WDC honoring its paraprofessionals
During the week of Jan. 24-28, Wadena-Deer Creek Schools will recognize the contributions of their paraprofessionals throughout the school district.
"Paraprofessionals are an integral part of our school system," Superintendent Virginia Dahlstrom said. "They are important to the vitality of our schools. Our schools thrive in large part because of the strong connections our school personnel make with our students."
Paraprofessionals are individuals who work in a variety of positions throughout WDC's preschool, elementary, high school and Kids' Club. They include student-support paraprofessionals, Title 1 paraprofessionals, special-education paraprofessionals, lunch room and playground assistants, hall monitors, media-center assistants, nursing and more. Paraprofessionals work with students on a daily basis and make a difference in their lives.
A recognition open house to recognize WDC's paraprofessionals was held on Monday, Jan. 24 during the school's staff development workshop. Cake and refreshments were served.
