News and Notes: Volume 2, Number 8

As it is the Friday before Halloween, I wanted to keep this week's News and Notes short and sweet as I'm sure all of you are busy getting ready for celebrations tonight and the main event tomorrow. I do want to briefly mention that our long-time Board of Education member Jim Vibbart submitted his resignation at this Monday's meeting, effective Tuesday, October 27. We are accepting applications through November 9. Those interested in applying can find the application on our website. Our BOE will vote and appoint the new member at our November 16 meeting. I will highlight more about Jim's 12+ years of service next week.
Enjoy some highlights from this week, and have a Happy Halloween.

Calling All Rosies
WLPS was represented at Willow Run in Ypsilanti as the Guinness World Record for the most Rosie the Riveters was broken. 2,097 were present at a fundraiser for the Yankee Air Museum at the Willow Run Airport.
WLES teacher, Carolyn Otterman, was one of those Rosies. Her grandmother and great aunt worked at the bomber plant during WWII, so it was especially meaningful to be there with her family. And now her cousin flies the B-25, the plane featured in the picture below.
Members of our very own staff can be seen in the stories featured in local, state and even international media. You can see many familiar faces in this video posted on The Guardian's site:

Have a Safe and Happy Halloween!
