Introducing CEF Funded Teacher...

Karen Meyne, R.N.
Carroll Elementary School
Nurse Meyne is the perfect example of the everyday heroes working in our schools.

We asked Principal Stacy Wagnon to tell us about Nurse Meyne, and she shared this special story. "When all of the COVID safety measures were put into place last spring, Karen made individual masks for all of our staff. She even customized them especially for our Pre-Kindergarten teachers, with Dragon colors, College Universities, etc. She is always taking care of us to the utmost level possible," says Ms. Wagnon.

CISD is fortunate to have a full-time nurse on each campus. Nurses are vital to the health and well-being of our children – not just this year, but every year. CEF is honored to fund nurses like Karen Meyne this year.

"I am so grateful to work at CES because our campus has a positive vibe and genuine love for our students, parents, and staff. As a school nurse I feel a strong sense of purpose, especially during this unprecedented school year. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought us closer together as we do our best to support each other and the needs of our families," says Nurse Meyne.
Thank you, Nurse Karen Meyne!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2020 CEF Virtual Teacher Parade. From the Carroll Dragon Band Drum Line, to the CEF Funded Teachers and each Dragon Family who donated that day.

With your help, CEF was able to not only meet, but to exceed our
North Texas Giving Day goal and raise $26,807. In one day, you helped to
fund more than one-half of a teacher position.

Thank You and Go Dragons!
