Note from the Director...

Teacher Appreciation Day - Tuesday, May 9, 2017   Thank a Teacher!
"Teachers affect eternity; no one can tell where their influence stops."  Henry Adams

Sixteen years ago, the WSF Board of Directors established a program that annually acknowledges outstanding District Staff members for " going above and beyond"  
The Caught in the Act Award.
Over
 300 staff have been recognized! 
Nominations by colleagues, administration, students, parents or community members speak of dedication, compassion and a commitment to children and education - outstanding teachers,  guidance  counselors, social workers, aides, custodians, cooks, principals, librarians, secretaries, school nurses, administrators and liaison officers to name a few.

The 2017 Award recipients will be recognized at the beginning of the
WSD 
Board of Education meeting on Monday, May 8, 2017 6:00 PM at 
Longfellow Administration Center.
 Please join us in congratulating this year's 21 deserving recipients.
