Now that the weather is finally changing (we've had a great stretch of warm temps), everyone is spending a lot more time outdoors. The flowers are blooming and the trees are full of leaves! Spring has finally sprung. We asked our ever so talented WNED staffers to grab a camera or camera phone and snap some shots of the season in bloom. Take a look at a few of our photos and connect with us on Instagram to see more. Follow WNED_WBFO and look for our photos with #wnedspringinbloom, #WNED, #WBFO, or #Classical945WNED.

How often do you speak to your child’s teacher? How often do you thank them for their work? Tuesday, May 7 is National Teacher Day. Please take this opportunity to think about everything your children’s teachers do for them every day. Your child spends most of their waking hours in school. It’s really like a second home. A teacher’s job goes beyond academics and test preparation. Your children are also learning social and emotional skills from their teachers. Who should they go to for help when being bullied? Their teacher. Who can show them how they should respond when an administrator says “Good Morning?” Their teacher. Who frequently gives guidance in developing and maintaining friendships? Their teacher. Who disciplines them when they step out of line (maybe literally!)? Their teacher. Of course, much of this is learned from parents, but teachers are really a valuable support that many people don’t think about. Teachers provide much more than test preparation. What can you give your children’s teachers? A simple, heart-felt thank you goes a long way.
