Spring is officially here! March 20, 2023 marks the Vernal or Spring Equinox; the first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. This means time when the sun's direct rays are is most equal to the time without direct rays, post-Winter Solstice. Simply stated, after today, daylight will continue to last longer than not, until the Summer Solstice in June. Now is the time to enjoy the longer days and new life that comes with Spring!

Education Support Professional Spotlight Amber Benson, ILC Paraeducator Although only in her second school year in the Byron Kibler Elementary Independent Learning Center, Covington native Amber Benson was made for it. In the years leading up to coming to ESD Amber worked with children: initially toddlers, then Pre-K, so an elementary ILC was a natural transition. While working with her students, Amber's love for what she does and who she works with shines through. “There is always something new [in the ILC] - the challenges and progress of the students. They each have so much more to offer than most people get to see!” Being in the classroom has inspired her to return to complete her Masters Degree in Special Education, which coursework will begin in May. “I am hoping to learn as much as I can, while I can before starting my Masters. My goal is to someday have my own ILC or Resource classroom,” Amber explains. Already having a Bachelors Degree under her belt, Amber seamlessly steps into the role of substitute teacher in her current, and other classrooms as needed. A Masters Degree isn’t the only thing on the horizon for her, though. Amber will be getting married in July where she, her fiance and his two children spend as much time as possible - camping outdoors. They have planned an intimate forest campsite wedding to celebrate with their closest loved ones. #ESPWeek2023 #learnleadimpactESD #aprenderliderarimpactoESD

Education Support Professional Spotlight Annette Vranizan, Student Information Systems Specialist Annette is originally from Enumclaw, and although she spent time growing up on both sides of the bridge - a true Hornet at heart - is an EHS graduate. After taking time to live and work elsewhere, she moved back to Enumclaw to raise her son and daughter in the town she loves, with family and friends close by, and getting back to being in the beautiful outdoors. When Annette’s children were young, she enjoyed volunteering in their Kindergarten classes, which led to her 15-year career in ESD. Now, as the Student Information Systems Specialist (Skyward), Annette has done a little bit of everything: Paraeducator, Office Manager, Substitute Coordinator, Executive Secretary for Technology and Assessment. Transitioning to her current role in October, she is continuing to grow and learn new things everyday. What she does is a mystery to many, but changes and updates appear automatically in Skyward accounts, she is an important piece of that “automatic” process. Some areas she works in daily are new employee accounts, school calendars, course and grading configurations for each school year, food services accounts, student IDs, Family Access and new student enrollment configuration to name a few. “Part of my responsibilities also include purchase order requests for Technology, where it is fun to watch innovation in the world of education. I really enjoy working with the people on our team in our district,” Annette says. #ESPWeek2023 #learnleadimpactESD #aprenderliderarimpactoESD

Education Support Professional Spotlight: Leslie Quezada-Garcia, District Cultural Specialist Born in Mexico, Leslie and her family moved to Enumclaw when she was elementary school age. As a lifelong Hornet, she came back to ESD after receiving her degree from Green River College. "The purpose of the cultural program is inclusivity. Students come together with their uniqueness to find unity. It can be challenging at times, but we get to adapt to their individual needs" Leslie explains. In addition to being the district Cultural Specialist, Leslie is an English/Spanish interpreter for ESD events, conferences, meetings, and providing translations for the approximately 10% of ESD enrolled families who are Spanish speaking at home.

Yesterday, Enumclaw Middle School administrators received a report of a shooting threat planned to take place on Monday morning. School administrators and the Enumclaw Police Department responded immediately to ensure the safety of our schools. For detailed information regarding the action taken by the Enumclaw Police Department, please review our previous communication. We understand that some of our students, staff, and families remain concerned and request additional information. Due to Federal and State privacy laws, the district is not able to provide information on individual students. However, the student remains in custody and will not be returning to campus Monday. Additionally, when a threat is made, the student issuing the threat is not permitted to return to school until a full risk assessment is completed. Completed risk assessments can result in disciplinary action ranging from short-term suspension to expulsion. Law enforcement and mental health services may also provide additional restrictions. Out of an abundance of caution and to provide additional support for our students, staff, and families, Enumclaw Middle School will have an increased safety presence today and Monday. Our EPD SRO and additional counseling staff are present at EMS and available to students and staff.
