We appreciate our volunteers. We thank everyone who volunteers their time and talents to help our students in our school communities. We want to acknowledge their incredible efforts and say thank you.
Nominating a volunteer for an ‘Inspire’ award in March is an excellent way to recognize them. Each month we are encouraging the nomination of a specific group in our Public Schools Branch family. This month we will highlight the work of our volunteers. For many students, their efforts and kindness make the school experience more enjoyable and pleasant. Show your appreciation to those who give freely of their time and energy by nominating a volunteer this month.
The success of all our schools rests greatly on the support and dedication of parent and community volunteers. It is so inspiring to see parents, extended family and community members reading with children, helping them and their teachers with a host of activities like Science or Heritage Fairs, and sharing other talents that enrich student learning. Those who volunteer their time to accompany students on field trips, attend Home and School Association events, help out with a sport, music, or drama group, and support school based initiatives like breakfast or lunch programs, send a clear message to our PSB students that they have an extended school family that cares about them.
The ‘Inspire’ award is one way the Public Schools Branch is using to recognize members of our educational community for the inspirational things they do to help us all experience success and make our schools great places to work and learn. Anyone can nominate an employee, student, volunteer, parent or community member; and the criterion for nomination is simple – they just need to have inspired others. To nominate someone, simply take a minute or two to complete the on-line nomination form. Nominees will receive a small PSB recognition package and a note of thanks for contributing to the PSB community. Over 370 ‘Inspire’ Awards have been delivered so far! Thank you for doing your part to nominate deserving candidates.
