Say good­bye to your fa­vor­ite teach­ers and edu­cat­ors in Star

Amidst great tur­moil in the Phil­adelphia pub­lic school sys­tem, our com­munit­ies’ schools are los­ing valu­able and cher­ished staff mem­bers to lay­offs. The stu­dents and par­ents who have fostered great re­la­tion­ships with these edu­cat­ors de­serve a chance to form­ally “say their good­byes” to these staff mem­bers who have been laid off, and Star is the place to do so.

If you or your stu­dent(s) would like to sub­mit a “Who I’ll Miss From My School and Why” state­ment to the pa­per, please send a short (less than 140 words) state­ment, a snap­shot of your­self, what school the staff mem­ber is from, and what neigh­bor­hood you live in to: Ed­it­or Mi­kala Jam­is­on: mjam­is­, fax: 856-667-0298, mail: 53 Had­don­field Rd., Ste. 306, Cherry Hill, NJ 08002.

Thank you!
