Every month, Norwich Public Schools recognizes one student, teacher, and support staff who go above and beyond their set expectations to make a true difference within the NPS community. Nominations are submitted by staff, teachers and administrators. Join us in celebrating these amazing members of our community!
The "You Inspire Me" student award is presented to Dawa!
Dawa has been a student at Mahan School since Kindergarten and is always amazingly kind and respectful. This year she helps in the preschool classroom and does a wonderful job, in addition to helping kindergarten friends at dismissal. She has a positive and upbeat attitude and we all look forward to seeing her smile each day! 💚
"The Key is Me!" teacher award recipient is Chris Hargus!
Chris is a Math Instructional Coach at Veterans’ School who goes above and beyond to meet the needs of all math students and also supports teachers in their instruction. Mr. Hargus is always coming up with creative ways to make learning fun. You can often see him walking backwards with students in the hallway, holding up flashcards so as to not waste instructional time. Veterans’ school is thankful to have a dedicated teacher like Mr. Hargus! 💛
The "I Make A Difference" support staff award recipient is Joyce Mandeville!
Joyce is a dedicated paraprofessional at Moriarty School who was nominated by all the 3rd and 4th grade teachers. Her infectious laugh, sense of humor and generous heart make a world of difference to the students and staff. We congratulate her on both this award and her retirement at the end of the school year. You will be missed! 💛
