Dedicated to Excellence in Education
Dear CCS Community,
Welcome back from Spring Break! I hope your time off was restful and your return to school this week was met with positive energy to finish strong - just five more weeks to wrap up the school year!
With that said, I am asking for your help in making attendance a priority. How we end the school year is just as important as how we start it.
Beginning next week, we are launching a fun, positive campaign to celebrate daily school attendance -- one I’m certain our students can relate to.
Students will be eligible for weekly prizes and incentives including free tickets to Columbus Clippers games and free food coupons from Donatos, Tim Hortons, and White Castle.
So let’s do this -- we’re almost there. Let’s finish strong and show the world how CCS students are Leading The Way!
Recognizing Our Outstanding Teachers and Staff
In the coming weeks, we will be celebrating many individuals in our school community, each of whom play a crucial role in our students reaching their full potential and achieving academic success.
I’d like to take a moment to acknowledge several special days, honoring our dedicated and hard-working teachers and staff, and offer my sincere gratitude for their contributions to our schools and our students:
Please join me in thanking our everyday heroes for all they do to equip our students with the tools they need to ‘Lead The Way.’
I encourage our families and community members to reach out to a teacher, principal, or staff member who has made a difference in the lives of your children. Tell them how much you care and appreciate the work they do in Columbus City Schools.
