I'd like to welcome everyone back for the 2016-2017 school year! While the action never really stops at the high school and in central offices, the first Monday of August always serves as a pivotal date to start the school year. As you know, school officially starts for students Wednesday, August 17th, however, there are important dates leading up to the official start of school. Please check the school webpages for more detailed Jump Start information which begins August 9th in our elementary buildings and August 11th at the middle schools. At the high school, Freshmen Orientation, sponsored by Link Crew, is scheduled for August 12th.
Later that evening, the Athletic Boosters along with the Instrumental Music Boosters will be sponsoring our annual Meet the Tigers Night in Clifford Stadium!
As we begin the month of August and we embark upon the 2016-2017 school year, Cuyahoga Falls City SD is faced with several decisions. Some decisions will impact us short-term while others will set our course for many years to come. To help make those decisions, we would like to engage our community and stakeholders. Thus, I’d like to invite every interested party to a meeting entitled Building Our Future Together, August 24 @ 6:30 p.m. in the CFHS Little Theatre.
The meeting will begin with a brief overview of our strategic plan which could lead to small group conversations about: educational delivery, technology, communication, culture, finance, and/or building structures. We hope to meet regularly (2nd and 4th Wednesdays) until we reach consensus on our next steps. As your superintendent, it is my desire to guide you to a future that is best for the kids of this community, present and future. I am asking you to help define that which is best for kids and community.
I truly hope to see you on the 24th!
Then, we honor our alumni on the 26th of the month! Cuyahoga Falls City Schools Foundation/Alumni Association is sponsoring the All-Class Reunion in the CFHS cafeteria immediately prior to our home football game versus Kent Roosevelt! We hope you can join us!
We are excited for the new school year and are prepared for the challenges that lie ahead. What we know is that the community of Cuyahoga Falls will come together to take care of our kids, present and future!
