Student Ambassador

Congratulations to our own Ashley Jimenez for being selected as a Student Ambassador!  Superintendent Shafer welcomed Interim Paterson Mayor Jane Williams-Warren as the mayor launched an ambitious new program wherein she and various city directors, program heads and officials will interface with district students on a regular basis. The first two-hour meeting, planned and moderated by Executive Director of Information Services, Ms.Terry Corallo, took place at Central Office with the first cohort of preselected 7th and 8th grade student ambassadors. The mayor and the eager student reps got right down to business -- after a round of introductions, the students stated various concerns about quality-of-life issues that affect them, their families and their peers, followed by brainstorming programs and solutions the new student ambassadors could launch at their schools. The Student Ambassador program will continue the launch phase with two more cohorts, another 7th and 8th grade group followed by high school students.
