This past Friday, September 28th, Circleville Elementary School held its second ‘Career Connection Friday’ series centered around post-graduation pathways and the ideals of ‘determination, desire, and drive’.

The event kicked off at student arrival as our Elementary Tigers were welcomed in to school by our high school student-athletes and the Circleville High School Marching Band playing an array of pep rally tunes. Student-athletes would then visit each classroom and discuss what their future career plans were after graduation and then would read a book to each classroom.
From there, classes headed south to the Circleville High School auditorium for an assembly with motivational speaker, singer, songwriter David Wells. David expanded on the themes of determination, desire, and drive through innovative means weaving in his talent for playing the trumpet and flugel horn with motivational videos.
The event was capped off at 1:30 p.m. with a pep rally in the Savings Bank Stadium where all 1,150 Circleville Elementary School students packed the new home stands for a pep rally surrounding college and career readiness. Classes displayed collegiate pennants, signs, and banners as students were again welcomed by the band and would hear from a variety of CCS administrators on what pathway led them to a career in education.

Circleville Elementary Preschool receives 5-star Step Up to Quality Rating

Circleville City Schools – Effective November 12th, 2017 and running through November 11th of 2020, the State of Ohio has awarded the Circleville Elementary Preschool a 5-star Step Up to Quality rating for meeting quality standards established by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) and the Ohio Department of Education (ODE).

Step Up to Quality is a Five-star tiered quality rating and improvement system created to recognize and promote early learning and development programs that meet quality standards over time and that are continuously above the health and safety licensing requirements set forth by the state.

“It takes a strong staff to carry out a quality program with the demands of schools today,” said preschool director and Circleville Elementary School assistant principal Jill Sims. “We are a community here [in Circleville] and we are raising a community of Tigers and a program such as this is one I want my own child to be involved in. I think we offer a lot of quality programs here in the county, but I am really proud of the community feel we have here on campus as evidenced by this rating.”

The program is currently in its fourth year of operation at the new Circleville Elementary School site on Tiger Drive with 86 student enrollments as of November 1st, 2017.
