SEL staff members from across the district are wearing pink t-shirts this week as a sign of unity, love and support on behalf of fellow teacher Melissa Canowitz. A physical education instructor in the district for the past twenty-years, Ms. Canowitz has consistently demonstrated a strong dedication to the students of the South Euclid Lyndhurst Schools, having served as the head of the PTA and coach of the tennis team. Ms. Canowitz is also a resident of the district.
The staff at Memorial Junior High surprised Ms. Canowitz by presenting a “Team Canowitz” t-shirt signed by the entire staff before the start of school on Monday, May 15th. Other district buildings including Greenview Upper Elementary wore “Team Canowitz” t-shirts as a sign of support as well. The SEL Schools are extremely proud to witness the outpouring of support by teachers, staff and students on behalf of Ms. Canowtiz, and wish her a full recovery.
