District Announcements
Theunis Dey Named 2015 National School of Character
The Wayne Township Public Schools are pleased to announce that Character.org, a national advocate and leader for the character education movement, named Theunis Dey Elementary as a 2015 School of Character. The Schools of Character Program is not a competition, but rather an opportunity to go through a rigorous process of feedback and coaching, as well as recognition for growth and excellence in the area of character development through Character.org's 11 Principles of Effective Character Education framework.  Theunis Dey will hold its designation for five years.  Since its inception, Character.org has awarded over 300 schools with the distinction of a National School of Character.  In 2015, along with Theunis Dey, 63 additional schools and 3 districts were named across the United States.
Summer Reading Lists
The 2015 Summer Reading Lists are now available.  To access the reading lists for elementary, middle and high school click on the QUICKLINKS tab on the top left corner of this page.
