The award was presented by Commissioner of Education, Dr. Miguel Cardona on Saturday at the CABE conference. Pictured above are the four Board members who attended the conference: Rosa Richardson, Robert Guthrie, Rosie Russo and Susan Walker.
Although four members were able to attend the presentation it was due to the cooperative effort of all nine BOE members. Absent from the photo but part of the team are Pat Libero, Patrick R Leigh, Lauren Aceto, Karen Pacell,i and James Morrissey. This is the first time the WH BOE was recognized since 2005.

This year, the Kindergarten students did "Alphabet Boot Camp."  They learned one letter per day for the first twenty-six days of school.  There were various activities and projects (such as making hats with an object that began with a particular letter) that they did each day.  The parade was the culminating activity and the kids all made alphabet vests that they are wearing in the parade. The students had a fun time parading while the other students watched.

As evidence of residency, the parent or legal guardian of each student must provide the school building administrator with the following most recent documents: Mortgage statement or lease provision, with landlord name and phone number; AND a current utility bill (phone, cell, cable, UI, gas, water).

 

Parents must accompany all new registrants who are under eighteen years of age. They are also required to present educational and health records obtained from the school that was previously attended.”
