I hope this message finds you and your family ready to celebrate some time together over the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday weekend. During this season, I always take time to reflect how grateful I am for the 2,800 Team WCPS members and the difference they make in the lives of students. I am also grateful to the WCPS parents and guardians that trust us with their children and support our efforts as we strive to inspire academic and personal growth in our children each and every day.
Our second Professional Learning Communities (PLC) day across the district was a huge success! Approximately 2,000 faculty and staff members participated in a day filled with collaboration, idea sharing, data discussions and academic training. The PLC time was planned to include an intentional focus on differentiated strategies for learning and intervention, as well as ways to share effective resources and activities for our students. Thanks to our WCPS school board members for providing these PLC days in the school calendar!
We are also celebrating several honors and recognitions at WCPS! Congratulations to the following WCPS team members:
Cumberland Trace Elementary’s Adriane Watt was nominated for the Presidential Award of Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching;
Natcher Elementary’s Sara Hall was one of ten educators from across the state to receive the Anthem Kentucky Education Excellence Award;
Natcher Elementary’s Catie Embry was selected by Kentucky SHAPE as the 2021-2022 Distinguished Service Award winner.
