District Digest

A weekly newsletter for employees

Gold Stars!

  • Heather Christian (Human Resources) is always the first to lend a helping hand when someone is in need! She will stop whatever she's doing to get things done and will make sure it's done right. Everyone needs a Heather!
  • Marmie Poage (Ticasuk Brown) - Her shift ended by unloading one pallet of Chromebooks and securing the other. Her next shift began with clearing snow AND making sure the other pallet was out of instruction's way! She lives by her reply: I'm on my way!
  • Kelly Zerbst (Midnight Sun) - From welcoming students every day at the front door, to assisting with MTSS services, to filling in for recess duty, Kelly goes above and beyond EVERY day.
  • Shelly Curtis (Salcha) - Ms. Curtis was critical in coordinating our Fire Drill Flash Mob with our Partner in Education, Salcha Fire and Rescue. You can see our video on our district's YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8Am8NXoqpM

We want to highlight the daily awesome of district employees - introducing the Gold Star Employee Recognition Form. Take a few minutes and give kudos to a coworker who has gone above and beyond recently. Employees who are submitted for a gold star will be highlighted every week in the District Digest.

Raven Fun Fact: Common Ravens are omnivores, but most of their diet is meat. At times they eat arthropods, seeds, and grain, but they are more carnivorous than crows. They scavenge for carrion and garbage and also prey on rodents and on the eggs and nestlings of other birds.
