09-23-22 WCSD Weekly Update
Welcome to the Weekly Update!
As we shared prior to the school year, we are starting a new Q&A segment in the Weekly Newsletter where I answer stakeholder questions. If you have a question, please send an e-mail to email@example.com by Wednesday of each week. Be sure to include “Superintendent Q&A” in the subject line. We are doing this segment to increase accessibility within the District. We will do our best to answer your questions but please understand we won’t answer every question that is submitted.
While we begin this new segment, please remember that if you have questions or concerns at the building level, your first point of contact should be your teacher, followed by the school administration. Their contact information was shared in each school’s weekly newsletter and is available on the District website.
Don’t forget! The first Community Forum with the Board of Education will take place on Saturday, October 1st from 9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at Williamsville North High School. Information was shared through WITS and is also available in the weekly newsletters and on our social media channels. These forums are a great opportunity for stakeholders to ask questions in an informal setting.
I also want to let our school community know that the District will be holding a job fair on Thursday, October 6th from 2:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. at the District Office. An informational flyer for this event will be shared on the District website, through WITS, social media, the weekly newsletters, and with our partners in the community. We are looking to add dynamic individuals through a variety of positions including substitute teachers, teacher aides, facilities, custodial, clerical, and food service workers. Be sure to check out the Career Opportunities page for a list of positions that are available now! If you have any questions, reach out to our Human Resources Department by calling 716-626-8053.
This week, as part of Hispanic Heritage Month, we recognized Sandra Cisneros, a Mexican-American novelist, short-story writer, essayist, and poet. She is one of the first Hispanic-American writers to achieve commercial success. Her book, The House on Mango Street, has sold more than six million copies and has been translated into over 20 languages.
If you haven’t already done so, be sure to check out the video project shared on the District website, in the weekly newsletter, and across our social media channels. We are proud to celebrate history and diversity in our District and look forward to doing these video projects throughout the year.
It has been amazing to see all the great homecoming festivities this week at Williamsville South. Their homecoming football game is tonight against Lake Shore. Good luck tonight, Billies!
Next week, the homecoming fun heads to Williamsville East and Williamsville North. Be sure to watch the video update to see what’s in store for the Flames and Spartans!
As always, enjoy the weekend and we’ll see you next week!
