Superintendent's Message

Russ Bennett

Well, Cleveland’s favorite 4 letter winter word - SNOW- has entered into the weather picture way to soon!  I was hoping to not be on weather watch for a little while longer, but it hasn’t worked out that way so far.  I know children will soon be wearing their pajamas backwards to ensure snow days, but just for reference we have already posted the district delayed start information on our website.  Sorry about that kids. But if this November’s weather is any indication, I will undoubtedly need to call a snow day or two.

On the positive side of this wintry weather comes the anticipation of the upcoming holiday season.  Believe it or not, the holidays are just around the corner   I can hear our Craddock School student’s singing voices as they practice for their concerts already.  Thank you to all of our parents and families who support their children.  By supporting and participating in concerts, parties, giving projects and holiday events, you are making memories and setting such a positive example for your children to follow.

I am also looking forward to all of the joys that I see around our district during the holidays.  Each of our buildings hosts giving projects that help those in need throughout our area.  Please check our building webpages and newsletters for more information regarding each building’s specific holiday projects.  Without fail, each year, the generosity of our school family and community members amazes me and my staff members.  It is a tribute to our school district and city to have so many philanthropic minded people spearhead, organize, and contribute to our giving projects.  I want to extend a sincere “thank you” to all who support these amazing endeavors. 

I want to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and hope that you truly enjoy the time spent with family and friends.  Cherish each moment!
