  • School Goes to Students

    If the kids are not going to school, sometimes school goes to them. Somers High School student life coordinator Brenda O'Shea and dean of students Marc Hattem, along with Somers Middle School assistant principal Jennifer Mangone, have made many trips to check on struggling students, but also to celebrate eLearners who are doing well in this challenging environment. Teachers have been asked to nominate students who deserve recognition for the work they are doing while eLearning. "They are always happy to see us," says O'Shea. "It can be hard to be noticed when you are on Zoom and you don’t have that physical connection. Hearing that their teacher was seeing and noticing their hard word matters to them."
