East Valley Welcomes Yamate HS Juniors!

Regional Classified
School Employee of the Year
 Regional Employee of the Year

Our very own - Dan Holzer, Terrace Heights Elementary Custodian, is the 2017 ESD105 Regional Classified School Employee of the year!

The award recognizes not only his exemplary work role of consistently maintaining the pristine condition of the Terrace Heights Elementary building, but also the custodian’s numerous contributions in organizing activities and providing interpersonal connections that have all enhanced students’ experiences and safety at the school.

In her letter of recommendation for the award, Terrace Heights Elementary principal Tami Scrivner wrote:  “Dan is someone the kids trust.  I cannot tell you how many want to be a custodian helper on a weekly basis.  Achievement increases when children feel safe and connected, and sometimes all it takes is a connection with one person to make school a better place.”
