Published 7:21 pm Monday, July 9, 2018

In the next few weeks, Selma City School (SCS) employees will hit the streets in the community to share information with current and future students’ families.

“Community engagement is a priority for Selma City Schools,” Selma City Schools Superintendent Dr. Avis Williams said.

Williams said she has organized Team Selma to hit the streets and share the great things that are in store for students of the school district.

“Our goal is to let the Selma community know that we are super excited about the opportunity to serve and we look forward to an amazing new school year,” she said. “We are ready to take our school district to another level and we want to share our excitement with current and future parents.”

As the teams walk and make home visits, the team will share information with a “Did you know?” fact sheet.

“One of the changes for next year includes providing every student at R.B. Hudson Middle School with their own Win Book tablet as part of the new Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) Academy,” Williams said. “The academy will open in the fall of 2019.”

The walks will begin at 10 a.m. each scheduled day.

Today, the group will be at Cedar Park and Edgewood neighborhoods, Thursday, July 12 will be at Meadowview neighborhoods, Tuesday, July 17, the teams will be in the Kingston and Clark areas and Thursday, July 19, the teams will be in the Payne and Knox areas.

Volunteers are welcome to join the walks. Anyone interested can contact Williams at 334-874-1600 or by emailing her at avis.williams@selmacityschools.org.
