Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! The start of a new school year is always an exciting time, not only for students, but for families and staff. At Warrensville Heights City School District, we continue the important work outlined in our mission to “creating an educational environment that promotes curiosity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration while empowering scholars to be responsible, contributing members of our community, nation and world.”
On August 15, more than 1700 pre-K through 12th grade scholars will return to school eager to see friends, participate in a variety of sports and activities and engage in learning. Our staff is committed unlocking the potential of every student to help them be successful in this work.
WHCSD has invested in positively impacting the way our scholars learn. We continue to provide a successful start to early learning with our four-star-rated, pre-K program. As scholars grow and develop, WHCSD will further refine and develop literacy through multiple mediums, including integrating teaching and learning technology with a 1:1 Chromebook initiative at the high school level. And in our middle and elementary schools, every scholar will utilize technology on a daily basis.
WHCSD ensures our facilities meet our scholars’ needs. This fall marks the start of construction for the new pre-K through fifth grade building with the anticipated completion date the fall of 2020. On November 6, 2018 we need the Tri-Cities’ support to build a new middle/high School.
I feel a renewed sense of excitement for the start of this school year because of the energy our scholars, staff, parents and community bring to our school community and all the possibilities that working together provide. WHCSD excels because of this collective effort, focus and commitment. I look forward to the work we will accomplish this year.
