Something Good is Happening in Our Schools

As part of its mission, the Greater Cleveland School Superintendents' Association features the accomplishments of a member's school district in its monthly newsletter under the heading, "Something Good Is Happening In Our Schools". This short article of approximately three hundred words highlights recent accomplishments of the school district and is shared with 273 school districts throughout the state.

Past Issues


By: Dr. Christina Dinklocker Superintendent, Mogadore Local Schools

It started as an annual Art Fair, grew into a Music/Art Festival then evolved into the annual Mogadore Community Fair! Through a collaborative committee of staff members, parents, students and community representatives, the Fair has become the April “go to” place as we welcome spring together. Guests view an art exhibit of work produced by each child in the district, listen to continuous music performed by our student groups, purchase books in the school library book sale, visit booths staffed by community organizations, agencies, vendors and crafters. Basket raffles and food concessions are facilitated by student and staff volunteers.

Much of the Community Fair concept has emerged from the monthly Superintendent’s Community Leaders’ Breakfast participants who work together to create collaborative opportunities for the schools and community. The breakfast group consists of local clergy, school principals, Village Council members, heads of school and community organizations, retail and corporate leaders, representatives of the local service clubs and student ambassadors. Each individual provides news, needs and resources and we come out of each meeting with energy, ideas and momentum of benefit to the school system and community. The monthly breakfast has been referred to as the “best meeting in town”!

The Community Fair has become a part of a year-long cycle of community celebrations that are most often connected to the school system. Our Alumni Association hosts a Fall Craft Fair in the schools followed by a community-wide Christmas in the Village created by the local library, Rotary Club, Village, area corporations and our school system. After the winter break, we begin work on the Spring Community Fair followed by a summer community-wide village parade and festival. Our staff and students take a lead in each event with our Mogadore Village volunteer committees. Our newest project “in the works” is a community-wide Back to School Celebration in August that is being created by one of our lead teachers. Most importantly, new relationships are developed and strengthened as we all work, learn and play together resulting in all good things for the schools and community…and yes, it does take a Village!
