Rena Pivoras Named November Laker Champion for Kids

Rena Pivoras Named November Laker Champion for Kids

Rena Pivoras was recently named the November Laker Champion for Kids. Pivoras is a cook in the East Calloway Elementary cafeteria. The Laker Champion for Kids is awarded each month to a Laker staff member who goes above and beyond for students and colleagues.

Pivoras was nominated by Alyson Adams, who wrote:

“She goes above and beyond for the kids at East by taking an interest in each student and making the cafeteria fun and festive with her infectious personality, themed bulletin boards, spirit day participation and decorating skills. She spreads joy across the district with her classroom visits as the Tooth Fairy, and her spot-on impression of Chris Farley’s Lunch Lady character in a food service training. I have seen social media posts where parents proclaim that she is their child’s favorite person at school.
Districtwide she is an avid band booster parent and can be found helping with all events. She has been a big help at past project graduation events, even when she doesn’t have a child graduating.”

“She brings an energy to every room she enters," said Director of Food Service Megan Adams. She is both admired by her fellow staff and students. She puts a lot of effort into her student relationships and has a great way of talking and associating with the students in the cafeteria. She is the master behind our fun bulletin boards at East in the cafeteria! You’ll always catch her enjoying dress up days or holidays! She is a valued member of our team, and we are thankful for her continued service to our kitchen and students of East Calloway Elementary.”
