• Happy New Year to our Leetonia Bears families! I hope that all of you had a
    relaxing and enjoyable Holiday Season. Life gets busy for all of us---young people
    and adults alike---so hitting the reset button to break up our daily routines is a good
    thing for our minds, our bodies and our spirits. It also means that our students,
    teachers, administrators and staff can return recharged and ready to continue our
    efforts to engage all students in the second half of the 22/23 school year.
    I am very proud of the progress our school system is making and invite you to join
    us in realizing our mission. “The mission of Leetonia Exempted Village School
    District is to provide a superior education, enabling all students to become
    productive and dedicated citizens in our community and society.”
    The Leetonia Community has a very rich tradition of supporting Leetonia Schools
    students, staff and programs. The continued support will produce a stronger school
    system that will make us proud. It is imperative that we work together to build
    strong relationships and support systems in order for our children to achieve at the
    highest levels possible. I often talk about expectations, raising expectations to
    create a culture of respect and belief for our students, staff and the entire school
    community. I am confident, that working together we can accomplish the goal to
    provide the best possible education for each student.
    The culture at Leetonia Schools was not created by somebody else, it is created by
    all of us! Every one of us play a critical role in creating a culture of respect and
    belief every single day. As we enter into the New Year, my New Year’s resolution
    and ultimate hope is to create an environment of mutual respect, dignity and belief
    in one another as we work together to make Leetonia School’s a great place to be.
    Best Wishes for a healthy and safe 2023!
