Nominate an Educator of the year

We have expanded our Educator of the Year program to honor not only classroom teachers but also counselors, specialists, para-professionals, nurses, etc.  Essentially, we want to have the opportunity to honor any district employee who cultivates positive relationships, contributes to an effective classroom, and has become a leader in our schools and community.  Each building will name their own educator of the year and one of those individuals will be named the SSSD Educator of the Year.

Educator of the year (EOY) Nominees in each building may be nominated by a colleague, parent and/or student. Either a letter of recommendation addressing “effective instruction”, “relationships”, and “demonstrated leadership” or the nomination form must be completed in order for the nominee to be considered. If you are nominating someone, please submit the appropriate paperwork to your building’s principal by May 3, 2019. Nomination forms and information can be found on the District website at

Thank You

To the Students, staff, parents and community: 

Please accept our heartfelt thanks for your participation in our recent book drive. Your generosity was simply awesome! 

Last Thursday we delivered 6400 books in 133 boxes to the children of Paradise, California and we cannot thank you enough for your spirit of giving. It is difficult to describe the devastation we saw in Paradise and yet the people we met had very positive attitudes and they are anxious to rebuild knowing it will take a very long time. Approximately 90% of the houses and 50% of the businesses burned but school goes on and the need for books is great. 

The children who had been attending Paradise Elementary are now going to school in nearby Oroville in a makeshift school to get them through the year. Since the middle school did not burn the hope is to have the children from Paradise Elementary attend school in the middle school next school year. 

The teachers from Paradise Elementary will go through the boxes of books this summer selecting ones appropriate for their particular grade level. Having firsthand knowledge of the quality of the books, we know they will be ecstatic when school starts next fall. 

Again, our sincere thanks for your help. 

Sincerely, Marcia and Steve Kaufman
