Best of the Nest Award

Dear CHMS Families,
As you may recall, 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 inspiring, 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 inspirational.

This month, Mrs. Ele Santini (7th grade Social Worker) was our lucky winner! A few comments shared about her were:

“Ele is a constant ray of sunshine for anyone who walks into her office. She’s just the best and we are so lucky to have her!”

“Ele is always going above and beyond for our students and our school. Not only is she an effective and proactive social worker for our students, but she often provides free therapy for the teachers, too!”

“Ele is always thinking about students’ feelings and well-being.”

“Congratulations again to Mrs. Santini and all of our nominated staff members!”
