Red Apple Awards

West Royalty’s Giving Tree is the first thing you see as you come into the main entryway of our school. It features the winners of our school community volunteer award, better known as the Red Apple Award.

West Royalty's Red Apple Award is presented annually to one (or more) parent(s) of the school community who has made an exceptional contribution to the total well-being of children and has demonstrated ongoing service to the school community through their volunteer activities.  The award is presented to a parent leaving the school community as a result of relocation or their last child graduating from the school.

Red Apples are awarded to an individual who:

  • has contributed voluntary service within the school community;
  • has provided advocacy on local issues and challenges;
  • has consistently supported the goals of the school through their dedication and commitment; 
  • has given dedicated leadership service to the school and the Home and School Association; and
