This morning at Northstar Elementary teachers were recognized by their colleagues with nominations for a Crystal Apple and NorthSTAR awards. Staff members make nominations throughout the month for their colleagues; at the end of the month a leadership team convenes and selects a winner of both awards. The following Monday morning during professional development, all of the nominations are read aloud in front of the staff, and the winners are recognized.
Vickie LeMay was the winner of the Crystal Apple for the month of November. Her nomination: "She is so polite and hardworking. She always has a smile on her face and a kind welcoming word to others. She is willing to help out with anything and go the extra mile for the students. We are so lucky to have her as part of our team."
Anne Gullion was the winner of THE NorthSTAR Award for the month of November. Her nomination: "Anne always goes above and beyond for her students. She will do whatever is needed to make them feel save and cared for. She also is always thinking about the other adults in her classroom and in the building. She is an amazing human and teacher."
