PUEBLO - The new superintendent of Pueblo City Schools saw first-hand how her student's are keeping their skills sharp during the summer. Doctor Constance Jones was recently hired by the D60 board of education from a district in Fort Myers, Florida.
The life-long educator and school administrator visited with students and teachers at Minnequa Elementary Thursday morning who were celebrating the completion of their summer academy.
"This is such an important program to keep your skills going through the summer, and even though it was a 14 day window, you can still get a lot accomplished," Jones said.
The voluntary program aims to prepare students for the next grade level by focusing on improving their abilities in reading, writing and math.
Jones says she is excited to be in Pueblo and hopes to expand community involvement in the schools in the months ahead.
