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.

Day in and day out, Rose (Rosie) does an amazing job supporting communications districtwide. Her relentless attention to detail ensures that anything she works on will be done excellently. She expends extra effort on everything she does to make sure it is the best it can possibly be.

Dave Larsen receiving a ducky award from Superintendent Enfield.

Dave is the lead custodian at Parkside Elementary. He is kind and a hard worker. If there is ever an emergency, he responds quickly and with wit. His cheerful demeanor is an asset to our building and we are lucky to have him.

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.

DoTS would like to extend a High 5 to those that gave of their precious time prior to the start of school to stuff new laptop bags with new Chromebooks, earbuds, etc. to be ready for all of our middle school students. This task could not have been completed on time without the help from all of you.
