35 years ago, on February 2, gas was $0.96 per gallon, a pound of bacon was $1.90, "Need You Tonight" by INXS was the #1 song and "Three Men and a Baby" was in the movie theaters. Most importantly though, Donna Parys began working at Lebanon (now LEAP) Elementary School. For 35 years she has gone above and beyond her role as a paraprofessional, supporting students and staff in various ways. On February 2, we celebrated Donna's dedication and commitment to education in the community - 1980s style! So many #WatertownWay students and staff members have had the pleasure of working with Mrs. Parys, and we hope there will be many more!

The #WatertownWay students at LEAP had SNOW much fun outside at recess yesterday!❄️☃
In honor of World Kindness Day, LEAP Elementary Student Council recognized the every day kindnesses of one of our own - Mrs. McCormack! Mrs. McCormack goes above and beyond each day making the lunchroom a fun place to be. She decorates the gym/lunchroom for the seasons and holidays - always having a craft for each class to create. At LEAP, the lunchroom is a place for learning too! Mrs. McCormack educates our students on the importance of recycling and makes sure they know the what is garbage and what is recyclable. So many of her kindnesses are completed without anyone knowing what she does. She is generous with her time and talents and we are so thankful she shares them with our staff and school! Thanks, Mrs. McCormack - we hit the jackpot with you!
