This week, Exeter-West Greenwich can be proud of two amazing recognitions. First, Junior High School Social Studies Teacher, Mr. Andrew Wallace, was recognized by the Commissioner of Education, Channel 10 News and Hasbro as the recipient of the Golden Apple Award for outstanding teachers. Mr. Wallace was completely surprised when members of the band, followed by administrators and his family paraded into his classroom with news cameras, Patrice Wood from Channel 10 and Commissioner of Education Dr. Ken Wagner for the official announcement.
The segment aired on Channel 10 last evening (5/19/16), and a link is provided below:

Last evening, the Exeter-West Greenwich Regional School District's Visual Arts Department was recognized as the 2016 recipient of the "Gift of Art to the State of Rhode Island." The award recognizes our district for its commitment to the arts, and the incredible teachers that make the magic happen. Ms. Beaulieu, Mrs. LaFrenaye, Mrs. Ray, Ms. Pichette and Ms. Lind were recognized at the official ceremony, along with the artists who created the nine works that will be forever displayed at the URI Feinstein campus/Department of Education building in Providence.
Several of the artists and their families were present for the ceremony, and we should be so proud of all of them! All of the works of art, representing students from grade Kindergarten through 12, can be viewed by clicking on the link below:
