YAY APRIL PRENTISS! April Prentiss of Highland Springs Elementary School is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored April recently at Highland Springs Elementary School.

YAYWORTHY— Nominator Sherita Frederick said:
“She is such an amazing teacher and is very patient with her students on a daily basis! She takes her time to help her students navigate through Clever and Schoology, to ensure every student is on the same page and can follow along with lessons and is ready to learn. She loves her students dearly and it shows! If you ask me how I know, I work from home in the same space as my daughter while she learns virtually and I witness April’s greatness!

“There are examples of this EVERY DAY! Her overall daily attitude just exudes positivity and speaks volumes in itself! She always comes online greeting her students with a smile by name individually and asks them how they are doing. This alone could mean a lot to children who may not have someone do that or even care to know in their own households. It’s the small things that sometimes have the greatest impact on our kids.”

Thank you for all you do, April, to make a positive difference and move HCPS forward!
