 Teachers of the Year!  

We had the great honor of hosting the Teacher of the Year award dinner 3/27/24! The theme was "Teachers are Shining Stars," and the seven winners each shine brightly at their schools. They go above and beyond for their students and are integral parts of their school community. They exemplify what it means to Inspire Excellence, and we are so lucky to have them!
 

Honorees, along with family, friends and colleagues, enjoyed a performance by the Cactus Shadows Vivace Honors Choir, heartfelt words from Superintendent Dolezal, a catered dinner, and a short video featuring some of their current and former students before receiving their awards.

Thank you to event sponsors: CORE Construction, Chasse Building Team, Kiwanis of Carefree, Ms.Sharon Fox, the Cave Creek Unified Education Foundation, Cactus Shadows PTO & Mathnasium of Cave Creek.
