Recognition Week is November 13 – 17, 2023

At Monday’s School Board meeting, the MSD board declared November 13 – 17 to be American Education Week with the following proclamation:

  • WHEREAS, public schools are the backbone of our democracy, providing young people with the tools they need to maintain our nation’s precious values of freedom, civility and equality; and

  • WHEREAS, by equipping young Americans with both practical skills and broader intellectual abilities, schools give them hope for, and access to, a productive future; and

  • WHEREAS, education employees–be they custodians or teachers, bus drivers or librarians–work tirelessly to serve our children and communities with care and professionalism; and

  • WHEREAS, schools are community linchpins, bringing together adults and children, educators and volunteers, business leaders, and elected officials in a common enterprise;

  • NOW, THEREFORE, the McMinnville School District does hereby proclaim November 13-17, 2023 as the 102nd annual observance of American Education Week and American Education Month.
