October 2022 District Awards
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 Kian!
While it is only October, Kians teacher can already see he is on a pathway to achieve great things at Kelly. Kian's attitude and excitement to be at school is both impressive and inspirational. He inspires his teacher to be at Kelly each day to see what is next for him. Our team can't wait to see what this year has in store for Kian!

"I Make a Difference!" support staff award recipient is Leif Horstmeyer!
Leif goes above and beyond the scope of his job duties, always putting the school's needs first and foremost. His main concern is the safety and needs of the staff and students. He never turns his back on anyone who is in need of assistance. Moriarty School is SO thankful to have Leif as a part of their team!
