Kickoff for Kids Board member Lance Walker visited Immaculate Conception Grade School Tuesday to present seventh-grade teacher Sara Donovan with the organization's Teacher of the Month Award for November.  

Donovan was surprised during her first-period class by ICGS Principal Cathy Linley, who presented her with flowers. Then Walker announced the award and read part of the nomination received from ICGS by Kickoff for Kids. Donovan was recognized for instilling in her students an appreciation of poetry and history, a confidence in public speaking, a sense of patriotism for our country and a compassion for those who are suffering.  

In addition to a commemorative medallion, Donovan also received a $300 gift certificate to West Suburban Office Supply in Elmhurst.

According to its website, "Kickoff for Kids is a non-profit organization working to enrich the lives of all children in Elmhurst and surrounding communities through family-centered programs focusing on Community, Education, and Health and Fitness."
