CONGRATULATIONS to Scott Kirk, Lead Custodian at Nike Elementary, for being nominated AND selected as this week's Great Employees Serving the District award winner! Kirk 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, "Mr. Scott is a wonderful addition to our school for more reasons than just his custodial leadership. Mr. Scott knows a lot of the students by name and greets them when he sees them. He develops routines with students when there are repeated instances of being near one another. Mr. Scott always has a great attitude and is willing to help us out when needed. Best of all, he's taken a student under his wing who needed the life skill of learning to do laundry. Mr. Scott takes this student and teaches her to do laundry, but also mentors her and coaches her in being a great student. He is an important part of her day and many of our days." ~ Mandy Soetaert, Teacher

Congratulations, Scott!
