Superintendent’s Star Award Winners Celebrated

Congratulations to 30 division employees recently honored at the Superintendent’s Star Award reception.

Click on the Headline to open this post to find event photos and a link to the YouTube video of the recognition ceremony.

Second semester winners – a division-wide instructional winner and a division-wide support staff winner – as well as 28 other top-scoring honorees were applauded at the reception Tuesday, May 24.

  • Division-Wide Winners for Second Semester:

IMG_0028Instructional Staff Award: 
Reinee Goetsch
Early Childhood Special Education Teacher at Northern Shores Elementary School

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_0024

Support Staff Award:
Deborah Topping
Bookkeeper
at Creekside Elementary School

   

 

 

 

 

 

 Reinee Goetsch was nominated by interpreter Kim Werner, who works in her classroom to assist hearing impaired children. Calling Ms. Goetsch “an effective, compassionate, and caring teacher” who makes her classroom “a fun, interactive, multi-sensory environment,” she was praised for adapting her teaching style to meet each individual student’s needs. At Halloween, for example, she brings in items for each child to actively participate in the story The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything. When the class reads The Gingerbread Man, Ms. Goetsch brings ingredients to make gingerbread play dough. “While Ms. Goetsch is very conscientious that some of her charges are locked in their bodies due to debilitating diseases, such as Cerebral Palsy, she will take a child from the wheelchair, sit them in her lap, and engage them in the activity by exposing them to the touch and feel of materials or the smell … any sensation that could provide stimulation,” wrote Werner.  Ms. Goetsch is also responsible for the plastic bag recycling program at Northern Shores. In addition, she co-teaches a community sign language class offered free each month.

Deborah Topping was nominated by Creekside teacher Anna Russell and paraprofessional Mary Keiser, who praised not only her top-notch financial management at the largest elementary school in Suffolk, but also how she effortlessly goes above and beyond her bookkeeping duties. While Ms. Topping helps with fundraisers like any school bookkeeper would do, she is “the silent partner on committees such as the March of Dimes, Relay for Life, and the Suffolk Education Foundation. Even though she is not assigned to these committees, she always steps in and assists wherever needed. She will help design t-shirts; decorate showcases; pick out the ‘right’ stuffed animals to sell to students; created Fun Feet Friday to help staff get more involved in fundraising; and even offered to kiss a pig in order to raise money. She makes suggestions and adds her input which is always geared towards what would make our students and staff the most excited.”  In addition, nominators praised her for her kind-hearted willingness to help in the front office whenever she can – always with a big smile on her face.  “Have you ever been to a school with more than 1,000 students during afternoon dismissal? Well, I would like to invite you to Creekside Elementary any day; and I can guarantee that you will see Ms. Topping happily assisting in the front office, answering phone calls, making copies, assisting parents, or even making afternoon announcements.”

May 20 – May 26: Theme topics and themes

If you missed the class after the movie, students worked in groups to complete the following assignment:

The title is Themes

  • List ten theme topics for the novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. For example, one theme topic for this novel is family.
  • List five themes. (Remember that a theme is an insight about life or human nature which gives a story meaning.)

For example, a theme could be that family relationships are the strongest bonds people have with each other.

*** Be careful not to create morals, which tell people what to do, or use clichés like “blood is thicker than water.”
