Haverhill Public Schools is pleased to announce the appointment of Helene Levine as the district ELA supervisor. Helene is a seasoned educator who started her educational career as a first grade teacher in the Bronx. This is where she realized the power of teaching young children to read and the importance of literacy for all. She went on to become a fourth grade teacher, staff developer, curriculum specialist and elementary principal. Before coming to Haverhill as the Supervisor of ELA, she worked at the Department of Elementary and Secondary in Malden as a NE ELA Content/Support Lead. Her passion for literacy and improving instruction for all students is at the heart of all she believes in. She enjoys reading, needlepoint and spending time with her 13-year old granddaughter.

A message from the Superintendent
It is with profound sadness that I write this letter to let you know that one of our Haverhill High School seniors tragically passed away last night. The school community sends our condolences and thoughts to the family and friends of the student. Today, we began processing this tragic news and coping with our grief by offering counseling and bereavement support services to all students and staff.
The passing of a friend is a difficult and challenging event that can generate a high level of anxiety and distress in many children. Young people often have limited experience coping with loss and may be confused as to how to handle grief. If you feel that your child is having difficulty, we encourage you to discuss their thoughts and feelings to help them to work through their sadness. I have included some resources below from Riverside Trauma Center to support you in these difficult conversations. Staff from Riverside will be at Haverhill High School tomorrow and available to families by phone as requested. Please contact the school at 978-374-5700 if you feel that further follow-up with your child would be helpful.
On Wednesday, September 26, a memorial candlelight ceremony will be held at 6:00 p.m. on the athletic fields behind the high school. In the event of rain, the ceremony will be moved inside to the gymnasium. I hope to have the community of Haverhill and Hillie Nation join us in remembering one of our own.
Thank you for your support as we move forward. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family during this time of loss and grief.
Superintendent of Schools
