Good Apple Awards
What is a Good Apple Award?
In 1988, the administration at Monroe #1 BOCES developed the ‘Good Apple’ Award program to acknowledge staff who “make a difference” in our school community, and to recognize staff members who demonstrate the qualities of the BOCES vision: innovation, collaboration and leadership.
The program offers staff the opportunity to nominate colleagues whom they believe have gone above and beyond the nature of their job. Individual nominations are published in the staff newsletter and in Staff Zone with a short description of the nomination of the staff member and their achievement. Nominees also receive an “I Make A Difference at BOCES” pin.
October 2018 Good Apple Award
Kathryn Smith nominated Jen Evershed (Creekside School) for a Good Apple Award. Kathryn said, “Jen is such a valuable asset in our classroom. The past two weeks have been challenging due to staff shortage. Jen has stepped up working with several students and taking initiative to keep students engaged and maintaining child focus. Such willing dedication and support for other staff in the room I feel should be recognized! Jen is such a wonderful role model for all involved.”
