Olympia staff and Administration gathered to celebrate the successes of the school year and say goodbye to those who are retiring. The event kicked off with a wonderful lunch prepared by the cafeteria staff. Dr. Wise welcomed and thanked everyone for their hard work and dedication throughout the year. Next those staff members with perfect attendance, as well as 10, 20, and even 30 years of service to the District were recognized. Assistant Superintendent Laura O'Donnell then honored our four District nominees for the Those Who Excel awards. Our District selections for these awards will be honored at a banquet in the fall and get the chance to go on to win the award at the State level as well. The afternoon concluded with a few words about each of our 10 retirees. We hope that everyone has a fantastic summer and we will see everyone again in August!
