  • “She is a valued asset of LES, and makes a difference everyday for our students,” another nomination read.

Every time I interact with her she always conducts herself in a professional manner. Lynne works endlessly to make sure students get the help they need.”

  • “She is always willing to help out in any way she can even if it’s outside of her role. She is a bright spirited person that has a way of finding a resolution to any issue that comes about. Her knowledge of how things need to operate in the office, in SchoolTool and in many facets of the school operation itself makes her an exemplary employee and an asset to the district.”

    Each month, staff members nominate others they believe are going above and beyond, be it a single act of excellence or kindness or a continuous work ethic.

We congratulate these employees on their awards.
