The Key is Me Award Recipient Laura Wraight

🏆 Congratulations to Laura Wraight, our Out of District Student Services Liaison, and our 'The Key is Me' awardee for the month of May! Her dedication and hard work in the office are truly remarkable, especially with the added responsibilities of covering for another employee. For the past few months, Laura has been navigating through the new CT-SEDS program while taking on the role of two employees, and she has done so with a smile on her face and without ever complaining. We are lucky to have such a positive, hardworking, and inspiring team member in our midst. Thank you, Laura, for all that you do and for being an excellent example of what it means to be an outstanding employee!

I Make a Difference Award Sarah Herrick

Congratulations to Sarah Herrick, our "I Make A Difference" district award recipient for the month of May! 🎉👏🏼

Sarah’s enthusiasm and commitment to excellence have shone brightly in her current position in the Human Resources Department, where she goes above and beyond to support our teachers.

Her recent gesture of delivering flowers to a teacher who finally received her certification after a challenging process shows her dedication to making a positive difference in people's lives. Congratulations!
