Nice weather meant a large turnout for the WINGS Educational Foundation Picnic in the Park on Friday, May 4, at the Washington Fairgrounds.

The event featured a BBQ dinner and plenty of family fun. There were bounce houses, a balloon-bending clown, face painting, hula-hoops, and other games and activities.  

Several of the School District of Washington’s musical ensembles performed, including the Washington High School and Middle School vocal and band groups.

The menu featured pulled-pork sandwiches, pork steaks, nachos, and hot dogs and pork burgers for children.

The WINGS Educational Foundation hosts the picnic and other events to raise money for our schools.

Earlier in the day, WINGS volunteers delivered BBQ lunches to local businesses as part of the fundraiser.

Melissa Feldman, early childhood special education teacher at the Early Learning Center, has received the Most Inclusive Teacher Award, presented by the Adam Morgan Foundation.

Feldman, who has been at the Early Learning Center for four years, was nominated by a parent. A committee narrowed the list of nominations down to three candidates from three different school districts, with the winner being decided by an online vote.

Feldman won the online vote.

The Adam Morgan Foundation recognizes dedicated centers and practitioners in the St. Louis metro area.

“I was surprised to win the award. It’s an honor just to be nominated. Thanks to everyone who voted for me,” Feldman said. “I’m on a great team here at the Early Learning Center. Every person on my team deserves this award. Elizabeth Mades, Lorna Schulz and Jessica Petty also have big big influences on me."

“It’s exciting to have Mrs. Feldman honored,” said Early Learning Center Director Dr. Dawn Hellebusch. “I’m proud of her and our team. It’s a reflection of her, the Early Learning Center, and the School District of Washington.”

Melissa and her husband Ryan have one son, Lincoln, and a baby girl coming in August.
