North Platte Public Schools awards Staff Member of the Month for January


The North Platte Public Schools Foundation in conjunction with North Platte Public Schools is excited to announce that Connie Thompson was awarded the Big Award Bulldog Staff person of the month for January 2018.


Connie has been with the North Platte School District for 26 years.  She started out her career with North Platte Public Schools as a behavior paraprofessional at Madison Middle School.  She also served as building secretary for Madison, before moving to the High School where she currently serves as the Office Manager. 


Connie was nominated by the administration team at NPHS who hailed her as the glue that holds the school together.  “Connie is a jack of many trades and puts forth exceptional effort to keep our school running smoothly,” stated administration.


The North Platte Public Schools and North Platte Public Schools foundation developed the BIG Staff recognition promotion to provide incentives for deserving teachers and support staff. The program is designed to recognize outstanding teachers and support staff for their contributions to NPPS. The nomination symbolizes the esteem and appreciation that everyone has for our school district employees.


Teachers are rewarded with a gift basket, balloons and a gift card to the Bulldog store at NPHS.  The North Platte Public Schools Foundation is facilitating the program and takes nominations from principals and administration.  Staff members are awarded monthly throughout the school year and will be recognized at Education After Hours on April 6, 2018.
