Lamar CISD Celebrates May 13 as Public School Paraprofessionals' Day

May 11, 2020 | Community Relations

Please join Lamar CISD in recognizing May 13 as Public School Paraprofessionals' Day. 

At its April meeting, the Board of Trustees approved a resolution declaring Public School Paraprofessionals' Day. 

Texas Government Code 662 designated the second Wednesday in May as Paraprofessionals’ Day to recognize teacher aides and other assistants for their contribution to schools. Therefore, May 13, 2020 is proclaimed across Texas as Public School Paraprofessionals’ Day.

Public School Paraprofessionals are valuable members of educational teams, contributing in many ways beyond their most recognizable functions. Their assistance is vital in classrooms, gymnasiums, libraries, with special education students and more.

Public School Paraprofessionals also assist school personnel as trusted communicators with parents and community members. Their connection to the community aids in communication and fosters positive public relations.
