Celebrating Our Outstanding Staff


The Ducky Awards is Superintendent Susan Enfield's fun way of recognizing staff for going above and beyond to advance Our Promise of knowing every student by name, strength and need. To nominate a colleague, send an email to Superintendent Enfield with the name of the individual and a brief paragraph on how they deliver on our promise.

Laurie Morrison with Susan and her Ducky Award

Laurie is smart , experienced and thoughtful in her leadership approach. Her ability to address complex and adaptive leadership problems is demonstrated consistently. Her instructional leadership knowledge is deep and connects current research and experience.

Erin with Susan and her Ducky

Erin has been an advocate for students from the day she joined our staff here. She creates a safe and welcoming classroom where students learn to feel comfortable expressing a side of themselves they may not have explored in several years.

High Fives

Highline High Fives are a way for our staff to celebrate each other. Do you have a colleague who goes above and beyond? Do you have a coworker who deserves some extra recognition? Show them some appreciation by nominating them for a Highline High Five. We'll post your nominations right here on our staff kudos page.
