Join us at the Annual Retirement Celebration May 17

With 21 employees retiring this year, it's hard to believe they have cumulatively served over 500 years in Westminster Public Schools. Help us recognize their commitment to our students and families by celebrating their careers at the annual Retirement Celebration.

This year’s event is scheduled for May 17 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Westminster High School café. Chartwells will cater the evening and we’ll hear from the high school’s Jazz Band as guests enter. Each retiree will receive a personalized scrapbook, crystal globe and flowers designed by the high school’s horticulture department. All are invited to attend to wish their colleagues and peers well in their retirement.
