Last night the SEPAC and the Concord Public and Concord-Carlisle Regional School Committees honored twenty-seven people from the Concord Public Schools and Concord-Carlisle Regional School District with this year’s SEPAC Appreciation Awards.
Parents and guardians of children who have a student on an IEP or 504 plan were invited to nominate one special person in the school districts who have made a difference to their family or student during the current school year. Among the honorees were special education teachers, cafeteria workers, general education teachers, tutors, administration, and two former co-presidents of the SEPAC.
Congratulations and thank you, honorees, for your dedication to our students and for believing that every student deserves an extraordinary education.
SEPAC Appreciation Awards will be presented tomorrow at the Joint School Committee meeting!
6:30 pm, Ripley Administration Building
Please join us as we honor our wonderful recipients.
