Every year, the Eckstein PTSA presents the Golden Acorn award to one volunteer and one teacher/staff in recognition of dedication and service to students at Eckstein. Thank you to all the students, parents, and staff who sent in nominations. We have a lot to be thankful for at Eckstein!
The 2019-20 Teacher/Staff Golden Acorn winner is Ms. Levine!
Nominations for Ms. Levine, a 6th grade science teacher, mentioned that her class is "interesting and a lot of fun" and that she is "an incredible source of courage, strength, and leadership." People noted that she has supported kids' activism around the crisis of systemic racism and often rode her bike to school. She is a great example for our kids!
The 2019-20 Volunteer Golden Acorn goes to Amy Olason!
Nominations for Amy included the fact that she has volunteered her time EVERY WEEK for the last FOUR YEARS as the parent representative on the Building Leadership Team. She will be missed in the Eckstein Community as her kids graduate!
