PTA Service Award Given to Norma McConnell

Ginnie Snyder

 Teachers appreciate the dedication and kindness Norma gives each day to her work. Norma takes the time to talk to the students about taking care of the restrooms and the class rooms. She started a program of rewarding students for helping in the classroom, by personally making wonderful Calendar charts with decorative stickers which she posts on the front white board. Each day she puts a sticker on the chart if students have picked up pencils and paper and cleaned up. Then at the end of each month she leaves the students a small treat to show her appreciation to them for their help.
