On October 17, 2019, the Foundation will host the next Salute to the Stars. For the past 21 years, this event has recognized CFISD teacher of the year honorees.

Paraeducators and support staff are also honored for their notable work at their respective schools. Continue reading Salute to the Stars 2019
