Superior – The students of Superior Head Start recently toured the Superior United States Post Office as part of their school readiness activities.

In preparation for the tour, the children created a letter during class time. The children each took turns to mail their letter(s) accompanied by teaching staff and parent volunteers. While there, the Superior Postmaster joined the Head Start teacher to give a brief synopsis on the role of the post office, including how the mail is delivered, the cost involved, the importance of knowing your post office box number and combination, knowing who is allowed to pick up your mail and the importance of learning how to write.

The children were told that literacy, science, math, communication and physical skills are very important in postal work. Some of the children commented that they would like to deliver the mail while others stated that it would take all day to “get their mail in a box”, while others said, “the jeep comes to my house.” The children also asked questions, such as why letters need stamps, why some people have big boxes and others smaller boxes, and why some people get mail at their house. The majority of the children asked how the post office knows where to take all their, and other people’s, letters.

The Superior Head Start children will participate in a SNAP presentation on Tues., Mar. 4t at 9:30 a.m., as part of their Nutrition activities. The week’s theme focuses on “Being Healthy.”.

On Wed., Mar. 5, at 10 a.m., the children will participate in READ to KIDS Day. The Superior Head Start students will receive free books and a gift bag filled with school readiness items purchased by the Pinal County Attorneys’ RICO fund grant. They will listen to stories throughout the day, indoors and outdoors. The Head Start children will also celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday.

“The public is invited to come read to the children! Please come make a difference in a child’s life by reading a story to the children. Books will be available throughout the classroom to read, or feel free to bring one of your favorite stories to read! “ says Teresita Martinez Olmos, Superior Head Start Teacher.

The weeks of March 10 and March 17, Superior Head Start will be on a two week spring break. Class will resume on Mon., Mar. 24.
