During Governor DeWine’s press conference late last week he reminded everyone that April is Military Child Month. It’s a time to recognize children with a military connection. The Governor said we have more than 30,000 military children in the state.
Hilliard Davidson Senior Ian Maple was asked what it means to him to be a military child. His video was featured during the Governor’s press conference. We hope you enjoy this short video and please take time this month to join us in paying tribute to their daily sacrifice.
We would like you to take a few minutes to watch today’s update with Superintendent John Marschhausen. Today he talks about our plans to continue eLearning for the rest of this school year and how we are already preparing for the 2020/2021 school year.
Also, tonight at 8:20 pm, or 2020 in military time, we will join schools across Ohio and turn the lights on in our high school stadiums for 20 minutes to honor our seniors and show respect for all the traditions they are missing this year. Please note that our high school stadiums are closed.
We are #InThisTogetherOhio
During this time of eLearning, we are reminded even more than ever that partnerships with our families are the key to preparing our students to be Ready for Tomorrow. Our district’s goal is to work with parents to create educational opportunities for students in the home.
These partnerships aren’t formed overnight, just because we have turned to eLearning. They have grown through the years from events like the one featured in this video. We all look forward to the times ahead when we can come back together and share more opportunities together. Until then, enjoy this memory and stay healthy.
