Melanie VanDer Stoep - September's GEM!

Congratulations to Melanie VanDer Stoep, Shady Grove's September GEM!
Melanie has been with us less than a year, but in that short time she has worked to do her job as our campus registrar with kindness, patience and diligence. She has received several compliments from parents who worked with her to enroll their children at the start of this year. Each one shared how they appreciated the time she took in explaining the process and helping them to feel welcome.

Amber Jones - Our March GEM!

We are proud to announce our March GEM, Amber Jones!
The time and effort Amber has put towards our music programs has been so appreciated, and her excitement and love for what she does is noticeable. The community (parents, staff and students) have thoroughly enjoyed seeing our students' love for music through performance. Music/theatre has allowed for some of our students who typically struggle, to shine, lead and be proud of themselves. Having her here has been such a blessing! Congratulations to our March GEM, Amber Jones!
