Rotary weekly meeting

September 13, 2022

Pictured above: Missy Wilkins, Dir. of Curriculum; Sherri Nichols, Superintendent of Schools; Kelly Ryan, Dir. of Special Ed; President, Karen Longo
Our program today was to hear the future plans Sherri Nicols has in store for the Springfield School District.  Sherri offered ideas and plans.  Questions were asked about the lack of staffing, bussing issues, and how we can help as a club.  Sherri talked about "The Portrait of A Graduate".  What does it look like?  What is needed for a student to graduate and be a successful contributor to society.  Her team is developing a survey for the community, parents and students to hear from us as to what we hope to see in the district.  As a club we can volunteer and come back into the schools to read to students.  The district website has a simple volunteer form we can complete to participate.  Food insecurity is a major focus for the club this year and Sherri shared that there are many issues around food insecurity.  Trying to take away the stigma of taking/receiving food at no cost; finding a way to get student clothing washed as some students are experiencing homelessness.
