Wednesday was the first day back for the USD 353 Teachers. A breakfast followed by the Convocation took place in the WHS Auditorium. A "Dream Team" made up of both retired USD 353 teachers as well as a seasoned one or two "still on staff" members, presented their individual views about teaching, about kids, about public education, etc. Very enlightening and inspirational to hear from each one. The Crusader Band performed as well as this summers' Kansas Roadmap Reading Campers, who sang "their" song for all in attendance. Eisenhower Teacher Cherity Elder was Master of Ceremonies if you will and in charge of the event and all of the aforementioned features. Lunch was served to all of the district employees at Freewill Baptist Church which was very much appreciated. The teachers returned after lunch and worked in their classrooms.
More training and professional development is scheduled between now and Tuesday when the students return district-wide for the 2017-2018 school year!
WELCOME BACK TEACHERS & STAFF!!
