Rose Lepley

Thank you so much for stepping in and covering class cohorts when we have closures with such a positive attitude.  You are always so positive and go out of your way to help – all classes, all students, however needed.  I appreciated watching you working with a student in Classroom 15 during a District virtual tour.  You are always so patient and caring.  Thank you for being so flexible, available, and willing to step in whenever needed.  I also appreciate you being proactive in the organization and upkeep of the Library.

Amber Nicklas

Thank you so much for all you do to support the school program.  I appreciated your guidance and leadership in the implementation of Planbook.  Thank you for providing training to your colleagues and then helping to problem solve any issues that may have arisen.  I truly appreciate your “how can I help?” attitude.  Not only do you ask, but you mean it!!  You’re the best.  Keep up the great work!

Miona Price

Not only is Miona always willing to help and be a team player, she recently stepped in to support a youth being transported to the ER in another county. This not only required Miona to make the trip, but also required last minute adjustments to her schedule that had impacts beyond her commitment to Oak Grove. Miona made the necessary adjustments and even stayed beyond her requirement to ensure a smooth and safe transition. This was not only a strong reflection of her own willingness and commitment to safety and care but also a strong representation of Oak Grove’s commitment to Accountability, Restorative Relationships, Leadership and a Pursuit of excellence. Thank you for meeting this MOMENT!
