Minnesota Declares Paraprofessional Week - January 27-31

Governor Tim Walz has proclaimed January 27 – 31, Paraprofessional Recognition Week. Paraprofessionals are individuals who work in a variety of positions in a school district. Their roles include, but are not limited to instructional assistants, Title I paraprofessionals, pupil support assistants, special education paraprofessionals, job coaches, lunch room and playground assistants, hall monitors, media center assistants, and health office assistants.

During Paraprofessional Recognition Week, it is appropriate to celebrate the contributions of paraprofessionals working in schools.

See more information on the Minnesota Department of Education Paraprofessional webpage.

HLWW Public Schools thanks all of our paraprofessionals for the great work they do every day for students!  Thank you!
