Westerville Schools: Final days of USO Fundraiser!
After today (11/13/18), only five school days remain in the Westerville City School District's fundraiser supporting our local United Service Organization (USO). The USO connects veterans, active service members, and their families with local programs and services that provide empowerment, mental health treatment, and therapy/counseling.
Staff and students have a chance to win some great prizes for as little as a $1 donation, including FOUR TICKETS to the Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals football game on December 23 in Cleveland! Other prizes include four tickets to a Columbus Blue Jackets game, a Blue Jackets jersey autographed by Cam Atkinson, four tickets to COSI and restaurant gift card, and four tickets to The Columbus Zoo and restaurant gift card. Each $1 contribution gets the donor one entry into this district-wide raffle, so if you make a $5 donation, you receive five raffle entries! Prize winners will selected through a random drawing process when school resumes after Thanksgiving break.
Help our district continue its proud tradition of honoring our nation’s veterans and supporting worthwhile causes through fundraising activities such as this. The last day to support the USO and make a donation at your school is November 20, 2018. Good luck, and thank you in advance for your support of this important cause!
Staff and students are eligible to make donations at their school; prize winners will selected through a random drawing process. Winners will be selected when school resumes after Thanksgiving break.
Westerville City Schools Facilities Plan Conversations Scheduled
Times Change: Modern, Safer Spaces
On Behalf of the Westerville City Schools Board of Education...Feedback provided by the community during strategic planning and last year’s facilities conversation has generated some exciting possibilities for Westerville City Schools. The Board of Education wants to learn what families, students and the community think about components of the resulting facilities plan. The plan includes new facility and instructional program opportunities, as well as financial considerations.
The proposed plan recommends a new elementary and new middle school in the southern portion of the district. It also includes modernizing instructional spaces at Annehurst, Emerson, Hawthorne and Whittier elementary schools. As you participate, please keep in mind the following:
- Every school in the district will receive safety and security upgrades from this plan.
- This plan would allow us to maintain magnet programs at Emerson and Hanby.
- Opening a new elementary school would ease overcrowding and allow for expansion of All Day Kindergarten.
- The addition of an elementary school in the southern end of the district would increase the district’s operating budget.
- Opening a new middle school in the southern end of the district would ease overcrowding and allow Blendon Middle School to be used as temporary “swing space” where students would attend while their school was being renovated.
- Blendon Middle School later could be repurposed and house unique instructional program opportunities.
- Elementary and middle school attendance boundaries would be adjusted so more students can attend schools closer to their home.
Please join us at one of the following community meetings to lend your voice to the conversation.
November 1, 7:00 p.m. Hawthorne Elementary School (5001 Far View Road, Columbus, OH 43231)
