Week of April 14th-18th

Bright Stars

Rachel Mikel- It's been said by many already, but I wanted to recognize Rachel again for the outstanding job the Starside choir did last night at the district choir concert. It was a fun night to watch all of the kids perform with their peers.

Summer Learning Program

Thank you again for submitting all of your recommendations for the Summer Learning Program. These letters will go out in the mail on Monday, April 14th. Below is the email from Christy James with the information for applying to work the program.

Good Morning!

The Department of Teaching & Learning is recruiting teachers, paraprofessionals, and ELL aides to work with students who need more instruction and time to master skills in English and math or to recover high school English or math credit. This year we will offer Summer Learning Programs during June for elementary and middle school students and credit recovery options for high school students.

Summer School Teachers

The success of this program depends upon the commitment from our teachers. Teachers will be paid $25.00 per hour to teach summer school. Teachers who teach in the elementary and middle school programs work four hours per day (three hours of instruction plus one hour of planning time). High school teachers are paid up to 8 hours per day.

Summer School Para Professionals/ ELL Aides

Limited Para Professional/Aide positions will also be available. Staff hired to support the Summer School programs as Paras and Aides will be paid their regular hourly rate.


If you are interested in teaching or working as a Para Professional/Aide in one of the Summer Learning programs, please complete the following online application:
