Happy New Year!

New Faces

It’s been a happy start to our new school year here at Super Stars. To begin, a couple of staff members started their position this month! Our staff list is located on our website under About Us, if you ever want to see who’s serving in the office.

The Start of School

Our Group Leaders also began their journey with Super Stars this month! We started with orientation and training, which lasted two weeks in the beginning of August. There, our Group Leaders learned their duties as Americorps members and how to be educators for our students.

After their intensive training, it was time for them to start at their school site. From what I’ve seen and heard, they’re doing an amazing job with their students and are making great steps towards changing lives with literacy. Please cheer them on throughout the year!
