Thankful Thursday: Classified school employees dedicated to children's success

March 21, 2013 

Gov. Jay Inslee declared March 11-15, 2013, as Classified School Employee Week.

Without the support and love of our transportation, custodial, food service and maintenance staff, secretaries, clerks, central office and special services personnel, library, instructional and health room assistants, coaches, and home visitors, the Prosser School District would be just another school district in Washington.

By supporting the learning environment, our classified employees are crucial partners with teachers and parents. They give a great deal to our school system and to the Prosser community.

Our classified staff gives of themselves above and beyond each day for our students. They work hard to support our educational programs and to ensure that the safety and welfare of our students are their No. 1 priority. The district's classified employees always step up to assist our students regardless of the task at hand.

We would like to thank each of them for the dedication and care they exhibit each day. We are proud of the job they do and want the community to know they are an important member of the Prosser School District team. As superintendent of the district, I find it an honor to work with them each day.
