Superintendent’s Corner

It’s unbelievable to me that March is here already. That means that our schools are getting ready for state testing, spring sports, spring break and many other activities. Here are two items that may interest you.

Meet the new board members: The Nordonia Hills Board of Education will hold a special meeting on Thursday, March 24, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Northfield Elementary School. At this meeting, I will present our annual State of the Schools address. In addition, the board will allow time for community members to ask questions and give feedback on any matters related to the schools. We hope to see you there!

Kindergarten registration now open: If you have a child turning 5 years old on or before Aug.1, please consider enrolling them for kindergarten as soon as possible. When parents enroll their kids early, we are able to adjust our staffing accordingly. Parents who wait to register their children until summer may have their children placed in a different building. 

Please note, this year we have implemented an April 30 deadline to register for all-day kindergarten. Children not enrolled in kindergarten by April 30 will only have the part-time option. This is to assist us in planning our staffing appropriately.

To help make the registration process as easy as possible, we have compiled a packet of printable materials located at These items can also be picked up in the lobby of the board of education office or at the Nordonia Hills Branch Library. Please complete the packet prior to registering and present all forms and documents required by the board of education to the registrar in order for your child to be enrolled into the Nordonia Hills City School District. 

To schedule an individual appointment, please call Maria at 330-467-0580.

As always, thanks for supporting the Nordonia Schools, have a great month and remember to follow me on Twitter @JoeSuperintend1. ∞
