Love our Kids! Love our Staff! Love our Families!
I want to open this Week in Reflection with gratitude. The world in which we live in can feel disconnected, and torn at times. We can become very reactive to moments and situations each day we encounter. In a world of constant contact and pressure lives our kids who spend a third of their day with adults and peers. Our students are great, and our staff love working with your children. It is hard to reflect upon the passion, compassion, and time placed in class, and student activities...being at school from sun up to sun down allows me a comprehensive view of the lives of our students and the adults they work with. It is all about connections. It is all about trust, and it is all about generational community values and kindness.
It was awesome seeing our parents walking the halls this week during Meet the Teacher Night. It was fun to chat, and guide parents/guardians much like we do with directing students to classes. We all cherished the small moments that we had with families. Thank you for sharing your kids with us. Together, we are better. Together, we can transform today's learners into the leaders they are striving to be. This Week in Reflection is packed with tons of things our students encountered over Labor Day weekend along with preparing for the week to come.
Geauga County Fair
Earlier in the week, I asked students to share some of the awesome events, competitions, and experiences they participated in during the 200th Geauga County Fair. We have a ton of students involved in Fair Boards, 4H, and skill competitions. It was amazing walking around to see all of the great things our students participated in. Enclosed are some images that were shared with me. The recognition and awards they received were many! We are so proud of them!
We are preparing for Homecoming at Chardon High School. Over the last two months, the Executive Student Council met and worked to plan, present, order, and create itineraries for biggest week of the school year! Why is it so big? The entire week surrounds our core value of Community. The dance is very popular and has exceptional attendance every year, but it is the purpose that matters so much more. We are quite traditional when it comes to Homecoming. We have spirit week, day to day school prizes, assemblies, homecoming court, voting, king and queen along with all of the celebrations---but, we are also celebrating the countless alumni that come home, visit the building, have reunions, head to the game, and celebrate being home! The dance is the final event to an exceptional week! The Executive Student Council worked way behind the scenes! I have to give a huge shoutout to Senior Executive President: Sydney Murray, and Senior Executive VP of Media Communications: Faith Kilfoyle, who spent every one of their free periods calling, organizing, and being so detail oriented with making this event run smoothly. We are looking forward to a week of memories! Be sure to follow the direction below for purchasing tickets.
