Best of the Nest Award September

Dear CHMS Families,
As you may recall from last year when this was initiated, our amazing PTO sponsors our staff appreciation award, the “Best of the Nest” with a premium parking spot for the winner! Staff members nominate each other based on:

  • Who has inspired you?
  • Who is making you a better staff member?
  • Who is making your day more enjoyable?
  • Who is doing great things for kids?
  • Who is consistently in your corner?
  • Who is implementing innovative strategies in the building?

This award continues to demonstrate the kind and giving staff we have here at CHMS. The incredible words that are written toward each other in response to the thoughtful actions taken are inspiring.

This month, Mary Youngman (School Nurse) was our lucky winner! Mary is a kind, thoughtful, and considerate individual, who always considers the individual needs of all her patients. Her gentle and caring manner toward all CHMS learners is truly moving. Not only does she assist all students each day, but she also attends our field trips, to help ensure student safety. If you get a moment to congratulate her when you are at CHMS, please do it.

Congratulations again to Mary (and to all of our staff)- the work they do each day is life changing!
