Help choose Employee of Month

The program, which runs through May, is a way for school employees to be shown appreciation and gratitude from co-workers, parents, students and the community. The program has been operated for several years through paper ballots in each school.

Anyone may nominate an employee for recognition on each school’s website.

To nominate a school-based employee in the district, visit the employee’s school website and click the “vote now for Employee of the Month” button on the homepage.

Each school’s recipient is presented with a $25 Visa gift card from Family Trust, and his or her picture is displayed in the school’s lobby.
