Dolhonde Support Person of the Year

A copy of the announcement Mrs. Bradley made over the intercom to celebrate our Support Person of the Year:


Good afternoon, Cardinals! This afternoon, I have a very special announcement to make. For the past couple of weeks, our faculty & staff have been casting votes to decide who will serve as our outstanding support staff for the upcoming school year. But before we go there, I just wanted to say “thank you” to ALL of our support staff members who serve our Cardinal students each & every day. We are so grateful for all that they do to help our Cardinal students reach success! 

Before I introduce to you our winner, I would like to announce our runner-up. Our runner-up has a beautiful smiling face that greets every person on our school campus. Can you guess? Congrats to Mrs. Laurie Pelanne, our school secretary, who is this year’s outstanding support employee runner-up.

Now, I would like to take this opportunity to tell you all a little bit about this year’s winner...

Coworkers describe this person as being helpful and cheery. She is very patient, kind, and so very deserving. She has dedicated so much time and love to Ella Dolhonde. Coworkers say she is such a wonderful person who genuinely cares for everyone. She goes above and beyond for the students and shows them so much love. This person is a tremendous support in the classroom. Her years of service to our students and school are valued and should be celebrated. She always has a smile on her face and is extremely dedicated to her students! 

Congratulations to this year’s Cardinal Outstanding Support Employee - Pre-K paraprofessional Ms. Diane Barnett!!!
