Welcome Back to the 2023-2024 School Year

Maple Heights Families, 

Welcome back to another exciting school year! I hope that all of our families were able to have a restful and enjoyable summer break. 

Whether you are a returning student or a new student to our District, I want you to know that you are an essential part of our school community. Each of you brings unique talents, perspectives, and dreams that contribute to the vibrant tapestry of our District.

As the Superintendent, I want our students to feel safe, supported, and encouraged to take risks. We believe in your potential and are here to guide you as you explore new subjects, develop new skills, and uncover your passions. Our dedicated and passionate staff is ready to inspire and guide you on your educational journey. 

The educational journey is not just about academics; it is about discovering who you are, developing social and emotional skills, and building lifelong friendships. Our goal is to create a caring and inclusive community where all students feel valued and respected. 

I want to extend a warm welcome to our parents and guardians. Your partnership is crucial in ensuring your student’s success. As we begin this new school year together, I would like for our community to embrace the challenges that become opportunities, mistakes that become lessons, and hard work that leads to success. Let us work together to create an environment full of kindness, empathy, and understanding. 

Here is to the new school year full of growth, discovery, and endless opportunities.
