Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2021- 2022 school year.

My name is Samantha Souvatzis and I am your new Parent Association President. I would also like to introduce Lateisha McCleary, and Soledad Price. Our children are in Kindergarten and 1st grade.

I have a master’s in education and presently working in the Banking industry. I have 15 years’ experience as an educator and also as a parent of a child being taught in the public school system.

Our expectations for this year, where the pandemic has forced us to be more innovative and creative, are to serve you and your children based on your needs and concerns. In addition, it is proven that the more you are involved in your child’s education the more academically successful your child will be. I want to bring my experiences to you by giving you the necessary resources to ensure that you are being supported educationally, emotionally as well as your well-being.

We as the Parent Association have a vast amount of experience, in the professional and education world, that we want to share with you.

We are attaching a parent survey. Please fill out and either return it to your child’s teacher or send it back electronically no later than January 3, 2022.

Please do not hesitate to contact me via text at 856-209-4834.

We look forward to a great year and working with you. Again, we can not stress how your involvement is one of the most important things you can do for your child’s success.


Kind Regards,

P.S. 8 Parent Association
