  A brief note to the WPS community to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving and please take this time to enjoy a Thanksgiving break with family and friends.  We have been listening to the WPS community through meetings and telephone conversations and look forward to hearing more as the school year goes on.  We will keep you updated on the strides our district continues to make and please know that your principals, teachers and administrators do everything we can to ensure our students get the best education possible in a safe and happy learning environment.

Best Wishes,
