Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month 🗓️ Let’s celebrate the diverse cultures and histories of Asian and Pacific Islander communities! Their stories are integral parts of American History. By celebrating their contributions, we enrich our understanding of our nation's history. Did you know that the concept of “labor rights” in the U.S. owes much to the activism of Asian immigrants? From the early Chinese laborers advocating for fair wages to the Filipino farmworkers igniting the fight for better working conditions, their legacy continues to inspire. 👏 Lean more

Report cards are now on ParentSquare! Starting this quarter, we are transitioning to a more efficient and environmentally friendly method of distributing report cards! Report cards can now be accessed electronically through ParentSquare, our two-way communication platform for WPS families and staff! By delivering report cards electronically, we can streamline communication and ensure that you receive timely access to your child's academic progress. What you need to know: - Report cards will be sent directly to your ParentSquare account. - You will receive a notification once the report cards are available for viewing. - If you haven't already, please ensure that your ParentSquare account is up-to-date to avoid any delays in receiving your child's report card. We understand that this change may be different from what you're accustomed to, but we believe it will ultimately enhance the efficiency and convenience of accessing student academic records.

⭐ WooStar Dr. Amy DeFeudis, Adjustment Counselor at Worcester Tech ⭐ “Amy goes above and beyond the call of duty for the betterment of the students and staff,” said one co-worker. “She is always leaving cards of encouragement on my desk or to others showing us all how much she cares and actually listens not only to us, but the students as well.” Amy is described as someone who comes in early and stays late, spreading her kindness to everyone she meets. Co-workers describe working with Amy as “an honor” due to her ability to make anyone near her feel special. “She deserves to be recognized for not only devotion to her job and herself, but for her care towards the wellbeing of everyone around her. She is magnetic, and you always seem to find yourself stopping by her office just to say hello.”
