Winners will be announced on December 3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th, 17th, 18th at 8:30a on the Morning Kix Start.

Our second winner for the Holiday Edition of Pack the Backpack is 2nd grade teacher at East Marshall Elementary, Carol Meyer. She was nominated by Denae Neisess, a parent of one of the students in her class. Here is the nomination letter:

Good morning!

I’d like to nominate Mrs. Meyer, second grade teacher at East Marshall Elementary. She has been in teaching for over 20 years. Most of those years were as a Kindergarten teacher. Two years ago she took on the challenge of leaving her comfort zone and taking on second grade. She had to start over in terms of lesson plans as well as supplies. She is a very positive role model to these kids/parents and takes a hands on approach to learning. With 26 students this year I think this would be a nice pick me up and give her and the students something extra that is very much deserved.
