Superior – The students and staff of Superior Head Start had their first day of the new school year on Monday, Aug. 25. There were many new students and parents, joining the veteran families, to tour and visit the center. As they explored, the children gave the staff a charming peek into their personalities, showing something of their strengths and abilities before ever a formal lesson had begun.

While some children roamed the center, independently, peeking into each area, others held a parental hand while pointing to books on the shelves, the Circle Time carpet and selected hollow wooden blocks which were set out for play.

Many children exclaimed “Look it! It’s a kitchen!” One child announced, “I like school.” Others asked, “Where is the swing?” One child walked into the center and bravely called out a greeting, “Hi, Teacher!”, and, another simply smiled and hugged Teacher Teresita. One child held a large plastic dinosaur, and, while using a toy stethoscope to “listen to the dinosaur’s heartbeat,” said, “He’s okay at school.” All commented they are ready to start school!

“Wish us well as we begin another program year focusing on safety, nutrition, literacy, health and other various school readiness activities,” said Teresita Martinez-Olmos.“

The teaching staff will model safety in & outside the classroom, healthy eating habits, conscious discipline, and, the importance of class agreements to help keep children and staff safe,” she continued.

This year marks the National Head Start’s 50th year of providing services. The Pinal Gila Community Child Services, Inc. has been in service for 40 years.

The 2014-15 PGCCS Head Start staff includes, Hilda Cardenas Site Manager, Teresita Martinez-Olmos Teacher-PIC, Terry Gonzales Assistant Teacher, and LaToya Coronado-Alvarado Classroom Support Aide. Of course, Superior Head Start invites members of the community to volunteer, as well.
