July is almost over, but let’s take a moment to celebrate April!

Throughout 2020-21 we put the spotlight on PCPS’ awesome employees with the Focused on Excellence campaign. We continued that effort in 2021-22, asking employees to nominate their colleagues from various departments for a chance to receive some great prizes and be recognized on PCPS’ communication channels.

Our final group from 2021-22: teachers! Congratulations to April Johnson, an ESE teacher at Lewis Anna Woodbury Elementary.

“Working for Polk County Public Schools allows me to make an investment in my community by equipping students with the tools to be successful in school, and life,” she said. “Being that I work with striving students, I’m continuously researching and using new strategies to reach them. I have taken on the task to challenge them to reach their fullest potential. I love that PCPS provides the necessary resources for all students to receive a quality education.”

April received a generous package of gifts made possible by our sponsors: IDX Image Depot, Publix, GEICO, Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, Lakeland Magic, Sign Gypsies-Lakeland, CPS Investment Advisors, Fields Insurance & Financial Group, and Fleet Feet Lakeland.

We’d also like to thank the South Lakeland Chick-fil-A for catering our Focused on Excellence employee appreciation luncheon.

Thank you April for contributing so much to our students and community!
