A big thank you to the amazing and dedicated teachers in WSD. You profoundly influence our students each and every day. As John Wooden once said “...the teaching profession contributes more to the future of our society than any other single profession.” Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!
School Bus Driver Appreciation Day is April 26th. Please join us in recognizing the fantastic efforts of our dedicated drivers. The wheels on the bus could not go "round and round" without the bus drivers who navigate our roads to make sure students get to and from school safely each day. A big thanks to the Transportation team for their service to our children.
Congratulations to the 61 Johnson Middle School students that were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society. Hundreds of people witnessed the students being sworn into this prestigious organization that rewards outstanding student leadership. The 61 students were selected because they exemplify the five attributes of scholarship, service, leadership, citizenship and character. In addition, they have completed many service hours and have maintained a high grade point average.
