💜💛 Congratulations to 1999 graduate Colleen Dunnegan who recently won an Emmy! Two weeks ago, her production team for Harpo was honored at the 51st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards with a Daytime Emmy win for their special "Oprah and The Color Purple Journey" in the category for the Arts and Popular Culture Program. Ms. Dunnegan is a Supervising Producer for Harpo Productions and Senior Producer for OWN. “This wouldn't have been possible without the support of my loving family and the incredible teachers in DeWitt - from my time at Ekstrand through Central High School,” Dunnegan said. This Max Original Documentary Special provides a behind-the-scenes look into the making of the new feature film “The Color Purple,” a bold new take on the classic, and the impact the story has had on our culture. Oprah Winfrey takes viewers inside the four-decade phenomenon, exploring the importance of the novel, films and musical, and the ever-evolving conversation around this seminal work. The program is available to watch on @streamonmax. What an incredible achievement! We love to see our graduates accomplishing great things and celebrating their success! Congratulations again, Ms. Dunnegan!

Congratulations to 6th grader Lauren Webinger whose poster not only won first place in the local Peace Poster Contest, but also won at the district level! She was presented with this honor by the Lions Clubs International in District 9EC at their District Convention in Anamosa earlier this spring. Way to go, Lauren! “For over three decades, Lions clubs around the globe have been sponsoring a very special art contest in schools and youth groups. Creating peace posters gives children everywhere the chance to express their visions of peace and inspire the world through art and creativity.” – Lions International #gosabers #centraldewittcsd #cdis #laurenwebinger #peacepostercontest #peacepostercontestwinner #schoolwinner #districtwinner #lionsinternational #saberpride #saberssucceeding

💜💛 We are proud to recognize Kim Behrend as the May Employee of the Month for her outstanding contributions to fostering relationships and creating a more inclusive school environment. Ms. Behrend, a dedicated associate at Ekstrand Elementary, has gone above and beyond in her role by initiating a "Lunch Buddy" program that helps bridge the gap between general education students and students with special needs. She realized that by facilitating meaningful interactions, such as eating lunch together, she could help students not only improve their social skills but give them a chance to get to know each other and find common ground, thus building strong friendships. “I have noticed her efforts paying off,” First Grade Teacher Rebecca Wackerle said. “The kids are learning from her how to interact and include others who might not learn the same way they do, but do have things in common with them. My students can't wait for their turn to eat with her small group to learn more about inclusion.” Since its inception, the Lunch Buddy program has received overwhelming support and has fostered an environment where all students feel valued and included. Ms. Behrend’s determination to make this program succeed has not only enriched the lives of special needs students but also positively impacted the entire student body by promoting empathy, patience, and inclusivity. Ms. Behrend isn’t stopping there, though. This year she began helping coach Special Olympics and she has other ideas and learning opportunities to promote inclusion that she hopes to implement next year. Ultimately, Ms. Behrend would love to see Ekstrand Elementary join the ranks of the other Central DeWitt schools as a National Unified Champion School. To earn that title, schools are chosen by Special Olympics North America for having “an inclusive school climate and exuding a sense of collaboration, engagement, and respect for all members of the student body and staff.” Schools also have to meet 10 national standards of excellence. Currently, CDHS, CDMS, and CDIS are three of only 10 schools in Iowa to ever attain this achievement. It's not just about the title for Ms. Behrend, though. She truly cares about the students she works with wants them to have every opportunity to shine. Parents often credit Ms. Behrend for helping their children “find themselves” and for playing an instrumental role in the success of their children’s’ development and educational journey. Ms. Behrend has always been passionate about education, but feels that working as an associate has solidified her sense of purpose. She is currently pursuing a teaching degree in special education, driven by her commitment to making a long-term impact in this field. Her experience as an associate has provided crucial insight that will help her be an effective and successful special education teacher. Overall, her work is a testament to the power of empathy and the positive impact one individual can have on an entire school. We appreciate all you have done, Ms. Behrend! You are a true SABER! #gosabers #centraldewittcsd #ekstrandelementary #employeeofthemonth #mayemployeeofthemonth #districtemployeeofthemonth #saberpride #saberssucceeding
