Chloe Rennels Experiences Role of Principal First Hand

Chloe Rennels and Katie KowzaIt's not every day that a student has the opportunity to assume the role of their principal! But that's exactly what happened on December 4 when Sharon Elementary 1st grader Chloe Rennels took the lead at her school.

“Principal for A Day” was one of the many items auctioned off during the 15th Annual Highland Foundation Dinner held on November 2. Each elementary school participates in the auction and allows the students an up close look at what it's like to serve as a principal. Chloe had several responsibilities to take care of throughout the day including morning announcements, visiting classrooms, assisting in the holiday shop, serving as a guest reader, inspecting and touring the building, and of course eating lunch with the principal. Chloe, pictured with Sharon Principal Mrs. Katie Kowza, is the daughter of Matthew and Jill Rennels of Sharon Township.

Holiday Hat Day is 12/17

On Tuesday, December 17, Highland Schools will hold a district wide fundraiser for the United Way of Medina County. The annual ”Holiday Hat Day” allows any student, teacher, bus driver, custodian, aide, secretary, etc. to donate $1 to wear his/her favorite holiday headgear (Santa hats, elf hats, scrooge hats, antlers and the like). Money will be collected at each building. The goal of the United Way of Medina County is to ensure that area children get a strong start in school, young adults have access to mental health services, and children do not go hungry. 

Since 2014 the United Way has:

  • Helped 7,000 students focus on learning by providing kindergarten readiness programs, academic support, and nutritional food.
  • Helped 17,000 youth by providing mental health access in schools. 

All proceeds collected from the Holiday Hat Day will benefit the United Way. Thank you!
