Educators of Influence in Pottstown Schools
Today is Father's Day (although you won't read it until Monday )and while there is little argument that our parents have an immeasurable impact on who we become as adults, lets take a moment to recognize those who are probably second in that line of influential people -- Our teachers.
So, before we all head off into the summer haze of camps, beaches and pools, let's take a moment to appreciate our teachers and to offer a little help, here a submission from our friend Joohn Armato that slipped through the cracks until now.
The children who attend Rupert Elementary School are lucky to have a group of teachers who go above, beyond and out the door to support their students.
This is what they did in April.
The Rupert Elementary I’MPACT team went out to visit students from each grade level at their home to congratulate them and their families, and to acknowledge student successes during the Third Marking Period.
I’MPACT is an acronym for I’m Pottstown Action Community Team. Its mission is to “Celebrate Learning” with positive communication of activities happening at school through the building of relationships with community members.
The team makes door-to-door visits to surprise students and their families with certificates of achievement, and I’MPACT Winner shirts.
Students are congratulated for their hard work, citizenship, and positive behavior. The I’MPACT Team consists of teachers, support staff, parents, and administrators from Rupert Elementary School Students
Students visited were: Avon Jones, Eric Silva, Arthur Nihart, John Kabilko, Sarahi Gurdado-Ramos, Logan Pouchan, Owen Thornton
Those who did the visiting were:
Matt Moyer, Stacey Bauman, Laurie Gresko, Cindy Bartolucci, Lauren Crean, Corina Miller, Jayne Burke, Rine Strohecker, Britney Oxenford, Lisa Stephenson, Diana Dotterer, and Christine Fiorillo
