Welcome back to the 2014-15 school year!
The 2014-15 school year is just around the corner. School officially begins for students on Tuesday, September 2nd. Fall sports are already in full swing and our home opener in football against Portland is on August 28th! The Middle School and High School Open Houses will take place on Tuesday, August 26th from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. and the Elementary Open Houses will take place on Wednesday, August 27th from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Whether you are new to the community or have been a Marauder for life, I want to officially welcome you back to the new school year. It has been a busy summer (albeit it a bit shorter this year) but we are ready and anxious to get school started. With construction work and the welcoming of new faces, it is certainly an exciting time to be a Marauder!
It is hard to believe that I am beginning my 15th year here at Ovid-Elsie and my 5th year as Superintendent! Over the years I have seen Ovid-Elsie Area Schools become one of the absolute best districts in the area. Our mission at Ovid-Elsie Area Schools is to create a caring educational community that prepares all students for a global society. I truly believe that we do this on a day-to-day basis and feel confident that we meet the changing needs and interests of our school community. We boast high student achievement, competitive athletics and progressive educational programming. We have demonstrated a commitment to the community and established global classrooms in an effort to have a greater impact on our students.
With the sad loss of employees comes the exciting opportunity to welcome new personnel. We would like to welcome Dan Davenport, Jared Hyzer, Jennifer Gavenda, Sarah Martin, Sara Smith, Toni Thompson, and Stacy White to our schools. These individuals will make outstanding contributions to our schools and leave their legacy just as so many before them have done. We are grateful to each and every one of our employees.
As always, we welcome your thoughts and invite you to be a part of our very special school. Have a great school year and we will see you on September 2nd!
Dr. Ryan L. Cunningham, Superintendent
