“School’s out for Summer!”

Friday, June 16, 2023

Dear Watertown Public Schools Faculty, Students, and Families,

On the last day(s) of school, I would like to wish each and every Watertown family a wonderful start to Summer break. After a year of hard work, perseverance, and accomplishments, you all deserve time to rest, spend quality time with friends and family, and watch countless sunsets! 

And, thank you to all of our WPS faculty and staff for all you do each and every day to make our school district Watertown! Thank you Teachers, Administrators, Paraeducators, Nurses, Secretaries, Custodial/Maintenance/Technology, Cafeteria, substitutes, volunteers, and Bus Drivers for making every day possible. And thank you families and students for being part of the teaching and learning experience we set out to traverse each day.

We have much to be proud of as a district. We have accomplished so much together. We continue to forge forward and take the next step in our journey.

Congratulations to all of our graduates! Until next academic year….enjoy your Summer, Watertown!

Dr. V
