WAEA invites you to celebrate American Education Week November 18-22 to promote the value of education in our culture and those who contribute to our students' educations. All of the below planned events are for both students and staff, so participate, enjoy, and please promote participation among our students, as well. Thank you for all that you do!

Monday: AEW Kick-Off: Red for Ed: Please wear red to show your support for and pride in being a part of education in our schools.
Tuesday: Parents Day: Staff baby pictures: Check out the picture bulletin boards in the elementary and high school wings and try to guess who's who. *More info to come.*
Wednesday: Education Support Professionals Day: Dress as your favorite super hero to recognize these super heroes in our school. Also, bring a little something extra for the Day County Food Pantry in recognition of all the extra things our ESPs do for our students. *More info to come.*
Thursday: Educator for a Day: Students dress as teachers, professionals, careers, whatever they want to be when they grow up.
Friday: Substitute Educators Day: Since our "subs" are so important to our school, let's have subs for lunch! The lunchroom will be serving subs, and WAEA is working with Subway subs to hopefully provide subs in the lounges for the staff, as well.
Little Bearcats School is held every Wednesday from 10-11 a.m. at the Webster Public Library. This is for newborn to preschool children.
The final deadline this school year to redeem Box Tops is March 1. Please bring them in so the school will get credit.
Traditional Box Tops clips are being phased out of production. Box Tops is modernizing the Box Tops program for the next generation of participants. Using mobile technology, they can show families how their contributions impact Webster Area School in real time.
