Rees Elementary was honored last night with not only ONE but TWO Peak Award Winners. Our amazing secretary Mrs. Nikki Thomas was nominated by Mr. Gull. "“Nikki is everything you want in a secretary. She is kind, happy, professional, organized and she just gets it done! She is always so positive and happy with everyone that enters the office at Rees. She is quick to respond to the needs of parents, students, teachers and staff members. She has an incredible laugh that fills the room and just makes you feel good when you talk with her. Nikki brightens the school with her presence. Many people come to her, and she is right there to lift them up or keep them smiling. Nikki sets a professional, positive tone and is efficient in her duties. Nikki will take care of you when you visit Rees Elementary.”
Mrs. Burton is new to Rees, and has been here this year as a part time Resource teacher. She has been a wonderful addition to our SPED department and we love having her here. Mrs. Burton splits her time between Rees and Art City, and her principal at Art City, Mrs. Muirbrook, nominated her for the PEAK award. "Karen absolutely loves her job. She is very experienced and knowledgeable about special education students and student development. She is willing to share her knowledge and expertise with all faculty members at any time. She has volunteered her time in other classrooms offering intervention ideas and techniques to teachers. She not only cares about her students but each student and staff member at Art City. Karen truly exemplifies positive energy and kindness.”
Congratulations to both of these very deserving ladies!!!
