School Teachers Are Really Special

Twice a year, in the fall and in the spring.

WEF’s focus on educational excellence is carried out in this popular program that enables anyone in the Wakefield community to recognize a special teacher, aide, specialist or office personnel ​by making a monetary donation on behalf of the "star" whom they feel helped their child achieve academic excellence or who created an exceptional environment in which their child could learn. This special person receives a lovely certificate of appreciation from the individual(s) who donated on their behalf.

This is just another fabulous way to recognize academic excellence by the wonderful staff in the Wakefield Public Schools.
