Chagrin schools encourage family bonding
Chagrin Falls Schools held its spring “Chagrin Cares Family First Night” on the evening of Monday, March 2. Teachers didn’t assign homework and no club meetings nor athletic practice or games were held after 5 p.m. Students and staff left school at the dismissal bell and were encouraged to focus on connecting with their families. Chagrin Falls Schools partnered with Community Education and the Chagrin Valley Chamber of Commerce to offer specials at local restaurants like Cowboy, Master Pizza, Burntwood Tavern and Yours Truly.
