The Week in Review - March 26, 2021

Farewell and Thank You

As you know, my official retirement date is later this year. However, my tenure as your Superintendent will end April 1st, as your new Superintendent Kyle Kallhoff joins CCS.


This will be my final newsletter and I wanted to use it to thank you for all of your hard work and dedication during the six years I served as your Superintendent. It was your commitment to the education of our students that made my time with Cullman City Schools a pleasure and a success.


Thank you and best wishes for a wonderful conclusion of the 2020 -2021 school year and many successful years ahead. Go Bearcats!

CHS Inducts NHS Members

We are so pleased to have held the CHS National Honor Society Induction last weekend! Last year we were fortunate enough to have it the week before the COVID -19 shut down. This year, our sponsors were determined to hold an in-person induction even if it meant social distancing and masks. These students deserve a ceremony to recognize their hard work and commitment to making good grades, making good choices, and serving others. Thank you to everyone who supported this annual event.

Cullman City Schools Benefit from Operation Round Up

Through a giving program known as Operation Round Up, members of Cullman Electric Cooperative and customers of Cullman Power Board have donated more than $5 million to educational projects – and they’ve done it a few pennies at a time. ~ Cullman Electric Coop webpage


Those pennies have made a positive impact on Cullman City Schools. Our teachers, students and schools have benefitted tremendously from this program and we want to thank everyone for the contributions that make this program a success!

Ms. Britton, WES, is a recent beneficiary of the Operation Round Up program. They funded an additional monitor for her so that she could have dual screen capability.
