I hope everyone is having a great week! I would like for you all to join me in congratulating the Faculty and Staff Members of the Month for September. These outstanding team members have gone above and beyond the call of duty for the betterment of our district. You are all invited to join us on Monday night at 6:00 at the administration building to recognize them. When you see them in your hallways or on your campuses please congratulate them.
Elementary Faculty Member of the Month – Congratulations to Mr. Blair Schlatter, 5th grade teacher, for being selected as the Faculty Member of the Month. He serves as a role model to our young male students as well as to any teacher. He has been very flexible the last several months. He readily agreed to change teaching content to meet the needs of our new schedule, he has diligently worked to understand and use our new LMS and has helped his team through this as well. Mr. Schlatter also took the initiative to align our Social Studies Weekly resource to our YAG. He communicates often and effectively with families through a very informative newsletter and is always willing to help them when needed. He looks for ways to use his CILD training and infuse technology throughout his lessons. His expectations for himself and his students is to be engaged lifelong learners. Mr. Schlatter is truly deserving of the honor of being selected as the Faculty Member of the Month! Congratulations!!
Secondary Faculty Member of the Month – Congratulations to Mrs. Rebekah Patrick, ELAR teacher at the middle school, on being the Secondary Faculty Member of the Month. At China Spring Middle School, we are always working on demonstrating our #CSMSPRIDE. Our focus at this time is the “P” which stands for perseverance. Mrs. Rebekah Patrick embodies perseverance every day as she works with a smile on her face with both students and staff. When you walk in the door of her classroom, you are immediately greeted with a smile. She has the mindset of no matter what the challenge that she will remain positive and find the good in
all. While she has only been on our campus for a little over a year, she continually creates a positive environment for her students. You will also find her working well past her contracted hours to assist other teachers in creating engaging lessons so that all students have a positive learning experience. Mrs. Patrick also attends multiple extracurricular activities cheering on all of our students outside the normal school day. She has an amazing superpower of being a mother of two and a coach’s wife. Mrs. Patrick is a champion for all students. We are so lucky to have Mrs. Patrick on the middle school campus. Congratulations!
Staff Member of the Month – Congratulations to Ms. Judy Kemp for being selected as the Staff Member of the Month. Mrs. Kemp, the China Spring Elementary Registrar, is a rock star! The beginning of the year is a very busy time for a registrar, and Judy does this with a smile! She hand enters in every Pre-K, Kindergarten student, and new to the district student, as well as handles returning students. This is a HUGE task and Judy does a fantastic job! Once school starts Mrs. Kemp handles our attendance, both online and in person, and she has yet again adapted and figured out ways to make this process smooth and efficient! If anyone needs anything Judy is the
kind of person that will stop what she is doing, even if swamped, to help someone else out. We are blessed to have Judy as part of our China Spring Elementary Family and she is a perfect example of a Staff Member of the Month! Congratulations Mrs. Kemp!
