We are thrilled to recognize 5th grade teacher, Lynn Tharrett as the first recipient of our Jake's Good Things Happen Person of the Month Award.
Lynn is battling cancer for the third time, and yet she always makes time to put her students, and other people, before herself. She truly embodies the "other people matter" mindset.
Jake's on the Water is thrilled to announce that Mr. Sean Scordo has been chosen as a "Jake's Good Things" award recipient for November.
According to Ms. Gray, Lawrence Avenue Elementary Principal, "Sean's energy and enthusiasm make our school a place students can't wait to get to each day. He can often be found dancing on the sidewalk as the buses unload in the morning, hosting student council meetings before the day even begins or sometimes you just might find him emceeing our school-wide assemblies. His passion, dedication, energy and enthusiasm help remind us what good things can happen with the right mindset!"
Sean, we are so proud to recognize you for the impact you are having on the students at Lawrence Avenue! You are a hero!
Our December award winner is the AAK Art Teacher, Miranda Brosell.
Here are a few things people had to say about her...
"Miranda is such a creative and kind person. She has helped with countless initiatives from P2 to fundraising to just making our hallways look beautiful and anywhere in between. She does not bat an eye when asked to do something else on top of all that she has to do already. The best part is that she is always doing so with a smile on her face and a calm, cool, collected attitude. I aspire to have the same mindset as her and I truly look up to what an amazing person she is. I'm so glad to work with Miranda and good things should happen to her!"
"Miranda goes above and beyond her duties. Her artwork is amazing and she is constantly adding creativity to AAK . Students really enjoyed the mustache activity that was held today. The banners she has created with students for Jonathan and Rachel are amazing. Miranda has a smile on her face , a kind word for everyone and helps AAK continue to be a great place to be."
Thank you again for all you do for our community. We look forward to working with you more in the future!
