Paton Wins Two John P. Collins Awards

The Shrewsbury Education Foundation has awarded two John P. Collins Awards for Excellence to the Paton staff.

Jayne Wilkin, Principal of Paton, was recognized for her work in Leadership.

Mary Benjamin, a child-specific aide at Paton, was recognized for her work as a Paraprofessional.

The Paton community is invited to the Shrewsbury Education Foundation Grants and J.P. Collins Awards Recognition Dinner to support our two educators. The dinner is also a fundraising event to support the grants, and will take place on Saturday, January 19 at Cyprian Keyes Golf Club. The cost is $65 per person, plus there will be a cash bar.  A portion of the ticket fee is tax-deductible.

More information about the dinner will become available soon in the Community Bulletin which is sent out by the Shrewsbury Public Schools.

We hope to see all of you there!

The Shrewsbury Education Foundation (SEF) works to stimulate, strengthen and support the creation and implementation of innovative educational programs and enrichment activities that benefit students of the Shrewsbury Public Schools.
Since its inception in 1992, SEF has awarded over $250,000 in grants to Shrewsbury Public schools for innovative programs reaching students at every level, from preschool to high school.
Through its all-volunteer effort supported by charitable contributions, SEF fills a vital gap for Shrewsbury students. SEF grants allow dedicated educators create new learning vehicles that cannot be supported as financial resources have tightened. SEF grants encourage creative approaches to educating the whole child—further meeting their intellectual, psychosocial and health needs
