Central Valley Foundation recognizes CV employees

The Central Valley CSD Foundation has recognized Stephanie Szratter, Courtney Crim,  and Holly Markwardt as the Central Valley Central School District Foundation's CVCSD Employees of the first quarter. 

“Now more than ever, we are happy to publicly recognize faculty and staff members who go above and beyond for our students,” said JoAnn Duga, Foundation president. “Almost all of 2020 has been incredibly challenging for our educators and support staff. We hope they realize that their commitment to our students does not go unnoticed.”

The recognition program, which was implemented during the 2019-2020 school year, acknowledges up to four students and employees each quarter with the hope that there will be recipients from each school building: Fisher and Barringer Elementary Schools, Jarvis Middle School, and CVA High School, as well as the CVCSD bus garage.

This quarter's employee recipients were: Courtney Crim, Barringer Road Elementary School library teacher assistant; Holly Markwardt, Fisher Elementary School library teacher assistant; and Stephanie Szratter, fourth grade teacher at Barringer Road Elementary School. No nominations were received for Jarvis Middle School, CVA High School, or the CVCSD bus garage. 

While the Foundation did not receive any nominations for students within the district, Duga acknowledged the hard work students have been putting in during such a challenging school year.

“They’ve adapted to an ever-changing way of learning whether it’s in-classroom, hybrid, or remote,” Duga said. “We know it hasn’t been easy, but we are proud of all our students and their parents for working together to make the best of these unprecedented times.”

Community members who would like to nominate a faculty or staff member for the quarterly recognition can find the nomination form at www.cvalleycsdfoundation.org or on the Central Valley Central School District Foundation Facebook page. Selected employees and students will be announced near the end of each marking period.
