Yay of the Day awardee, Nikki ALissa Rossi of Pemberton Elementary School, receiving her swag bag.

YAY LISA ROSSI! Lisa Rossi, an art teacher at Pemberton Elementary School, is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored her recently.

YAYWORTHY: Nominator Cindy Case said: “She is the most genuine, caring and fun teacher. My kids adore Mrs. Rossi and look forward to art class every single week. She always has a smile on her face and makes each kid feel so special. They look up to her and will even seek her out for a smile.

“Mrs. Rossi will send extra art supplies home with my kids because they loved a lesson so much and wanted to do more at home. She has also given up her free time to brighten kids’ days with a special art lesson. She is one of a kind and is loved by all who know her.”

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