CCSD Engagement Unit celebrates 12 Days of Recognition

The Clark County School District (CCSD) Engagement Unit is celebrating 12 Days of Recognition leading up to the 2022-23 Winter Break. Students and employees will be highlighted on social media throughout the month of December through community partnership opportunities.

The Pac-12 and College Football Playoff (CFP) Foundation hosted an assembly at J. Harold Brinley Middle School on Dec. 2, 2022 to announce the winner of their “Extra Yard for Teachers” program. Mascots from Pac-12 universities surprised Mr. Teejay Kreuzer with a check presentation for going the extra mile in the company of Brinley Middle School students.

The winning teacher and several students will be invited to attend the 2022 Pac-12 Football Championship Game at Allegiant Stadium where they will be honored. Extra Yard for Teachers is the CFP Foundation’s primary platform to elevate the teaching profession by inspiring and empowering teachers.

Las Vegas’ newest professional sports franchise, the Las Vegas Desert Dogs, awarded Pennie Edmond, the longest-tenured CCSD teacher with their “Teacher of the Game” award during a surprise visit to Bonanza High School on December 5, 2022. In partnership with Subaru of Las Vegas and the CCSD Team Engagement Department, the Las Vegas Desert Dogs will present a check and VIP tickets to their first-ever home game where the teacher will be honored.
