Dear Lynbrook Community
Each year, Lynbrook High School and the Fremont Union High School District celebrate Employees of the Year. Last year, the Certificated Staff honoree from Lynbrook, Elizabeth Louie, was chosen as an outstanding educator for Santa Clara County and was celebrated at a special event for Star Teachers in October 2022. It was inspiring to see Liz standing in the deserving company of exceptional teachers from all over the county.
Being honored makes one feel "seen." It affirms all the work and service for others is noticed and appreciated. When you work at Lynbrook, a place full of quality professionals, being recognized is an affirming and humbling experience. I encourage you to nominate a staff member whom you have "seen" shining brightly.
Students, Parents, Staff, and Community members are invited to nominate Lynbrook staff members in the following categories-
----ONE Person-- -Certificated Employee of the Year
(e.g., Teachers, School Counselors, School Psychologists, Librarian)
----ONE Person---- Classified Employee of the Year
(e.g., Office Support Staff, Para-Educators Class Assistants, Custodians, Cafeteria Staff, College & Career Advisors, Data Technician, Registrar, Library Clerk, Student Conduct Liaison, ASB Tech, Print Center Tech, Network Support Specialists, Attendance Tech, Health Clerk, Athletic Trainer, EL Program Assistant, Student Advocate-Therapist, Peer Tutorial Assistant)
These awards are not designed for school management (Principal, Assistant Principals, Facilities Manager, Food Services Manager).
The final selections will be determined by the School Site Council based on input from nomination forms. Be sure to describe what is special about the people/person you are nominating.
- Nominations must be submitted by Monday, January 23, 2023
