TWIN FALLS — Two Sawtooth Elementary School employees were recognized Monday as May employees of the month for the Twin Falls School District.
Each month, the school board honors workers — certified (such as teachers) and classified (such as paraprofessionals, secretaries and custodians) — from one or two schools.
Here’s who was recognized in May, with information from a school board packet:
