What’s Inside? Huskie Pride!
Members of the Cardinal Local School District:
The district would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU! to the community for the support and passage of the May levy. Our Board of Education, staff, and students worked worked hard to share our story so that a clear picture of the value of Cardinal Local Schools is realized. The district renewed it’s clear focus on returning Cardinal Local Schools to the highest levels of excellence for the benefit of our students. This focus, paired with a renewed excitement about some of the positive changes district-wide, should make for another exciting year. We will continue to provide the necessary upgrades for our technology infrastructure, we will continue to utilize our website as means to communicate our accomplishments, and we will maintain our commitment to provide our students with the necessary tools that are required for success in the 21st century.
Students and teachers in the Cardinal Local School District will be working to strengthen the Ohio Improvement Process in which we have collaborative teams working to provide best practice in curriculum, instruction, and assessment for all students.
We are entering our third year in recognizing distinguished alumni for their contributions in athletics and in life. We also welcome alumni and continue to provide an open invitation to join our Alumni Association so that we can share all of the good news that is happening in the district.
The mission of the Cardinal School Community is to provide an engaging, motivating, and safe environment for the development of all students to be successful, productive, life-long learners and responsible members of society. As I reflect on the words in this statement I focus on the following: engaging, motivating, safe, all students, life-long learners, and responsible. As I read these words I look to educational guru Michael Fullan who states that schools have an overarching moral purpose which is “to sustain success for all students so that failure is not an option.” In fact, I believe that our community as a whole has a moral purpose to make certain that failure is not an option. As a school community we have to focus on designing and delivering engaging work, motivating all students by strengthening our relationships with them, instilling the desire for continued learning throughout their lives, and teaching and modeling what responsible behavior looks like so that students are ready to thrive in the world they will inherit.
