KENOSHA, Wis. (Monday, May 8, 2023) – Kenosha Unified School District celebrated Recognition Week between Monday, May 1, 2023, and Friday, May 5, 2023. KUSD’s recognition program acknowledges individuals along their career path for their service to the district and public education. This program is a part of the district’s culture and celebrates many wonderful staff within the district, as well as those who support our staff and students.
Recognition Week consists of the KUDOS (Kenosha Unified’s Dedicated Outstanding Staff) rewards, wherein employees with 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 years of service are thanked for their continuous service to KUSD. It also embodies Gratitude Gifts for retirees who are embarking on their next chapter in life. The week ends with the Spark Awards when individuals who have been nominated and selected for their dedication to the students and families we serve, as well as the education profession in general, are celebrated throughout the district.
The Spark Awards recognize district staff as well as KUSD’s Friends in Education.
