GESD Recognition (February 5, 2021)

CONGRATULATIONS to McKayla Haskins, Reading Specialist at Madison Elementary, for being nominated AND selected as this week's Great Employees Serving the District award winner!  McKayla is being recognized as a result of consistently demonstrating the ability to connect with students and always exceeding expectations as they relate to serving our student body, fellow employees, and the community at large.

Specifically, "October is Dyslexia Awareness Month.  Each day, Mrs. Haskins sent out a link with information about dyslexia and a question for the staff to answer if they wanted.  These daily emails often included a brief article or a video to help our staff develop their own understanding and knowledge around Dyslexia and how they can support these striving readers.  If a staff member completed at least 10 tasks throughout the month, they were entered into a drawing to win one of three wonderful prizes!  The more tasks they completed, the more opportunities they had to win!  The person who completed the most daily tasks received the Grand Prize! Below is the calendar with live links to help you learn more about Dyslexia and how to support students who display these behaviors.  Mrs. Haskins used this calendar as a guide for the daily challenges.  Thank you to Mrs. Haskins for helping our staff grow and learn to help support our Bears."         ~ Matt Wachel - MDE Principal

Congratulations, McKayla!
