On Wednesday afternoon, I had the pleasure of attending an event at the Westin Hotel in downtown Ottawa, recognizing the top employers in the National Capital Region for 2018. It brings me great joy to share that the Ottawa Catholic School Board was recognized for the fourth year in a row as being a great place to work and learn.
As we have in years past, I invite our entire OCSB community to celebrate with us by participating in our #ocsbCelebrates social media campaign. This special campaign allows us to pause, observe, and recognize the outstanding employees that make our school board such a wonderful community.
Last year, we received over 2,000 nominations from members of our OCSB community. It only takes a few minutes to fill out the #ocsbCelebrates nomination form, but the impact of recognizing someone can truly brighten up their day for weeks! Remember, anyone in our community can submit a nomination whether you’re a student, parent, staff, or someone connected to our board through one of our many partner organizations.
Thank you in advance for your participation in this exciting activity, and congratulations to the employees of the Ottawa Catholic School Board for this outstanding accomplishment. Let’s celebrate!
