CKSS Acknowledgement Project

What's easy, costs nothing, and makes people feel great?  Acknowledgement!  Here's a way we can spread acknowledgement within the school community...

1. Fill out this acknowledgement form.  Do so whenever it occurs to you that a staff member or student did something worth acknowledging.  Anything.  Big or small.  Whether they were "supposed" to do it or not.  Heck, you can even acknowledge yourself!

2. The form will be received, and the person acknowledged.

3. He or she will have the opportunity to have a picture taken in the "frame of fame" -- the picture will be posted on the school's Twitter feed.  BAM -- instant public acknowledgement!

The project is open to staff and students of CKSS.  Acknowledge someone today!
