|Nominate employees, partners or volunteers for Good Apple Award
All schools and support centers are encouraged to participate in the Good Apple Award recognition program. This bi-annual award program was established to honor employees, volunteers and school partners for exemplary service. Nomination forms are available from the district’s website or from building principals.
Nomination deadlines vary by school, so consult the principal where the nominee works or volunteers. Principals must select their award recipients and notify Marketing and Communications by Friday, November 7 at noon.
In addition to building-level recognition, the Board of Education will honor Good Apples during a special ceremony on Monday, December 1 at 6 p.m. at North High School. The Spring Good Apple Award ceremony will be on Monday, April 20 at 6 p.m. at Stucky Middle School.
School Finder helps parents
Schools can also use the program to answer parents’ questions about which school their child should attend and if they qualify for a bus. The data is pulled from the district’s scheduling program that develops bus routes.
“It’s an easy to use tool to help our families and our schools,” said Fabian Armendariz, Transportation Director.
A link to School Finder is under the “Parents” section of the Wichita Public Schools’ Web site.
Pure magnet schools are not listed in School Finder because they do not have a neighborhood address. For additional questions, contact Student Records and Enrollment Services at 973-4498.
