Chardon celebrates school board
The Chardon Local School District celebrated School Board Recognition Month by thanking the Chardon Board of Education.
Students created gifts and cards that matched the 2020 Ohio School Boards Association’s Planting the Seeds of Success theme, including finger-painted leaves on trees from Tiny Topper Preschool students. Chardon High School seniors Kaylie Malloy and Caleigh Dawson, who serve as student liaisons to the board, also expressed their gratitude to the board during their January presentation.
“There is something really special about Chardon,” Kaylie said during her presentation. “It’s obvious how much you care about our students. You help build this school community and support it.”
