Soup with the Supe
Monday, December 12, 2011 6:35 AM


Last Thursday’s "Soup with the Supe" event provided participants an effective channel for voicing their concerns to District Leadership. The NEMS Concert Band and the Edison Choir provided the musical backdrop for a dinner that included a choice of soups (lentil or chicken), humus, and chips -- all supplied by Holy Land Restaurant on Central Avenue. After dining, the 80 to 90 community members in attendance bombarded Superintendent Bernadeia Johnson with questions ranging from the quality of school lunches to the politics of School Choice. The meeting, which was anticipated to end at 7:30 or so, ran until well after 8 PM.
