2016-2017 Welcome Back Message

Welcome back to school!  We have eagerly awaited the arrival of our students back into our schools on August 23.  It is an exciting time to be a Cavalier!

We want all of our students to know that we believe in you, we care about you, and we want you to be successful!  In fact, your success is our success.  If you fail or struggle then we have too, so it is our responsibility to help our students succeed even when they struggle.  If you are a parent of a child who is having difficulty please contact your child's teacher or principal during the early stages of the struggle so we can help.  I often tell people I cannot fix a problem if I do not know it is a problem.

One point of emphasis we are making in our schools this year is the idea of "Respect."  We want to encourage our students to Respect themselves, others, and their school.  We hope you will reinforce this message to them in your homes.

To keep up to date you are welcome and encouraged to follow me on Social Media including Twitter and Facebook.  I will also use other tools to communicate including the webpage, an automated calling system, and Remind 101.  Please let me know how I can help you or your children and also how we can continue to make our district better.  Let's have a great 16-17 school year!


The Chillicothe City School District empowers students to learn, to lead, and to serve.

Go Cavs!
