A Message from the Board of Directors

As we get ready to enjoy a well-deserved break with family, friends, and loved ones, we would like to wish all our members a Happy Holidays and a Healthy New Year! For educators, it’s always a busy time of year, and we want you to know how much we appreciate your involvement in all the events that WITA has been organizing throughout the school year. From the Homecoming events at the beginning of the school year, to the John Theissen Toy Drive that just wrapped up, these events show the positive impact that educators can have outside of the classroom. The core of what we do will always be what happens in our classrooms, but events like these extend our generosity and sense of community beyond the school walls. Some photos from these events are included below, as well as some other information we hope you find helpful. Please take some time to rest, and we look forward to seeing you in the new year!
