JH/HS Open House  with Families

Mt. Healthy City School District Kicks Off an Amazing Year With Building Open Houses

Every new school year brings the opportunity for the families of Mt. Healthy City School District to attend an Open House or Back to School event.  This year was no exception. Each building in the Mt. Healthy CSD offered an Open House/Meet the Teacher Night for students and parents to meet new teachers, new administrative staff, visit classrooms, hear about building-wide expectations, gain important literacy information and much more. 

The Mt. Healthy Jr/Sr High School held their Open House on Thursday, August 11 to allow junior high and high school students to pick up their schedules. Parents or guardians were able to connect with teachers and staff. The Mt. Healthy Junior High School welcomed new and current administrators: Matt Morris, Principal, David Grathwohl, Assistant Principal, and Kianna Marks, Assistant Principal. The Mt. Healthy High School introduced a few new faces in addition to current administrators: Arnez Gray, Principal, Michael Lindsey, Assistant Principal for 9th grade, Amy Criswell, Assistant Principal for 10th grade, Tyler Meyer, Assistant Principal for 11th/12th grade (last names A-L), and William Amburgey, Assistant Principal for 11th/12th grade (last names M-Z). They look forward to a successful year of learning and growing. 

Parents and guardians of kindergarteners and preschoolers attended a virtual Open House for the new Early Learning Center, set to open in late October. The new Assistant Principals, Mrs. Burg and Mrs. Powers welcomed families and gave them a virtual tour of the building and the construction progress being made. They explained expectations and  procedures for students while they still attended the elementary buildings. Both Assistant Principals are excited to move into the new building in late October and celebrate the new space with our little Owls. 

On Wednesday, August 18, the day after school began for most district students both elementary buildings held an Open House/Meet the Teacher night. South Elementary welcomed families for a Meet the Teacher Night. During their event, families listened as the building principal and administrative staff explained expectations for the school year as well as highlighting some upcoming scheduled events. Families also had the opportunity to meet and talk with different individuals (staff, a representative of Girl Scouts USA, Mt. Healthy Band teachers, and South PTO representatives). Prior to Meet the Teacher Night, the building administrators invited families for a “Pop In & Meet the Principals” day to provide families the opportunity to meet Mrs. Brittany Dickerson, South’s new principal, Ms. Cynthia Vaugn, Assistant Principal, Ms. Laura Warman, Assistant Principal and Mr. Bob Buchheim, Dean of Students. The positive energy buzzing around South Elementary is encouraging for a fantastic school year for all students, staff and families.  

North Elementary an Open House.  Families were introduced to Mrs. Christina Ellis-Townsend, North’s new building principal and her new Assistant Principals:  Mr. Deondre Drakeford, Mr. Tony Greco, and Ms. Tenisha Smith. They shared building-wide expectations, new procedures, uniforms, and literacy information with the families. Parents and families then headed to classrooms to meet teachers and staff. The North staff is positive that this will be a wonderful school year for all students, staff and families.
