November's Little Red Sneaker Award recipients are Mrs. Kaitlin Smith and Mrs. Julie Vereschagin and Mr. Brent Maxwell.
Mr. Stone nominated Mrs. Smith and had this to say "To me, the obvious choice is Kaity Smith. She is never afraid to ask questions and ask for help. She is equally helpful with sharing resources, strategies and funny stories; I've said before that I feel like she's a veteran teacher with her knowledgeable insights and sharing valuable resources. Her strong work ethic is apparent by her abilities to stay focused on tasks and participates fully in school PLC. Kaity is kind, courteous, professional, and I can clearly see she loves the students. They feel safe because they are safe.
Miss Bright and Mrs Thompson nominated Mrs. Vereschagin and Mr. Maxwell. This iswhat they had to say: "Though they do not work directly together, Mrs. Julie Vereschagin and Mr. Brent Maxwell teach almost every student in our school on a weekly basis, through their involvement and work in Music and Physical Education.
Mrs. Vereschagin not only helped plan and prepare the students for our Remembrance Day assembly, but she also guided students in her spare time in Recorder Karate, Junior and Senior Choir, and is preparing grade 3 students for their upcoming Christmas concert, while also beginning the work for the spring play. Her dedication to music education is evident in her students' love for and growth in musicality. Plus, she has a beautiful smile.
Mr. Maxwell is always on the go, teaching large groups of loud and energetic children, and also running the lunchtime intramural program. He introduces the students to engaging and challenging games and activities that encourage health and well-being and build good sportsmanship. Plus, he has a handsome smile.
We are so lucky to have both of these talented teachers running our options programs"
Congratulations to these awesome teachers!
