From the Superintendent's Desk

As we conclude the school year at Ravenna Public Schools, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of the people who have made this school year so successful and meaningful for our students. The Community of Ravenna has been incredibly supportive of the school and supportive of the activities program at the school. Over the course of the year, I have been very impressed with the parents’ support and encouragement of their students. Whether it is while they are supporting the activities program, attending parent teachers conferences, or attending fine arts events, they are always positive and supportive. Our teachers and support staff have kept things flowing smoothly and consistently deliver high quality instruction, transportation, meals, and care for all of the students. Last, but certainly not least, I’d like to thank the staff of The Ravenna News. They provide outstanding coverage of the students’ activities and school events, generously allow us to publish this newsletter each month, and they continuously strive to provide accurate reporting of our board meetings and the business operations of the school. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to making this school year such a success!

As we all know, this school year has been anything but normal. The situation we found ourselves in when we returned to school in August was anything but predictable or routine. Through communication and cooperation, parents, teachers, students, school boards and administrators had an incredibly positive and successful school year. A special thank you to the parents and the students for their cooperation and understanding throughout the year.

We are all hoping and praying for a regular 2021-22 School Year and a return to normal activities at the school. We look forward to the day when we can return to “learning as usual.” During the summer months, please remain safe and healthy. We appreciate your support, cooperation, and understanding through this tumultuous school year. Please have a safe and happy summer!
