Superintendent John Marschhausen announced two changes in the Davidson High School leadership team this morning. After this school year, Davidson Principal John Bandow will be moving over to central office. Dr. Marschhausen has appointed him to take over as Director of Secondary Education. Mr. Bandow has been a part of Davidson High School since before students walked the halls. He started as an assistant principal and has now served for almost two decades as the principal. “It is with trepidation and excitement I take this step and leave my Davidson Family,” Bandow said. “I look forward to working with the entire Hilliard district as I move forward with my new position.” Read More
Several Heritage Middle School students participated in a voluntary book club during lunch. Media Specialist Joy Miller ran the club for anyone interested. The students read the book, The Dirt Diary. After reading and discussing the material, the students were able to Skype with the author, Anna Staniszewski. Giving students the opportunity to pursue a passion for reading, outside of class time, prepares them to be Ready for Tomorrow.
The third grade class at Scioto Darby has been hard at work researching historical figures. The students were given the assignment of doing biographies on famous people that have made some sort of impact on the world. But in Ms. Gorby’s class they took it a step further. The students assumed the identities of these historical figures and acted as them during a wax museum exhibit. Both students and parents were invited in to learn more about our past from these ‘real life’ celebrities. The students were able to put a little of their own personality into these famous renditions.
Hilliard City Schools is very proud of the online program that we have developed over the past ten years. The district has been proactive in seeing the need for alternative educational methods and has worked to develop more than 60 of our own online courses. These courses are developed and administered by Hilliard City Schools teachers and provide the district with an abundance of opportunities to personalize education to meet the needs of each and every one of our learners.
