Yay of the Day awardee, Saba Tariq of Skipwith Elementary School, receiving her swag bag.

YAY SABA TARIQ! Saba Tariq, an instructional assistant at Skipwith Elementary School, is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored her recently at the school.

YAYWORTHY: Nominator Brooke Johnson said: “She goes out of her way to look for ways to help in the classroom each and every day. Whether running a small group, assisting a student with make-up work, or simply helping pass out papers, Saba does it all with a smile on her face. Everyone should have a Mrs. Saba in their room!

“Once she stayed late (as she does many days in the classroom) to help read aloud a test that a student had missed while in quarantine. She willingly stayed past her time so that the student could get caught up and to mark off a task on my long to-do list. Every day, she works hard with our students, and if there is even a moment of down time, she asks what else she can do to help. Mrs. Saba is such a positive addition to our room and I quite literally do not know how I would manage without her!”

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