Congratulations to Hawthorne Custodian Ramon Alcantar and Sandburg Educational Assistant Chris Malave were honored with the D205 Shining Star recognition at the November 14 Board of Education meeting by Board President Kara Caforio. The internal recognition is awarded by the BOE based upon nomination for exemplary performance by a staff member.

 

Read Ramon's Nomination:

 

Nominated by Tim Riordan and Elizabeth Franks

 

Ramon truly exemplifies the true meaning of going above and beyond, dedicating his work each and every day to the students at Hawthorne.

 

When a special needs student was having difficulty carrying a lunch tray from the lunch line to her table, her teacher looked to find adapted lunch trays with handles to assist.  When she was unable to find anything that met her needs, she conferred with the OT who then asked Ramon if he had extra cabinet handles in the basement, not really knowing what would be done with them. An hour or so later, Ramon came into the classroom with an adapted lunch tray that he had built with handles he had found on an old toy kitchen in the basement. 

 

This student can now independently carry her lunch tray from the lunch line all the way across the gym to her lunch table and set it down, completely unassisted.  Although this may have seemed like a small undertaking for Ramon, it was a big moment for the student and will have a big impact on her for years to come.

 

Read Chris' Nomination:

 

 

 

Nominated by Jason Vanderplow, Jeff Gail, Linda Fehrenbacher

 

Each and every day Chris demonstrates an above and beyond demeanor and attitude whether it is moving an immobile student from a wheelchair to calming a student who is reacting to a situation. His work is unique with the students he serves – whether it is in toileting, feeding, changing students, helping them with functional life skills or academics, he is respectful, dignified and exemplary at what he does and who he is.

 

His job is extremely important to meet the unique and sometimes complicated needs of the students.  He always looks for and assumes what is best for students.  He works well with a large team of teachers and assistants.  He makes everyone better through his commitment to those who need him!

In April 2018, NMSC identified the 50,000 highest scorers and notified their high schools. Some 16,000 of those high performers were recently designated Semifinalists on a state representational basis. Their schools were notified a few weeks ago and NMSC released their names to news media on September 12. Only Semifinalists have an opportunity to continue in the Merit Scholarship® competition and advance to Finalist standing by meeting a number of additional requirements.
