Each month all staff members have the opportunity to nominate their peers for the School District of Arcadia Stronger Together Award. The purpose of the Stronger Together Award is to recognize employees who serve our district in an exceptional manner by collaborating with staff, inspiring students, and engaging families. Congratulations to Samantha Putz, Little Hedgehogs Teacher at Little Raiders Childcare and recipient of the January Stronger Together Award.
Samantha welcomes families into her classroom and assures that their children are well taken care of at the childcare center. She has built strong relationships with her students and their families. Samantha goes above and beyond for her students by providing learning opportunities with a variety of sensory play, art projects, items to explore, and daily dance parties.
Samantha is a great role model and has a contagious personality that makes learning fun in her classroom. Her artistic talent is spread throughout the childcare center, check out the wooden signs outside of each classroom. Jolynn Bourland, Childcare Center Director, stated “Samantha Putz goes above and beyond to provide the best care and the best activities for our older infant classroom (Hedgehogs) and overall for our whole center. She has a heart of gold and her dedication to Little Raiders and this community is admirable. The connections Samantha makes with each child, parent, and staff member are lifelong. When we count our blessings here at Little Raiders, we count Miss Sami twice.”
The School District of Arcadia is grateful for Samantha and thanks her for her dedication to the Arcadia community.
