We regret to inform you that today,
long-time sixth grade teacher, Mrs. Cathy Nasierowski, has passed away due
to complications in her battle with cancer. This afternoon, students were
given the sad news. School counselors were present and available to students.
Your child may or may not have been in
her class, but may still experience grief regardless, as this loss is of deep
impact on your child’s friends, and the school district. Over the next few
days, or even next few months, you may find the following reactions of your
- The need to
tell or retell the event and associated memories
- Feelings of
guilt or anger
and difficulty concentrating
- Loss of
and repeated crying
- A feeling of
unreality about the event
- Neglect of
- Inactivity or
- Sadness and
hostile or unruly behavior
- Inability to
leading to accidents
Many of these signs are normal
reactions to grief. However, if these signs become apparent and continue for a
length of time, the administration, guidance staff and teachers invite and
encourage you to notify the school.
Should you have questions, or concerns
about your child, please do not hesitate to contact the Elementary School
