Celebration of Learning Nominations

Nomination Overview


Each spring, the Wakefield Educational Foundation (WEF) proudly sponsors a Celebration of Learning (COL) event to honor outstanding students, staff and volunteers, taking time out to celebrate what makes our schools great.  


WPS Principals should nominate deserving members of their school community, as follows:
