An Open Letter to the Friends of Circleville City School Foundation:
It is with great pleasure I become the chair of Circleville City School Foundation! Why? I believe in Circleville City Schools, and I believe in education. Many of you can say the same. As a graduate of Circleville High School Class of 1973, I stayed involved in school activities as my own children entered and exited Circleville Schools. My love of the community and school is as strong as ever as I take this position.
“Enriching educational opportunities” for all students is the core principle of what we do as a Foundation. The seventeen members of the CCSF board look for ways to support the educational goals of the school district. We look for innovative and creative projects and activities, those not funded by other sources. We are proud to say we are a working board. Over this past year, more mini-grants and educational grants and projects have been funded than at any other time in the history of the Foundation. This is directly tied to the funding provided by donated dollars. To put it in another way, we could not do anything without YOU!
Consider these examples. Fifth graders like Kylie are now using Chrome Books daily to enrich the curriculum. At the middle school, students in Mrs. Powers’ classroom use adaptive furniture to enhance their learning. Circleville High School engineering students are launching hot air balloons and continue to participate successfully in robotics competitions. This is just a taste of what is happening across the district as Circleville students walk into stimulating, exciting classrooms where powerful learning happens!
Students, past and present, are eligible for many scholarships to enrich learning. CCSF supports scholarships at every level of learning. They are detailed elsewhere on this website.
Thank you to the administration and staff who work well with the Foundation for the benefit of the students! Thank you to our donors who make all the above possible. Let us keep working to maximize learning and support for the staff and students of Circleville City Schools.
