OCTOBER COUGARS OF THE MONTH &
TARGET TEACHER OF THE MONTH
Congratulations to our October Cougars of the Month: Jill
Huckels, the Student A.C.T.I.O.N. Task Force, Michael Lesperance, Jennifer
Sarro and our Target Teacher of the Month: Lalo Flores. Winners received a gift card, a certificate
and their pictures are displayed outside of the DECA store.
Our first student Cougar of the Month is senior Jill
Huckels. Jill has found a way to help
her classmates while also helping those in need. This year, Jill has taken senior photos for
her classmates so that they can be featured in the yearbook. For her services, Jill has collected a
nominal fee, which she has then turned around and donated to charity. Her
nominator said, “Jill’s selflessness and desire to use her talents and
abilities to help those around her are worthy of celebration. She did not do this to be recognized, but her
kindness is absolutely worthy of recognition.”
Thanks Jill for being such an excellent representative of Cougar
spirit! We are proud of you!
Congratulations to our October Cougars of the Month—the
members of the Student A.C.T.I.O.N. Task Force.
The 25 members of the Task Force have given up time to receive training
and have gone into classrooms to help teach their peers how to be UPstanders in
the face of bullying. One of their
nominators wrote, “Bullying is a problem and these students are committed to
doing something about it. Teaching
people what to do when they see bullying and giving them options is so powerful
coming from students who are respected in the building.” Thank you for helping
to make CT safer and more welcoming to all students. Congratulations Task Force!!
Congratulations to our October Staff Cougar of the Month,
Michael Lesperance. Michael works very
hard to keep the building running and in good working order. His nominators stated, “After daylight
savings time, Michael went around and changed over 200 clocks in the building.
He had to take out the batteries to get them to reset properly. In addition, he
helped with the Chrome Book delivery and clean up. He is always so helpful. He responds to the
building needs in a timely fashion. He has a great attitude. He is just an
all-around great CTH employee!” Thank
you for all that you do for CTHS Michael!
Congratulations to Jennifer Sarro, a faculty Cougar of the
Month. Jen has been active in developing
curriculum, volunteering as a cheer coach, and helping students who are
struggling through her role as a Trail Boss.
One of her nominators wrote, “I think Jen Sarro would be a great Cougar
of the Month. Jen is a fabulous role
model for our students and helps with the cheer team. She is a
leader within our health department, as she has assisted with
district level alignment of standards.”
Another nominator stated, “Jen has been doing great work as a Trail
Boss. Her efforts are keeping students on track and helping them work toward
success.” Thank you for giving so much of your time to help our students
succeed—it is appreciated.
Congratulations to our Target Teacher of the Month for
October, Spanish teacher Lalo Flores.
Lalo has embraced the use of technology in his classroom to increase
student learning and continuously takes a leadership role in his department by
helping others incorporate more technology into their classrooms. One of his nominators stated, “Lalo Flores is
an awesome Spanish teacher! He works very hard to integrate technology
into his classroom in a meaningful way. He is constantly working on
things for his class and coming up with new games, project ideas, and ways to
integrate culture into the curriculum. Lalo is generous in our department
in sharing his genius and taking the time to introduce us to new technologies
as well! I am so happy to get to work with such a great department!” Thank you for helping to inspire our students
Lalo—we are lucky that you are a part of CT!
