Thank You! CCSD Appreciates Its Administrative Professionals & Volunteers
During the week of April 18-24, 2010, the Charleston County School District (CCSD) publicly recognizes and appreciates the hard work and dedication shown throughout the year by its administrative professionals and volunteers.
Since 1952, the International Association of Administrative Professionals has honored office workers by sponsoring Administrative Professionals' Week. Today, it is one of the largest workplace observances outside of employee birthdays and major holidays. The event is celebrated worldwide, bringing together millions of people for community events, educational seminars, and individual workplace activities to recognize support staff. This year, Wednesday, April 21 is Administrative Professionals’ Day, and CCSD thanks its approximately 150 bookkeepers, secretaries, and administrative assistants who work every day to help make the future bright for for every student.
This week, CCSD also celebrates the 37th annual National Volunteer Week and formally recognizes the contributions of these individuals, who tirelessly invest their skills and resources. Approximately 3,400 volunteers— including parents, business partners, and other community members— generously donate their time each year to Charleston County's public schools and students. The impact of these individuals can be seen district-wide. Volunteers provide tutoring and mentoring; participate in the annual "Principal for a Day" and "Day of Caring" initiatives held each Fall; serve on Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs), School Improvement Councils, and Neighborhood Planning Teams; provide school beautification assistance throughout the year; organize special events; and assist with administrative tasks. Learn more about CCSD's volunteer opportunities by visiting the district's Community page, contacting your local school, or calling the district's Director of Public Affairs and Volunteers at (843) 937-6506.
