Feel Good Friday: LPS Staff Shout Out

feel good friday winner for OCTOBER 15, 2021 is Crystal Contreras.

Crystal Contreras is a Special Education Para at Bryan Elementary.  When asked what she enjoys most about working for Lexington Public Schools, Crystal shared that her favorite part of her job is getting to work with so many kids.


When not at school, Crystal loves crafting and baking, but said her number one favorite thing to do is to watch movies with her family.  She enjoys spending as much time as she can with them.


Crystal’s colleagues shared that she always has a positive outlook and attitude with staff and students. Her vibrant personality shines throughout the building.  She knows how to hold expectations for students and give them grace when they are in need.  She is a true asset to LPS.


When we asked Crystal if there was anything she would like to say to inspire gratitude in others, Crystal said she would like to thank everyone at Lexington Public Schools- you are all amazing.  She states every job is important no matter how small you think it is- just be yourself, smile, and remember everyone has their ups and downs, so always be kind. 

What are feel good Fridays?

Feel Good Fridays are celebrated the first and third Friday of every month where one staff member of LPS is recognized for their hard work and dedication they provide to the district. All staff members have the opportunity to nominate their colleagues in the days before the drawing.  All nominations are entered into a random drawing and one staff member is selected to be the spotlight for that week. Our winner receives a bouquet sponsored by Plum Creek Market Place Floral Department and a gift card donated by USave Pharmacy and Gifts.  It is our hope through spreading kindness and an attitude of gratitude we will continue to strengthen a positive culture at LPS.
