Adam Fineske –

The 2018-2019 school year has begun … and we are excited to show our community just HOW…#SylvaniaWorks.

The 2018-2019 school year in Sylvania has started off strong as we welcomed one of the largest number of students to our 12 school buildings in many years. Sylvania is a thriving community, built on a foundation of leaders, community support, and strong families, and we in Sylvania Schools are fortunate and thankful to be able to thrive in a community that values education. Our recent growth reflects the change in our community and the world, with growing diversity, a surge of new technology, and the implementation of innovative curriculum resources in all of our classrooms. Over 500 Sylvania teachers and 300 support staff dedicate themselves to our children to help each one achieve at the highest level possible. As I have been out and about in our buildings these first two weeks of school, I see and hear so many amazing examples of this dedication. Sylvania is a school district that truly works!

Our theme for the district this year is “#SylvaniaWorks”. Building upon our focus last year of starting with the WHY of our mission and vision, we are now turning our focus to the HOW. We are doing this by looking at our strategies and core values that drive us and encourage us to discover, celebrate, and challenge us to think about just HOW . . . #SylvaniaWorks throughout the school year! Our focus on HOW will center on three big picture district goals this year. We will work to increase the academic achievement of all students, strengthen the safety, security and mental health support throughout the district and continue to build our future through increased collaborative leadership and development as our district grows and changes.

We invite you, as the Sylvania community, to join with us and see just HOW we will be working to implement our goals this year. Get involved, come out to our athletic events, and be a part of our school district–your school district–in any way that works for you. You are always welcome. We are all part of what makes Sylvania an amazing community and what truly proves that . . . #SylvaniaWorks!
