The Cedarhome Elementary staff nominated Kelly and Mary and in their nomination said, "These two people daily give 110% of an efort to keep our school in tip-top shape, and are always, always ready and willing to lend a hand with special tasks, even if it means going above and beyond their normal duties!"
The Utsalady Elementary Learning Assistance Program (LAP) Para Educators, Heidi Harter, Dianne Rice, Ann Peterson, and Sonia Kline, received the Classified Employee of the Month Award for March, nominated by Julie Knight, UES reading/math support teacher.

Mrs. Knight said, that Sonia, Heidi, Ann, and Dianne get right to the heart of what a student needs to learn, and they know how to get the students to practice a skill in a way that is enjoyable and the students are able to remember.
The Classified Employee of the Month recognition award is given monthly throughout the school year. The awards are sponsored by Sterling Savings Bank (Stanwood branch) and Lenz Enterprises, in partnership with Dos Reales and Stanwood Cinemas.
