Waynesville Schools would like to recognize this third week of September as National Construction Appreciation Week.  Alongside the Ground-Breaking and Ribbon-Cutting Ceremonies, Wayne Local would like to encourage the students of Waynesville Elementary to get into the spirit by wearing your best "construction" gear on Tuesday to school.  Please make sure that the gear is within the guidelines of school-appropriate.  All students in the elementary building will be attending the morning ceremony for students and staff. 

As described in the National Day Calendar:

National Construction Appreciation Week recognizes the dedicated, hard-working men and women instrumental in the development of our infrastructure. The truth is, construction contributes much more to our nation than job sites, orange cones, pouring concrete and traffic delays. This five-day tribute celebrates the sacrifice and tireless effort put forth to keep our country going.

From homes to highways to hospitals – the impact of the construction industry is everywhere you look. Without construction, there would be no transportation, manufacturing or commerce. Throughout the country, the industry affects the lives of every person in America. Likewise, the positive impact of those who work in the industry extends far beyond the boundaries of the job site.

It’s time for everyone to know what we’ve known all along: Construction is a valuable and rewarding career that deserves to be acknowledged!
