 Hello Mt. Healthy Owls!

Welcome back to a new school year. I hope you had a relaxing summer, and you are ready to be successful students! Parents, this is an exciting year as we prepare to begin implementation of our strategic plan. The theme is “Mt. Healthy an Education Destination”. You can read more about it in our school calendar which each family will be receiving. The purpose of this plan is to continuously improve our teaching and student’s learning.

I want to share with you a few changes in our administrative staff. Mark Walden will be the principal at South Elementary School. Lisa Pugh will be his Assistant Principal, a position held last year by Jana Wolfe who is now a coordinator in our Teaching and Learning Department. Thomas Maxwell is the Dean at South. North has the same administrative staff, Felicia Dorsey is the principal, Kendra Schappacher is the assistant principal, and Michael Lindsey is the Dean.

At the Jr./Sr. High School, Milton Folson is the head principal, Cash Hayden is the Associate Principal, the Assistant Principals are Elizabeth Lucas and Matt Morris. Joe Sumpter is joined by Arvie Crouch as the Deans.

Our commitment to consistency in our two major programs in the District continues with FIP (Formative Instructional Practices) and Safe and Civil our positive behavior program. Some changes for this year are that the Jr. High will start school at the same time as the High School and they will have a class period to offer academic and behavioral interventions as well as enrichment opportunities to all students.

With all of us working together, we will make this district a destination point for students.  This will be a place where students will know they are loved, and where they will be prepared and educated for their future.  I look forward to your support of these efforts.

I look forward to meeting many of you in the coming months!

I am Mt. Healthy.

You are Mt. Healthy.

We are Mt. Healthy!

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for entrusting me with your most valuable asset: your child.  I am excited and honored to serve as the Superintendent of the Mt. Healthy School District.  I take seriously the opportunity to work with you in charting the destiny of the students of Mt. Healthy.

I believe I have the necessary background to achieve these goals.  I would like to share a little about myself.  I was born and raised in Lynchburg, Virginia.  I attended the University of Virginia as an undergraduate, where I met and married my husband, James.  I received my Masters from Wright State University, and my doctorate from the University of Dayton.  I have worked in urban and suburban school districts in the Dayton area.  I have also taught at Wilmington College.  My last position was as the High School Principal at Wayne High School in Huber Heights, Ohio.  But when I drove into Mt. Healthy, it reminded me of home.

This is our story starting today, and I believe by working together with the same goal in mind, our students can and will be successful.  I am excited to be on this journey with all of you.

My plan is to meet as many of you as possible to get to know your hopes and dreams you have for your children.  As a parent of two young adults, I understand the importance of my new position.  I know it will take all of us, working together, to raise the academic and social achievement of our students.

I have come to realize that many people in Mt. Healthy are unaware of all of the great things that happen on a daily basis in our schools.  I have challenged myself to share with you the good news from our schools, and to work to improve those things that need to be changed to enhance the success of all students.

This will be accomplished by effectively communicating with you, listening to your concerns, and asking you to help me make the necessary changes.  We will help our students set goals for their lives in order to help them understand that school is important to their success.  I believe with obtainable goals, great teachers, and a supportive community, the students will become the productive citizens that we want them to be to improve our society.

With all of us working together, we will make this district a destination point for students.  This will be a place where students will know they are loved, and where they will be prepared and educated for their future.  I look forward to your support of these efforts.

Sincerely,

 

 Reva Cosby
