10 Ways to Celebrate Classified School Employees Week

Classified School Employees Week (CEW) is right around the corner, on March 6 to 10! This is an important opportunity for communities across Oregon to recognize and thank the hardworking classified professionals who keep our schools running and help students learn.

Our theme for CEW this year is: Leadership, Effectiveness, Advocacy, Diplomacy/Liderazgo, Eficacia, Apoyo, Diplomacia. In both English and Spanish, the words make the acronym LEAD, recognizing classified as leaders in education. The theme was submitted by Julie Wilborn of Corvallis Chapter 2.

How will you recognize the classified professionals in your school? Read on for a few ideas. OSEA has created posters, cards and more to help you celebrate CEW 2023!
