CIRCLEVILLE — McDowell Middle School received its banner and a visit from the state superintendent of the Ohio Department of Education on Thursday after being named as a 2013 High Progress School of Honor.
“I’m here because of the achievements of the middle school,” said Dr. Richard Ross, state superintendent. “ It’s not a one shot deal. They’ve consistently maintained a high performance in their school over half a decade, and I think that’s to be congratulated.”
Ross visited a few classrooms, asking students about their future plans and what educational opportunities they thought they would need to make them happen.
“I think there is a lot of disconnect between what we do in schools and jobs and careers,” he said. “I think we need to do a better job in elementary, middle and high school of talking to kids about what careers are and what it takes, because sometimes that pathway isn’t clear to them.”
Marsha Waidelich, McDowell Middle School principal, said she was happy to have Ross visit some of the classes.
The art student at McDowell recently participated in a service project through the Pickaway County Red Cross. Art students wrapped and decorated over eighty Valentine’s Day boxes. The boxes were filled with assorted goodies and delivered to the Pickaway County Veterans living in group homes and care facilities in the area.
