    It's the little things...
     
    ritrovato 

    Every day, staff in our classrooms inspire their students to achieve academic excellence and personal success. Students often say that it's the little things teachers and staff do that make a big difference in their lives. To recognize those small, and sometimes big things our staff do, our PTA Council and Superintendent developed a staff recognition program - the Inspiration Program.
     
    The Inspiration Program allows students to submit a nomination, either online or in paper, to the Superintendent's Office. Students are asked to give a brief description about their teacher and why he or she inspires them and has made a difference in their lives.
     
    In the first few months of the program, we received 30 Inspiration Nominations. Each teacher who was nominated received a copy of the nomination, along with a note from the Superintendent and PTA Council thanking them for making a difference in the lives of our students. 
     
    Last week, a prize patrol surprised the top four nominees in their classrooms with a framed copy of their inspiration, a balloon and an inspirational poem with District 200 pin. The top four Inspiration Nominees were Ms. Katherine Alvis (Wiesbrook), Mrs. Ellen Murphy (Wheaton North), Mrs. Linda Ritrovato (Sandburg) and Ms. Kristin Tonn (Madison).
     
    Congratulations to all staff who received a nomination and thank you to all our staff who inspire our students each and every day!
