Webster had seven students qualify for the final round with six students who made the trip to Chicago this past weekend to participate in the final round of competition. We are amazingly proud to share the following results!

Teacher Appreciation Week

Next week is National Teacher Appreciation Week. Think of a way to say thank you to those that are making an impact on your child. Here are some ideas:

-Send a thank you card to a special teacher in your life or a teacher of a child in your life.

-Show your support for the tremendous work teachers do by volunteering in a classroom.

-Tell a story on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram about a teacher who had an impact on your life and how you plan to celebrate teachers during the week.

-Let's make it a great week!

-Mr. DeRosa
