    Columbus City Schools Kicks Off 2023-2024 School Year Pathway Express with OSU Women's Soccer against That Team Up North


    October 26, 2023 – Columbus City Schools students and families packed the Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium to watch the Ohio State University women’s soccer team play against the Michigan Wolverines. 


    This was the first stop on the Pathway Express for the 2023-2024 school year. 


    Along with enjoying the game, students were given booklets with engaging literacy activities that tied in with the soccer game. As they watched, students used the game as inspiration for these literacy lessons. 


    Students also had the chance to meet with Ohio State graduate and children’s book author, Monica Brown. Brown spoke with students about her book and autographed free copies for them to take home.


    Extended Learning Specialist Sarah Pubal said the event was an exciting way to kick off this year’s Pathway Express program. 


    “Pathway Express gives our students the opportunity to learn in new and creative ways,” Pubal explained. “We are so excited to continue growing on the momentum we established at the Ohio State women’s soccer game.”


    This event is part of Columbus City Schools’ commitment to offering students engaging learning opportunities outside of the traditional classroom learning environment. Stay tuned for more information about where the Pathway Express is heading next!
