Superintendent Search - Community Input Meeting
Dear Community Member,
The Bowling Green City Schools Board of Education has contracted with the Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA) to assist us with our search for a new superintendent. In our effort to make the best possible selection, we have included in the search process a time for our consultant, Cheryl Ryan, to meet with staff, students and the community in a series of information gathering sessions intended to help develop a profile for our next school leader, informed by common themes that emerge. Information from these meetings will be very helpful during the candidate screening and interview phase as the Board of Education searches for the perfect fit.
The conversations will take place during several sessions on February 4th and 5th – each designated for a different audience – and will focus on three areas:
(1) Major issues facing the district for the next three to five years;
(2) Performance expectations for the next superintendent; and
(3) Personal and professional qualities to be sought in the next superintendent.
You are a valued participant and stakeholder in our school district and community. Your participation in this process is important to us. Please consider attending a meeting for Community Members on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. The session will last no longer than 45-60 minutes and will be held at the Performing Arts Center, 540 West Poe Road.
On behalf of the entire Board of Education, thank you in advance for your willingness to participate and for your dedication to the students in Bowling Green School District.
If you have questions, please call Linda Allen at 419-352-3576, extension 4002.
President, Board of Education
A letter to the Bowling Green community from the BG Dear Santa Society...
Christmas 2014 has come and gone, but the memories will last forever. Through your generosity, 32 families consisting of 82 children received toys, clothing, coats, hams, fruit and toiletries. Parents welcomed relief knowing that their children would experience the spirit of Christmas. Your contribution, along with donations from the Bowling Green High School DECA Harvest for Hunger Drive, First Insurance Group, Newlove Realty, Valencia Shoes, Buick GMC and Bobel Builders enabled Dear Santa to provide assistance which went beyond the usual toy lists.
A very special thank you to Bowling Green City School staff members who donated not only money, but time to shop, stuff envelopes, gather toiletries, wrap and deliver gifts to our children. For the fourth consecutive year Bowling Green Meijer generously supported the Dear Santa Society by donating gift cards which allowed our volunteers to shop for our families. Thank you to BGFFA members for providing 32 bushels of fresh fruit as a special treat and for generously sponsoring one of our families. We appreciate the continued support from Chapter AA PEO, BGEA and Bowling Green OAPSE. Thank you to St. Mark's Lutheran Church for donating the November Noisy Offering to support our families. Thank you and welcome to Bowling Green Kiwanis for joining Dear Santa and supporting our efforts this year. Once again, our favorite ladies from Project Linus donated many beautiful handmade blankets which will keep our children warm.
Each year is filled with special moments and this year is no exception. A little girl fell in love with the violin and all she wanted for Christmas was a violin to call her own. A worried mom tried to redirect her daughter's wish to something more practical, but the little girl confidently asserted that Santa would not only bring her a violin, but a case to take good care of it as well. As it all turns out, she was right and Santa, Dallas Black, provided a beginner violin with 25 lessons for this future musician. Sadly, one mother told her children there was no Santa. She hoped to soften the reality of a barren Christmas tree on Christmas morning. Fortunately, she was wrong and Santa not only provided gifts for the children but updated her rent and utility bills to keep the family in their home. He also left a special gift of "The Polar Express" and a sleigh bell to remind her that Santa is alive and well in Bowling Green, Ohio. For these families and all of the Dear Santa families, Santa is real and working through all of you.
We hope you continue to realize how much your contributions mean to so many. On behalf of our Dear Santa families, thank you so very much.
Dee Szalejko and Cindy Maas
