Thank you to our families that nominated teachers and staff members at Grant Ragan for going above and beyond for a co-worker, student, family, or the community this year. The following individuals were nominated for being exceptional and sharing their unique talents and contributions. Two winners were randomly drawn from the nominations this month and each winner was presented with a gift card to show our appreciation. All nominated staff will receive a certificate of recognition for going above and beyond this year. Please join us in celebrating these team members!

WaukTheTalk May Winners:

Mrs Cooley was nominated by a parent who wrote, “My daughter has been in her class for two years now and is very very shy. Over the last two years I have seen my daughter come out of her shell be more open with friends/teachers and I truly believe it’s because of Kara and all the ladies in the room. I wish I could nominate every single one of them because they are so incredibly patient, kind and, loving to my girl!”

Nurse Sara was nominated by a student who wrote, “She helps people if they get hurt or sick. She is nice and caring.”
