Retired teachers share memories and laughter during annual luncheon recognition

Retired teachers pose for group photo after 2nd Annual OSD Retired Educators Luncheon at Knox

What a joy it was last week to welcome retired OSD teachers to the 2nd Annual OSD Retired Educators Luncheon. This group (and many more through the years) of dedicated teachers have served thousands of students in our district, and we appreciate each and every one of them.

Superintendent Patrick Murphy welcomed the honored guests, who learned about opportunities to stay connected with the district. The former educators shared memories of their years in the Olympia School District, as well as what they enjoy most about retirement.

Avanti High School students Ainsley Austin, Josephine Mortinson and Avery Savin, members of the group “Aja,” also performed three songs for the retirees.

We look forward to continuing to see our retirees in our schools as substitutes, volunteers, or simply cheering for students during art performances, school assemblies, athletic events or other school functions.

Be sure to follow the district social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, to see photos of events such as this one that occur daily in our schools.
