Super's Bowl Community Event

The fifth annual Super’s Bowl will be hosted at Brooks Field at the Gus Vanderbeek Athletic Complex on Friday, June 3, 2016 at 6 pm (no rain date).  The Super’s Bowl is a flag football competition between the three district schools played by employees.  As in previous years, the event is free to the community.

Be a part of the school district’s history and sign a puzzle piece to be #allin4theVille!  Upon arrival, attendees can sign a puzzle piece that will ultimately be displayed in the Board of Education conference room.  The puzzle will represent the #allin4theVille partnerships that make the Ville a great place to learn and work!

Albert Einstein once said, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”  In the Ville, we believe in a collaborative approach to learning and engagement that includes students, district employees, parents, community members, and community partnerships.  This year's Super’s Bowl theme is partnerships.  We want to use this opportunity to celebrate ALL of the community providers, organizations, and companies that assist in the learning process of our children.  Without your efforts and contributions, our impact would be marginalized.  We are #allin4theVille!

The Super’s Bowl event is a friendraiser community event.  This year, contributions will be donated to the Bristol-Myers Squibb Children's Hospital.  The Hospital has served and will continue to serve as a wonderful resource to our children and school community.  Please join us in supporting the Hospital.

The festivities begin at 5:30 pm with the opening of our Snack Shack.  Proceeds from the Snack Shack will benefit the Somerville High School Music Booster Association.  Our teachers and administrators will take the field to warm-up for the games, with Pep Band performing at 6 pm.  Students, parents and community members are encouraged to attend and demonstrate their school spirit and cheer on their staff and schools.

If you cannot join in person, be sure to follow along with the Twitter hashtag #supersbowl.  The Pioneer Studios will be filming the event this year.  Highlights will be posted on my YouTube channel.
