Today, California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced the recipients of the 2018 California Distinguished Schools Awards. We are thrilled and honored Wade Thomas has earned this distinction! The California Distinguished Schools Program recognizes schools that have made exceptional gains in implementing academic content and performance standards adopted by the State Board of Education. Criteria for earning the distinction included test scores, suspension rates, progress of English Language Learners, and model programs/practices, which for us was Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop. This award is the result of our tremendously talented and dedicated staff; the vision, leadership, and support of Ross Valley School District; and support of the entire Wade Thomas community. Congratulations!
We invite all families and friends to join us at Open House this Thursday to celebrate our student’s hard work. Seeing our young Mustangs proudly show off their accomplishments and share their learning is something I look forward to each year! The Book Fair will be open and, new this year, we are arranging for a food vendor for those who wish to purchase dinner.
