Dear Students & Parents,
As we enter the last month of summer vacation, fall athletes and marching band members begin the preparation for the upcoming fall season. I hope all of our students are enjoying their time off from school in the hopes that, in a little more than one month, they will be ready to begin another beneficial school year.
The first day of school for all students this year is Tuesday, Aug. 30. The school day, as it has been in years past, will begin at 7:25 and conclude at 2:25. Student schedules will be mailed home in the coming weeks; if a student and/or parent would like to discuss the schedule with a counselor, that can be accomplished on Thursday, Aug.18(for juniors & seniors), and Friday, August 19(for sophomores & freshmen), in the High School Guidance Office. The Guidance Office will be open from 8 am - 2 pm both days. This information is included in the mailing of the schedules.
We have two additions to our faculty this school year. Mr. Suber has assumed the position of Principal at Streetsboro Middle School. While this is a great opportunity for Mr. Suber and we wish him the best, he left us with big shoes to fill. I feel confident that our new Assistant Principal, Mr. Aaron Newman, will do a tremendous job. He comes to us after serving as a teacher, Assistant Principal and, most recently, Principal of Maple Heights High School. Mr. Newman is a graduate of Stuebenville High School, Columbia University and Capital University Law School. He has a wealth of academic and life experience that will serve him well in his role here at SHS. Also, Miss Helen Hajdak has been hired to replace Mrs. Allison Denisco in our Math Department. Miss Hajdak has a Master's Degree in Math from the University of Akron and did her student teaching experience at Kent Roosevelt HS. She is a great addition to our Math Department and will serve our students very well.
Finally, the plan has always been to move to the new high school during December of this year (2016). As of this summer, we are on track to accomplish this. The new school is on (dare I say, ahead of?) schedule and we should be ready to move in this winter. It will be an exciting time for everyone, but there will also be a lot to accomplish. We will release details regarding this move, how it will affect staff and students, at the appropriate time.
Please continue to enjoy a safe and happy summer.
