How it Works:

Each week, we will place 4 staff members pictures and Bios up on our Sunshine Board, located in the main hallway, across from room 15. There is also a Praise Box located near the board where we encourage students/parents/staff members to write a note of positive praise to any of our 4 Sunshine's of the week. At the end of the week the praise notes be delivered to the staff members to whom they belong.
