Celebrating Paraprofessional Appreciation Day!

A great day was planned celebrating and honoring the amazing work of our paraprofessionals. Our paraprofessionals perform a variety of teacher-related jobs and assist teachers in classrooms. They work with students on supplemental enrichment activities and completing assignments. They often work with special education students who have a variety of disabilities and challenging behaviors. The support of our paraprofessionals is crucial for students success and we are grateful for their dedication, kindness, patience, and for their positive attitudes!
