Something Good is Happening in Our Schools

As part of its mission, the Greater Cleveland School Superintendents' Association features the accomplishments of a member's school district in its monthly newsletter under the heading, "Something Good Is Happening In Our Schools". This short article of approximately three hundred words highlights recent accomplishments of the school district and is shared with 273 school districts throughout the state.

Past Issues



Nancy Santilli, Superintendent,
Kenston Local Schools

At Kenston, we develop engaged and inspired students who are prepared to reach their potential beyond our campus.  We inspire excellence through our goals of Student Achievement, Citizenship, Health and Wellness, Innovation and Communication/Connections.

I am proud to highlight two of our programs that make connections with our community for our students and residents.  With a strong focus on preparing our students for college and career, we have redefined our Business Advisory structure creating Kenston, Inc.  Comprised of the Alumni Association, Educational Foundation, Board of Education Citizens Advisory Committee and Business Partnerships, this steering committee has the common goal of connecting students with partners and resources to real-world learning experiences.  By pooling the talents and resources of our educators, community members and business leaders, we can leverage opportunities for our students.  The combined resources of these organizations provide student support in areas of curriculum enhancement, career advice and mentoring, internships, course projects and guest lectures.

A challenge for every school is to retain the connection with residents who no longer have children attending their schools.  Like many schools, Kenston has a Senior Gold Card allowing residents over the age of 60 to attend school athletic contests, concerts and drama events at no cost.  Using contact information gathered from Gold Card holders, we began S’MOREs or Senior Moments of Rockin’ Entertainment.  Now Senior Citizens are actively invited to attend a series of “special” concerts, plays or performances.  These free events often have an exclusive reception that allows students and Senior Citizens to interact before or after an activity.  A Dinner/Theatre event, in conjunction with our Spring Musical, has become the social event of the season for many of our older residents.  This event is hosted by the high school’s Principal Leadership Council with middle school choir members greeting guests as they arrive providing a steady arm or umbrella as needed.  National Honor Society members, athletes and Dance team members serve meals to over 350 residents. The district uses donated resources to fund these programs.

S’MOREs has become invaluable, providing connections with our residents and schools.  A resident shared this thought with me. “The S’MORE program has reintroduced me to the Kenston Schools and the children of my community. Once I receive my “Save the Date” card, I am excited to mark the events on my calendar.  I look forward to connecting with friends and neighbors while being amazed by the talent and compassion of Kenston’s students. These events inspire me when I see the opportunities and potential of the children in Auburn and Bainbridge Townships. It makes me proud to live in the district.”
