District Announcements
Teacher Appreciation Week--A Message from the Superintendent of Schools
Every school day, the 806 teachers working in the Wayne Township Public Schools deliver over 5,000 lessons to their students.  Quietly, they deliver lessons that change lives and inspire students.  They often give students much more to think about after school besides their homework.  There are countless examples of our teachers extending themselves well after the final bell.

Today is a special day to celebrate our teachers.  On behalf of the Wayne Township Board of Education and the administration, it is my pleasure to express sincere appreciation for their excellent work and dedication.   We thank our teachers for being models of patience, honesty, wisdom, responsibility, generosity and for their commitment to lifelong learning. 
 
Sincerely,
Mark Toback
Superintendent of Schools
