The South Euclid Lyndhurst School District is excited to begin the 2022-2023 school year with great expectations, and a continued eye on academic and co-curricular success. Meeting the overall social and emotional needs of students will also be a focus as we promote a safe, secure and encouraging learning environment. The last two years has taught everyone in education that a continual dedication to affirming students to be the absolute best they can be, regardless of circumstances around them, must be a constant priority. To help ensure a successful school year, this article contains some of the nuances the community can expect from the South Euclid Lyndhurst Schools.

To help prepare students, and provide academic and co-curricular enrichment opportunities, the Arc Summer Learning Academy concluded its second year at the Greenview Intermediate and Middle School Campus.This summer learning fl ipped traditional summer school models, by offering supplemental academic programming to those interested in an engaging environment, taught primarily by South Euclid Lyndhurst Schools instructors. Students had the opportunity to learn in a classroom setting during the morning, participate in a transition block of time, and then enjoy some creative educational experiences in the afternoon. Summer Academy Principal Sylvia Marshall once again did a fantastic job of leading this summer initiative. The district fi rmly believes that extra educational opportunities provided will only serve to benefi t our youngest students. Congratulations to everyone involved.

The continued implementation of an engaging, and rigorous three-Year Curriculum and Instruction plan will help to maintain our positive push towards enriched academic achievement. The district is pleased to report that after its fi rst year of implementation, several instructional focuses have been accomplished. Some of those milestones include the selection of a new math core curriculum resource, designed to provide heightened levels of mathematics rigor. In addition, iReady an educational evaluation tool, that provides diagnostic assessment, has been implemented in grades Kindergarten through eighth for Language Arts and Mathematics. The SEL School System has created an honors and accelerated Mathematics pathway and placement procedure to continue encouraging our top learners. An ACT prep course, to help ensure greater success for test-taking, has been created at Memorial Junior High and Brush High School. To monitor and evaluate the components of this three-year plan, a Curriculum and Instruction Task Force has been created, comprised of administrators and educators to promote progress and ensure success. Looking ahead, these subjects, along with a continued focus on elementary literary skills, K-8 mathematics, American Government, and African American History curriculum, will be future focuses.

Finally, the community is excited to welcome some notable new faces in new places throughout our buildings. We formally welcome Michael Fording to the role of Principal at Charles F. Brush High School. Mr. Fording brings more than 20 years of experience in education and nearly a decade in building leadership. Larraine Fuller, who previously served the district as Assistant Principal at Brush, has become the Principal at Memorial Junior High School. Matthew Bryan, formerly at Memorial Junior High, has become the fourth grade principal at Greenview Intermediate School. Be sure to say hello to these individuals! The South Euclid Lyndhurst Schools is excited to begin anew for the 2022-2023 school year, and we thank the community for their enduring and compassionate support. All the best to everyone in our school family, and as always, GO ARCS!
