American Education Week in the AASD
Thank you for celebrating American Education Week with us. We want to extend an enthusiastic "THANK YOU" to our community, staff, administrators and neighborhoods. Thank you for the support and for contributing to the success of our students, every child, every day.
Throughout the week there was opportunities family and cultural events, musical performances, and more.
Team Up with a Teacher
In celebration of American Education Week, we invited members of the community to "Team Up with a Teacher" and engage with our students in their classrooms.
This year we decided to focus on our Fine Arts classes, so community members could see the arts in action in our schools.
It’s easy to be enthusiastic and proud when you are in the public education environment every day. Take a look at the comments below from community members on their experiences in our “Team Up with a Teacher” exercise.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time attending a metal working class at Appleton North High School. What amazed me were how many of the skills the students were learning were also necessary for successful careers in industry and manufacturing!”
-- Senator Roger Roth
