Superintendent's Message

A Greeting from the Superintendent

Kathy Mollenkopf
Welcome to the website for Crestview Local Schools!  It is my pleasure to serve as the new Superintendent and continue to lead our administration, teachers and staff on a path that will enrich and enhance the educational opportunities for our students as 21st century learners.
As we begin the 2018-2019 school year, our newly updated website provides parents and community members with direct access to resources including, but not limited to, our district’s academic and athletic event calendars, student registration information, student handbooks and guidelines as well as general district updates that showcase our students’ activities, their talents and abilities, and their accomplishments.  A special thank you to Shane Leeth as the district’s Technology Coordinator for his leadership in the implementation and management of our newly updated website as well as Kristie McCormick, Public Relations Director, for creative concepts that helped to shape the final product.

There are several links on our website that you will find useful.  One link specifically takes you to our district’s Quality Profile (available September 1).  Please take opportunity to check it out.  Kristie McCormick took the lead in the design of the profile and has created a document that showcases our students and school district.  You can also access a link to the district’s Local Report Card (available September 30).  Links are now available that to share information from the Village of Convoy and the Village of Wren. 
There will be several new faces to our Crestview community this year as we welcome the following new employees: Jessica Schuette, Elementary Principal; Lindsay Breese, Director of Curriculum and Instruction; Abby Saalfrank, Elementary Intervention Specialist; Nick Leeth, Elementary Intervention Specialist; Samantha Recker, High School Intervention Specialist; Tyler Stevens, High School Life Sciences; Ami Callow, High School Math; Sara Buuck, Elementary Paraprofessional; Robin Schumm, Elementary Paraprofessional; Cindy Schaffner, Cafeteria; Ethan Waddles, Custodian; and Mike Hill, Bus Driver.  Matt Perkins is not new to the district, but he will serve as a new bus driver as well.

In addition to my change from Elementary Principal to the Superintendent, the following teachers and staff have changed positions: Dave Bowen, from Middle School Principal/Athletic Administrator to High School Principal; Trent Kreischer from Director of Curriculum and Instruction to Middle School Principal/Athletic Administrator; Cindy Tinnel from Elementary Intervention Specialist to HS/MS Intervention Specialist; Mimi Myers from Middle School Language Arts to High School Language Arts; Shawna Putman from Elementary Paraprofessional to Middle School Language Arts; Amy Hyitt from Elementary Paraprofessional to Transportation and Attendance Secretary; and Marcie Eberle from Cafeteria to Elementary Paraprofessional.
I am proud of Crestview Local Schools, and the nearly 900 students we serve.  Every student deserves a safe environment for learning as well as an education that affords options for choice upon graduation.  As a school district and a community, we owe our best to the students of this district.  So on behalf of the Board of Education, the administrators, teachers, and staff, I invite you to engage in opportunities to support the educational and extra-curricular endeavors of our students.  At any time if you have questions or comments, I am happy to talk with you.
