Superintendent's Message - May 2017

Dear Bulldog Community, 

The month of May is a busy time in the Garfield Heights City Schools. Specifically, this is a month where teachers, principals and administrators have the opportunity to value the accomplishments their students have made during the preceding school year. I thank the community for the support of the events that have already taken place this month, that essentially showcase the skills and talents of our students. For those interested in supporting our district, here are some of the remaining events for the month of May:
  • High School Sports Banquet, taking place on May 18, 2017 at the High School at 6:30 p.m.
  • Maple Leaf Awards Night, taking place at Center for Performing Arts on Wednesday, May 17 at 6 p.m.
  • Theater Awards, taking place at the Center for Performing Arts, on Saturday, May 20 at 5 p.m.
  • Elmwood Awards Night, taking place at the Center for Performing Arts on Monday, May 22 at 6 p.m.
  • Middle School 8th Grade Awards Night, taking place at the Middle School on Monday, May 22 at 6 p.m.
  • Middle School Sports Banquet, taking place at the Middle School on Tuesday, May 23 at 6 p.m.
  • Last Day of School for students is Thursday, May 25, 2017
  • Commencement is Friday, May 26, 2017 at Music Hall Beginning at 6:30 p.m.
In addition, our Students of Promise organization will be taking the spring college and exposure tour on Thursday, May 18th, Friday, May 19th and Monday, May 22nd. In addition to exposing our students to colleges, there will be a tour of the Birmingham Civil Rights Museum, Georgia Aquarium, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Site.
Summaries and more specific information of all of these events, and so much more, can be found by visiting the district at our website. We strongly encourage the community to find a way to attend any, or all of these events so that they can see how the students of our district at all ages are taking advantage of, and seizing, the opportunities presented to them.
The Board of Education should know that our William Foster Ambassadors are taking part of a special “Acting Course” in partnership with Jennings Hall and the Ohio Arts Council. Already having taken a field trip twice in the last few weeks to Jennings Hall, a representative from the Ohio Arts Council is teaching our students, along with senior citizen residents at Jennings Hall, how to act in three plays… Peter Pan, Cinderella and the Wizard of Oz. A special thanks goes out to Jen Huncharek who is attending with our students. This is a tremendous opportunity for our elementary students, to interact with another generation in a meaningful and educational way.
We would like to thank Mr. Benjamin, Mr. Keshock, Mr. Pope, Mr. Pernod and Ms. Carey for a wonderful school year of plays and musical concerts. As usual, our student’s talents far exceed everyone’s expectations.
The month of May is about opportunities in the Garfield Heights City Schools, and it’s a great time for the community to learn more about our students’ accomplishments.
