Be Nice and say thank you to a school employee!

Hello everyone,

I hope you are having a wonderful day!  It is my pleasure to announce the return of the district’s Successory Program.  We began this program last year as a way for students to say thank you to school employees who are helping them become a success.

Here’s how it works:

·         During the week of October 5-9, students can go to http://www.wcs.edu/wp-content/pdf/Successory_Nomination.pdf and print off a Successory form, fill it out and place it in the box marked “Successory forms” which should be placed in the school’s front office.

·         On Friday, October 5, someone from the school will reach into the Successory box and pull out a winner.  The employee whose name is on the form will receive coupons for two free meals at Chick-Fil-A!!!

·         The remaining forms will be given to the employees who were nominated as a reminder of the impact they have on their students.  In addition, some of the forms will be posted on a bulletin board here at the Central Office.

 How You Can help

Please encourage students you know to go to http://www.wcs.edu/students/successory-program/ and fill out a Successory form.  The link can also be found under the Students tab on the WCS homepage.  We want to make sure all of the schools have some level of participation.  You can also use the following description in any newsletter you may be sending out between now and October 5:

BE NICE and say thank you! Williamson County School’s Successory program gives students a chance to say thank you to the school employees who are helping them become a success. Participating is easy! Just print off a Succesory form online, fill it out with the name of a school employee (teacher, bus driver, cafeteria worker, etc.) who’s making a difference in your life and drop it off in the box marked Successory forms in the front office the week of October 5-9. At the end of the week, a name will be drawn and one lucky employee will receive a special prize. 

Let me end by saying thank you for everything you do!  You all are amazing!  Please let me know if you have any questions or if there’s anything we can do for you.  Take care and have a wonderful day!

Oh and by the way, here are the rest of the Successory weeks for the 2015-16 school year:

October 5-9  |  January 11-15  |  March 14-18  |  May 2-6
