October 2015: Congrats to Tom O'Brien  of NTHS and Jeannette Burrier for their examples of Generosity and Compassion!

This year, in place of “Cause for Applause” and “You Made My Day”, we will have one brand new Employee Recognition program – “Compassion All-Stars!” Here’s how it works: Each month, we will ask you to keep an eye out for staff members who truly go above and beyond and exhibit an attribute of compassion. Each month will focus on a different attribute:
September: Commitment
October: Generosity

November: Empathy

December: Patience

January: Courage

February: Diversity and Equity

March: Kindness and Respect

                                                                      April: Humility

                                                                      May: Community and Environment

                                                                      June: Understanding

Human Resources will send out monthly reminder emails informing you of each month’s attribute of focus. All nominees will be recognized on our website and will receive a Compassion All Star Team lanyard and certificate. A monthly winner will be selected (similar to Cause for Applause). The winner will be honored in their building staff meeting and win a special prize pack! At the end of the year, we will invite the monthly Compassion All-Star winners to a School Board meeting. From that group, a Compassionate All-Star of the year will be selected and he/she will win a Special Grand Prize package to celebrate all their hard work and compassionate service to our community on behalf of North Thurston Public Schools!

We are now accepting nominations for December! December's compassionate attribute of focus will be Patience. For December, let us recognize those who regularly demonstrate patience in their interactions with all. Those who take care to be intentional and kind with their words and their actions, even in tense or frustrating situations. Let us show our appreciation for those we admire for their ability to persevere through difficulties and do so with a positive attitude and set this example for our students and all of us.

Anyone can submit a nomination- staff, administrators, volunteers, parents, community members, anyone! We do ask that you please nominate individuals only and not groups of people. To nominate someone, please click here.


**Nominations are due by the 14th of December so hurry and get them in!**
