The Good Apple Award program allows schools and administrative support centers to recognize employees, volunteers and partners who provide exemplary service to the district and its students. Award recipients are nominated and selected at the building where their efforts are most profoundly felt. Twice each year, principals and selection committees take up the arduous task of reviewing the nominations and selecting only three award recipients for their buildings. This year, our Rotary Club was a recipient of this award, nominated by Lawrence Elementary. This is what the Lawrence staff submitted with their nomination: “The Rotary Club of West Wichita has wrapped their arms around west side schools including Lawrence Elementary. They provide support for a variety of needs for our families, as well as support teachers and students through recognitions, books, bookcases, donations and a variety of other services.“
The award ceremony schedule for April 6 was canceled to protect the health and safety due to the Coronavirus.
