ASD Celebrates Support Staff During the Month of November

ASD Celebrates Support Staff During the Month of November
Posted on 11/04/2019
Last school year, the Allentown School District wanted to make sure that our support staff who provide critical assistance to teachers and administrators every day had a chance to be recognized and shine. They officially made November Support Staff Recognition Month in ASD! 

From custodial to paraprofessional, these are the staff members (sometimes literally) keep the lights on!

Our support staff are actively working with teachers to drive personalized learning and instruction, as well as cultivating a culture where students feel safe, valued and nurtured. 

Without the work of these key groups, we would not be able to work towards a better future for our students. They are truly Committed to Excellence! Many of these employees have served in different capacities over the years or within different buildings as the District grew. 

This year, during the month of November, we also join in celebrating American Education Week (November 18-22, 2019) and Educational Support Professionals Day on November 20! 

Please help us say thank you and congratulations to the following employees who have accumulated 25 or more years of consecutive service to the students of the Allentown School District:
