    Sparkling Examples of Accomplished Skillful Talented And Radiant Staff

    Good Spirit School Division employees are valued for their hard work and dedication to student success. The Board of Education recognizes the amazing work employees are doing on a daily basis and acknowledges it is the acts of kindness and the extra special personal touch for students that make our division extraordinary. All Good Spirit School Division employees are eligible to be presented this very special award.

    The Sea Stars employee recognition awards program is based on the starfish story "Making a Difference": "An old man walked up a shore littered with thousands of starfish, beached and dying after a storm. A young man was picking them up and flinging them back into the ocean. "Why do you bother?" the old man scoffed. "You're not saving enough to make a difference." The young man picked up another starfish and sent it spinning back to the water. "Made a difference to that one," he said.
