A Great Start!

Thanks for making it a great first week back! It was great to see familiar smiling faces and expressions of excitement from our new students and staff! 

Congratulations to our recent inductees into the K.A.T.S Hall of Fame: Former Keystone Head Football Coach Rob Clarico, Student-Athlete Kara Dill, retired Keystone Girls Basketball Coach Scott Terry, the 2004 Keystone High School Softball Team, and the 2001-2002 Keystone Girls Basketball Team. These individuals were honored at the 22nd annual K.A.T.S. Hall of Fame awards banquet. Thanks to the K.A.T.S Officers, Mike Conrad, Charles Sturgill, Jr., Gary Kincannon, Matthew Devore, Dustin Banks, Ricky Shaw, Chad Whitacre, Scott Sooy, and Andrew Gibson for their commitment to the Keystone Athletics program. 

In upcoming events, we are inviting the kindergarten class to attend our first home football game where they will be recognized as our newest Wildcats. This recognition will give our kindergarteners and their families a warm welcome to our District as they become part of the Keystone family. The game takes place on Friday, September 6 and kindergarteners will be arriving at 6:30pm, with recognition to follow at 6:40pm on the track.  Thanks to our Athletic Director Jon Bailey and KES Principal Maura Neville for planning this special and soon-to-be annual event!

Thanks for printing and posting photographs of your child on his/her first day of school using our Keystone back to school signs! Signs are available for our kindergarten students on our website @ https://www.keystonelocalschools.org/about/news/1664553/first-day-of-school-pictures. I am looking forward to meeting our Class of 2032 on Tuesday, Sept 3.

Lastly, we are excited to promote a seminar from the Lorain County Manufacturing Sector Partnership. The seminar’s focus is educating parents and students about career paths that fall outside of the realm of college attendance, specifically those in the manufacturing industry. The brief seminar will provide a discussion panel consisting of local manufacturers who will talk about various careers the manufacturing industry has to offer, including many that do not require a 4-year college degree. This one-hour informative session is on Thursday, Sept 5 from 5-6:30pm at LCCC’s Spitzer Conference Center at LCCC. Visit the news section of our website to learn more!

Have a wonderful weekend Keystone!
