It's hard to believe there are less than two months of school left this year! We would like to take a minute to thank all of our wonderful SEPAC volunteers; our dedicated board, supportive school liaisons, active members and also all of you who participated in our surveys, shared your input, read our newsletter or attended an event this year!
There are several openings on the SEPAC board for the upcoming year. We are a supportive, welcoming group and would love your contributions whether you can volunteer as a board member or have a couple of hours to help out from home. Please reach out to us and consider attending our final board meeting of the year on June 6th! Until then, enjoy the rest of spring

National School Nurse Day
Show your school nurse how much you appreciate all they do on National School Nurse Day, May 8th, 2019. Part of National Nurses week which runs May 6th through 12th. National School Nurse Day was established to recognize the contributions that school nurses make to the health and learning of our students. School nurses not only care for our children when they get hurt or feel sick, they also dispense medications, do health care screenings, support students with mental health and social stresses, support students with special needs and so much more. It is one of the first places our children seek when they need to take a break at school and our school nurses are always there to welcome and care for them. Some of the ways you can show our nurses your appreciation could be sending them a note, baking some cookies, having your child draw a picture or just stopping by to say "Thanks!"
The SEPAC thanks all of our school nurses for helping our students stay healthy, in school, and ready to learn. Be sure to thank your school nurse today and every day!
SEPAC Appreciation Awards
Speaking of showing your appreciation, the SEPAC did just that at our 3rd Annual SEPAC Appreciation Awards Presentation on April 23rd at the CPS/CCRSD School Committee Meeting. An awesome 50 educators were nominated this year! More than double the amount of nominees from last year. The nominees were administrators, staff members, general education and special education teachers! We were fortunate to have 38 of the recipients attend the presentation. (see pictures below) You can find the names of all the award recipients on our website. We'd also like to thank the families who nominated a recipient. Thank you for showing your appreciation to these outstanding educators.
