SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENTS
TEACHER OF THE YEAR


We here at Somerville are delighted to announce that Mia Sarnella Buzzard has been named Somerville Teacher of the Year!


Mrs. Buzzard's passion for teaching began at 5 years old when she created a classroom of stuffed animals at her home in West Milford, New Jersey.  She officially became a teacher after she graduated from Providence College with dual certification in Elementary and Special Education.  Then, she became a graduate assistant at Providence College and received her M.Ed. in Literacy.  Mia taught at Hillside School in Allendale for four years and has been teaching at Somerville School for six years.  Mrs. Buzzard loves teaching first grade!  She proud to be a part of the important reading and writing development that takes place in this magical year.  She appreciates how her students make her smile and laugh every day and hopes to do the same for them.


OPEN CIRCLE BOOKS 2013-2014

For the month of March, Somerville will be reading A Ball for Daisy, by Chris Raschka.

Daisy, a frisky dog, plays happily with her big red ball, as full-page illustrations and action vignettes start this wordless tale of the discovery of a friend. Daisy is taken to the park to play with her ball, only to have a brown dog snatch it away and break it. Daisy's distress at the deflated ball is apparent. Taken home by her young mistress, she is inconsolable. At the park next day, however, they meet the brown dog, his mistress, and her big blue ball. The dogs play happily together until their mistresses wave goodbye. Daisy is pleased to get to take the blue ball home. Raschka's typical ink, watercolor, and gouache almost slap-dash images generate happy emotion as they create just enough background and characters to add conviction to the adventure of this most appealing pup. No words are required to express either her joy in playing with her ball or her depression when it is broken. The double page with eight sequential vignettes depicting her loss is particularly effective, as is the final picture of contentment with the new ball.

The Somerville Song
Somerville, Oh Somerville
It's the shool for us ..
Somerville, Oh Somerville
In this we really trust ..
.. We start in Kindergarten
We learn so much each day
We love our teachers always
There is no other way

We learn to read and write
We learn our numbers too
We learn in art and library
and music, p.e., whew!

Our mascot is the leopard
A big cat that has spots
They can run so very fast
And climb so high, high spots

Our school was named for Irwin
His last name, Somerville
He was a high school principal
He had an iron will

International Day and night
The lip sync, field day too
The science fair and bingo
Just to name a few

Most of us have been here since
Kindergarten 'til now
It gets us ready for B.F.
And makes us all say "Wow"!
