This week, February 27-March 3. 2017, marks two important celebrations. The first is Celebrate Texas Publics Schools Week.
Every moment of every day in Texas public schools, students experience real life engagement and profound learning. Teachers are the catalyst for student learning. When those "Ah-Ha" moments happen, teachers celebrate students' success and recognize achievement whenever possible. But sometimes we don't get to see or hear of those moments because we know they happen all the time. As a community, we should help spread the word! It is more important now than ever to Celebrate Texas Public Schools! The Celebrate Texas Public Schools campaign is the perfect opportunity to do just that and more! Teachers, snap a photo with your class when students are learning! Parents, take photos of your children and their teachers and principals! Use the hashtag, #PowerofPublic, and let it known there are wonderful things happening in Wylie ISD!
Second, we College Week. The public school experience lays the foundation for students to achieve the goals later in life. And while everyone's path to a career is different, the importance of going to college cannot be overlooked. During this week, campuses will have special activities centered on the college experience and choosing the right college for you. You can help at home by taking time to talk to your student about the importance of college.
What a wonderful week this is as we celebrate the learning experience in its entirety. We hope you will join us in celebrating...it's the Wylie Way!
