Sub Day Winners

WINNERS 2019-2020

September: Nicholas Weigel-Hubler (VO) & Bridget Zahradnik (PV)

October: Sarah Kalczynski (HS) & Kelsey Gaylord (DF)

November: Laura Khalil (MS) & Renee Gantt (PV)








Bridget Zahradnik from PV was able to spend her Friday afternoon having lunch with her husband and daughter, then shopping.    


Dr. Webber walked into the 3rd grade classroom and said "My name is Dr. Webber with two B's and I very much look forward to ending my week with you".  Over the next 3 1/2 hours they were going to work on WIN time, a mindset lesson, planners for next week and of course - recess! 


A great class with a lot of great questions, like:

  • What is your favorite Indian food?

  • Do you like Michigan or Michigan State?

  • Will you come back again tomorrow?

  • How old are you? - I don't want to give you his answer but I will say after he said his age, the class said "you look like you are 20"


What a great afternoon!


Mr. WH from VO was able to get a head start on his trip up north.  It is an annual weekend trip with all his family to his aunt's apple orchard in Ludington.  While he was traveling, Dr. Matthews had the joy of teaching his class.


Dr. Matthews walked into the room and said "all afternoon recess".  Everyone cheered.  But the reality was math.  Learning the difference between factors and multiples.  Then multiplication of multiples.  Somewhere during the math lesson, Dr. Matthews said, "I'm an excellent teacher". You could have heard a pin drop.  These 4th graders take their math very serious! 


There was a call from the office over the loud speaker for Dr. Matthews to send a student to the office.  Her mom was here and the student was leaving for the day.  Dr. Matthews asked her where she was going this afternoon, and she said "I'm not sure either the dentist or Florida."


The afternoon ended with book buddies, as these fantastic 4th graders partnered with kindergarten students to read.


What a great afternoon!

Sarah from the high school had a quick message to Dr. Matthews who was able to take her morning time in the classroom.

"Thank you for subbing for my AP Psychology classes this morning and supporting the Novi Educational Foundation!


I had a wonderful morning sleeping in, getting to drop my son off at school, and going out to breakfast with my husband!  It was a great way to start the week!"


Friday, Kelsey Gaylord from DF was able to hang out with Scout her golden retriever, then went to Royal Oak to have lunch with her mom.  Dr. Webber had the opportunity to teach her ELL students.


With the help of special guest, Adva Ringle, Dr. Webber taught 23 students in K, 4, 3, and 1st grades.  The kindergarten students started by learning the sounds of Q, R, S, and T.  There was dancing and singing.  The 3rd and 4th graders were drawing monsters and writing sentences with adjectives, trying to be as descriptive as possible. The 1st graders presented their books about the 5 senses they just finished writing.  


"Personally, this was my first time in an ELL class.  These students were fantastic and smart!  They may not speak English as well as us, but they understand and are very intelligent.  I was grateful for the opportunity to watch and learn.  If our family moved to another country and English was not the primary language, I would hope the school had a great class just like this one, for my son." - Jason Smith, NEF Executive Director


What a great afternoon!
