Greeting Superior Families,
Another successful school year is coming to an end! Reflecting on the past school year makes us realize how fortunate we are at Superior Street Elementary. Our school has been successful because of the wonderful, collaborative partnership between students, staff members, and parents. Our students are meeting high measure of performance because of the excellent teaching from our staff and the support from our parents. We must recognize our students for their leadership abilities, perseverance, and effort displayed throughout the school year.
We would like to thank our wonderful PTA and executive board: Ross Smith-Knight (Ways&Means), Roxanne Pollack (Secretary), Allison D'Angelo (Treasurer and Teacher Rep.), Sue Pickup (Financial Secretary), Katrina DeHaven (Historian), Adrienne Dao (Corresponding Secretary), Vanessa Farrington (Parliamentarian) and Katie Simonoff (Membership). Aspecial thank you to Layla Vitale; she has completed her 2nd year term as PTA President. Layla has provided excellent leadership and support to the PTA, the school staff and administration, and most importantly to the students of Superior ES. Job well done!
Thank you to all the parents on the PTA and the various committees for dedicating much time to provide valuable activities, programs, and events to our school. Without your support and dedication, we would not have been able to have such wonderful and successful school activities including school fund-raisers, volunteering, staff appreciation week, valet program, Computerwise Kids, annual Book Fair and more! We are grateful for your support and we look forward to next year.
During the next few weeks of May and the week in June, staff and students are busy with teaching and learning, and assessments. Please see the calendar of events in this newsletter for specific dates/times. The 5th grade Culmination Ceremony well be held on Friday, June 7th at 10:30am at Chatsworth High School. Friday, June 7th, is the last day of school for students, which is an early dismissal day. Dismissal begins at 12:43pm.
Unfortunately, at the end of the school year, we will say farewell to several of our staff members. Ms Karen Pauley (1st Grade Teacher) and Mrs. Michelle Prince (Special Education Assistant) are retiring! Additionally, Ms. Ruby McCabe, our teacher assistant and Ms. Breanne Lawes, one of our Special Education Assistants, are relocating. We would like to thank them for all their dedication and commitment to our students during their time at Superior. On behalf of the Superior staff and school community, I wish all of them the best in their future endeavors!
One last note...Our valet program is running smooth! We want to encourage ALL families to use valet! The valet is to help make drop off easier and lessen street and crosswalk congestion. Thank you, families, for your cooperation and steadfastness to keep our students safe!
Enjoy the upcoming summer. Have a happy, relaxing, and safe time with your children. We look forward to seeing everyone on our return for the 2019-2020 school year. SAVE THE DATE: 2ND Annual Welcome Back School Picnic, August 23rd-Time to be determined.
