Quyana: An Alaskan Thank You

  • Quyana to nurses at health services! I want to say thank you/Quyana to the wonderful nurses at ASD Health Services.  I sent them a massive amount of health related paperwork that needed to be entered into Zangle right away.  I needed their assistance due to the large amount of health paperwork that is generated at the high school level.  In addition, I was experiencing significant hand numbness which hampered my own ability for data entry.  Their willingness and their timeliness was exceptional.  They really helped me out!

    - Stephanie Wilhelm, Bartlett High, peer

  • Quyana to Bryan Stenhejem, Tony Moore, Brandon Kennedy at grounds crew/facility maitenance! Many thanks to the grounds crew that worked on the Kincaid Garden Project this summer.Particular thanks to Tony Moore, Brandon Kennedy and Bryan Stenhejem. These guys are passionate about their jobs and take great pride in their work. The garden project is a great asset to the Kincaid community! 

    - Judy Campbell, teacher/grandparent community member

  • Quyana to Anya Kean at Librarian at Rabbit Creek Elementary ! A huge thanks to Anya for innovative library lessons for our LifeSkills students! She truly thinks outside the box in order to connect the lessons for the students. Each week she offers a hands-on small building project, first reading stories about the correlating topic (i.e. build a birdhouse, truck, boat, etc) The kids love it and look forward to library. Last spring she had them starting bulbs and consequently we had beautiful flower beds through to this fall! Thank you Anya Kean! 

    - Patricia Giralt, LifeSkills TA

  • Quyana to Larry Nevada at S.A.V.E. High School! Mr. Nevada has been an invaluable next-door-teacher in helping me get the APEX system set up for my new classroom.  He is consistently cheerful, helpful, friendly, and patient, and is a consummate computer master.  We are very blessed by his expertise and kind attitude!  Thanks, Larry!

  • Quyana to Staff at S.A.V.E. High/Continuation Program! A BIG thank you to the incredible S.A.V.E. staff for the amazing welcome I am experiencing in my new transfer position this year.  Everyone here is consistently friendly, supportive, kind, helpful, and welcoming.  The calm, sincere atmosphere here is a great tribute to our administrative leadership.  Thank you, Ms. Parker and staff!

  • Quyana to Theresa Reich at Trailside/Spring Hill/Rilke Schule/SEAS! Theresa Reich was the lead in hosting a special curriculum camp last summer to prepare lessons and activities for Anchorages Centennial.  Theresa was an exceptional leader.  She guided the teachers, edited and produced an exceptional 147-page resource with activities and lesson plans for all teachers and schools to use in preparation for ASD's Centennial Celebration that will be held from February 16- March 6, 2015.   Theresa also helped train teachers to present the lessons with over 175 teachers being trained at both the elementary and secondary cross-district events. Theresa was the catalyst that made this possible.

I would just like to thank ms gains and ms lowe for all their hard work and always having a smile on their face when I come in to Fairview. with any questions or concerns they always direct me to the correct person.  They are always so positive and supportive throughout the years my children have went to Fairview. I have a child in 6th grade and in 4th grade and those two ladies are always so amazing. They always make me feel so welcome. I just wanted to recognize them and to say thank you for all you do. Not only for my children but for the school.
