|Mrs. Sabol is always ready to help!|
The Helping Hands award is for PTA members who work on behalf of children, but are not teachers. The Horace Mann PTA Awards Committee (Mrs. Nora Katzenberger, Chair) nominated Mrs. Sabol because of the way she goes above-and-beyond in meeting the health needs of our students.
She shows kindness and compassion for all students, and has a great knack for working with our students with moderate-intensive special needs (many of whom require daily medical attention). When a student is injured during the school day, it is not uncommon for her to call the parent in the evening to see how the child is doing. She even was awarded a PTA Mini-Grant this year, in order to organize and provide clothing for kids who might need something clean and dry during the school day.
Mrs. Sabol has medical training above the level required for her current position (she is a certified phlebotomy technician). She has worked in health centers in Lakewood Schools for eight years, serving at Grant, Hayes and--fortunately for us--Horace Mann.
Thank you, Mrs. Sabol, for all the ways your hands help us when we need it the most!
