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: email@example.com, fax: 856-667-0298, mail: 53 Haddonfield Rd., Ste. 306, Cherry Hill, NJ 08002.
