YAY REBECCA JONES! Rebecca Jones of Short Pump Elementary School is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored the school counselor recently at the school.

YAYWORTHY: Nominator Ashley Council said: “Mrs. Jones is there day in and day out, supporting our Stingers’ social and emotional needs. She juggles so many duties as a counselor, from teaching guidance lessons weekly to checking in on students, staff members and parents. Most importantly, she is supporting the social and emotional needs of students, which has become a vital component to this school year.”

“Mrs. Jones worked with a family that was transitioning back to the ‘normal’ school environment. She took the time to listen and collaborate with the family, and supported the needs of the student with a kind heart and an open ear. A warm phone call from Mrs. Jones shows our community the love she has for our Stinger families and the needs of all our students. She is simply the BEST!”

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