Happy June!! Today remains one of my favorite days of the year as we celebrate the graduation of our Senior class from Wellesley High School. In many ways, these students reflect our capstone project as a school district. The 356 students who will walk across the stage later today are a product of your teaching and support. From their days learning the most basic literacy and numeracy skills in our elementary schools, through Rube Goldberg projects at the Middle School, to mastering Advanced Placement Courses at the High School, your expert hands have guided our seniors all the way to tonight’s graduation stage. On behalf of a grateful community, and especially the Class of 2017, thank you for all of your efforts to make this day possible.

WCCC After School Care Proposal – Feedback Requested
The WCCC After School Program is considering offering WPS Faculty and Staff only for the 2017/18 school year a one day/week childcare option to accommodate Wednesday early release days.
The proposal is for after school coverage on Wednesdays only, from 12:00-3:30 pm (typically families must pick up at 3:00 but this has been extended by 30 minutes to allow for travel time). The proposal would also include two extra “blocks” per month. A “block” of time is a 3-hour period that can be used on any day during that month as long as enrollment at the site allows for it. This could provide time for meetings or just simply to take advantage of having care to catch up on work. The cost would be $308.00 per month.
Please email WCCC Program Director Shawn Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org with feedback on whether you have an interest in such a program. Please reply by June 20, 2017.

WPS Internal Job Postings on District Website
Please be aware that we added a new feature called “Internal Job Postings” under the Faculty tab of the District’s website. We will post all of our internal jobs under this website tab. Therefore, you will no longer see internal job postings in the bulletin. This new way of posting will allow us to post internal positions any day of the week.
