YAY JACK BOND! Jack Bond of Nuckols Farm Elementary School is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored Jack recently at Nuckols Farm.

YAYWORTHY— Nominator Devi Balagopal said:

“He is a super-cool teacher who my daughter loves, and he takes extra effort and time to make sure that all his students are well taken care of! He makes learning fun. “Mr. Bond has a program called ‘Bond Bucks’ where the students get points when they complete their work on time, finish all work and behave well. My daughter loves this and works hard to collect the Bond Bucks each week. Once a month, Mr. Bond holds an auction, where the kids can bid for a few items they like. And the best part is that Mr. Bond doesn’t leave the items for the kids to pick up from school: he drives to each of the kids’ houses on a weekend or holiday and delivers them personally to each child. That’s a solid three or four hours that he spents outside his teaching time, and when it’s his day off! I am so glad that he is my daughter’s teacher, and kudos to him for taking this extra time and effort to make our kids’ learning fun and extra special.”

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