Congratulations to West Platte HS Chemistry teacher, Brad Lynch!

On Saturday Mr. Brad Lynch, high school chemistry teacher, was presented with the Howard Gadberry Teacher Award at the 67th Greater Kansas City Science and Engineering Fair. This award recognizes one teacher every year who teaches STEM classes and shows outstanding effort toward the motivation of students in scientific exploration. This is a big honor for a teacher from a school the size of West Platte.

Mr. Lynch was nominated by a colleague for his unwavering commitment to his students and the West Platte School District for the last 28 years. He organizes the West Platte Science Fair, which is in its 49th year, and makes it possible for students to receive recognition and awards at the Greater Kansas City Fair every year.

Thank you Mr. Lynch for your tireless efforts to lead our students through a project based learning experience that is both an effective and enjoyable way to explore science!

Message from Parents as Teachers:

On Friday, January 26th, West Platte hosted our first annual Stuffed Animal Clinic for all early childhood students in the district. Each child was invited to bring a stuffed animal and work alongside many medical professionals to help their sick stuffed animal feel better.

A huge thank you goes out to our volunteers and to the West Platte Education Foundation grant for making this special day possible for our little ones.
