LAST WEEK IN YOUR SCHOOL BOARD

On February 16th I had the honor of introducing myself to the members of the North Royalton Middle School PTA at their monthly meeting. It was nice hearing about all the great work they are doing for our students and staff. A few of the parents raised some very good questions to me and I hope through the district’s strategic planning process that those issues can be addressed. I have now officially visited every PTA in the District and have really learned a lot from attending these meetings.

LAST WEEK IN YOUR SCHOOL BOARD

Wellness Committee Meeting
On, Jan. 25th I attended my first Wellness Committee Meeting. We reviewed our current wellness programs and talked about several possible changes that are happening or being proposed in various buildings as well as the district. The committee is also in the process of developing the district’s wellness mission statement and posting the district’s wellness policy and building wellness goals on our district website. The district is currently looking to partner with the City of North Royalton for a combined wellness program that would be hosted at NRHS that would be for the entire community. The district recently received a $2,000.00 grant from the Ohio Department of Education to hold an evening parent health and wellness academy. Next Wellness Committee meeting will be held on March 10th at 2pm at the Board of Education Office Conference Rm.

Board discussed various plans for the up coming spring sports season and the efforts by the city’s various recreation clubs to prepare for it.
