Born Shoes and PlanetShoes.com teamed up to recocnize Carlton teachers' hard work on behalf of Carlton's students. On Friday, September 25, the two shoe companies awarded every member of our stuff - including - brand-new footwear!

The two companies issued a call for submissions in May, asking for examples of teachers going above and beyond for their school communities. Art teacher Kate Bouffard entered Carlton, writing about how the entire staff worked together to create the current Innovation Plan and implement it. 

""Børn and PlanetShoes' award is wonderful because it recognizes the value of teamwork and how every staff member is critical to the students' success," she wrote. "We are effective because of how we work as a team."
