District Newsletter | February 26, 2023
February may be the shortest month of the year, but we sure did fit a lot into it. This month, our community celebrated Black History Month, the Lunar New Year, Valentine's Day, and Presidents' Day. We watched the Super Bowl and enjoyed Groundhog's Day predictions. At DCS, we started welcoming kindergarteners to the Class of 2036 and showered our School Resource Officers with appreciation for National School Resource Officer Day.
Even on the most average of days, there is no shortage of celebrating in our district. As part of our Better Together culture, we value, respect, and celebrate our students, staff, and community. Dublin City Schools is a wonderful collection of people with different backgrounds and experiences. We have tremendous students, amazing staff, and an overwhelmingly supportive community. In fact, sometimes we ask ourselves what is there not to celebrate? We don't have an answer!
Celebrate with us by following our story in this issue of Inside DCS and on Facebook and Instagram. Happy Sunday!
Community Cocoa Brings Valuable Feedback
On February 22, staff, parents, and members of the community were invited to share their feedback on a draft strategic plan for the district. Students on Dr. Marschhausen's Superintendent Student Advisory Council shared about the plan while serving hot cocoa and sweet toppings. The next stop for the strategic plan is presentation at an upcoming Board of Education meeting.
Moments with Marschhausen
Superintendent Dr. John Marschhausen has recently started writing a weekly blog about leadership, action, and mindset.
