Best in Class Teacher Awards 2020-21

Helping Support Strong Communities

Exceptional towns have a few things in common: strong families, good work, and people who recognize the value of each other. The Chop House family not only strives to make the best food and provide great service, but we take pride in supporting other folks in our communities who also do extraordinary work. The Chop House is excited to continue our annual Teacher Appreciation campaign for the 2020-2021 school year.

$1000 Prizes for Exceptional Teachers

During the 2020-21 school year, the Chop House family is once again celebrating the dedicated men and women who commit themselves to helping nurture our children by being teachers. Everyday teachers inspire the minds and imaginations of young people, help provide safe places for children to grow and play, and give students skills and confidence for the future. Starting in October, we are giving $1,000 each month to teachers from our communities to help them carry out this tremendous and essential “assignment.”
