National Occupational Therapy Month – a note from PSD Integrated Services Director, Sarah Belleau

Hello!

This month is National Occupational Therapy month!  I celebrate YOU, our Poudre School District Occupational Therapists!

Your work to support students with disabilities helps them grow, change and become as independent as possible.  OT in our schools is a key service in assuring that our students not only have access to the classroom but is also key to the overall development of a student in their school years.  Thank you for your commitment to being a school-based OT!

Have a great week!

Mary Hull Award Recipients Announced!

Hello, PSD Community and Staff~

Through an independent committee, the Mary Hull Award recipients have been selected and are pictured and listed in bold/italics below.  At the Mary Hull Awards Banquet, each nominee and recipient will be honored through quotes from their nomination packet, a photo gallery and time on stage.  Therefore, if one of the nominees or recipients works in your school/department, we encourage you to attend the awards evening in their support with a group from your school.  Overall, the evening is a heartwarming celebration of the talented staff in Poudre School District.

The Mary Hull Awards banquet reservations are now available through your school’s office manager.  Please join us to honor and celebrate all staff who were nominated for and/or are the recipient of one of these awards!  It is a wonderful evening with students assisting in the event. Tickets to the event are $20, and this includes dinner.  Reservations must be made by April 18, 2019.
