Today, April 21, marks Administrative Professionals’ Day – a time to celebrate and highlight administrative professionals’ dedication and their important role in the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB). From our schools to the Education Centre, these individuals play a vital role in supporting our students and staff, each and every day.

As with our entire organization, these staff members have taken on new challenges, while continuing to exhibit grace under pressure and while offering the high level of service that they are known for. As many will tell you, they are the glue that holds together the schools and departments they support, helping everyone to stay connected and engaged.

We invite you to let the administrative professionals at your school, or in your department, know how grateful you are – a kind word or thank-you can go a long way. Share success stories, and moments of gratitude from happy students, colleagues, parents, caregivers or families. Celebrate their achievements and your gratitude by acknowledging their contributions, publically by sharing on social media using the hashtag #AdminProfessionalsDay.
