“Teachers fill such an important role in our lives as kids and they rarely receive the recognition they deserve for their efforts,” said Curve General Manager Nate Bowen. “I can’t think of a better way to finish off a successful school year than to honor some of the most impactful teachers in our community at a Curve game.”

Every nominated teacher will receive two complimentary Grandstand tickets to Teacher Appreciation Night at the Curve game on Saturday, April 22rd.

Teacher Appreciation Night will also host a Book Drive which will benefit elementary school students who come from a low-income background. Fans are asked to drop off books at the gate upon entrance and a suggested list of books will be made available on the Curve website.
