Principal's Message

Dear Buckeye Valley School Community,


As warm weather turns to the chill of Fall in Central Ohio, we at BVEE are well into the school year and the work we love so much. Oh yes, there are challenges! We are still trying to balance the COVID Impact and making sure our boys and girls feel safe and supported no matter what. 


But we have completed a quarter along with parent-teacher conferences and recently we welcomed COSI on Wheels into our school and experienced our traditional Halloween walk; albeit indoors. The kids had fun and our community supported us fully with candy treats. Combined with the COSI visit, it was a wonderful week.


Hopefully, as time goes by, we can continue to get back to our normal routines. After being here a few months, I find the school community to be a very caring place. We are blessed with resources and personnel who are constantly looking for effective ways to serve students and their families and to discover ways to engage kids not only in their classrooms but also outside of the school parameters.


We are renewing relationships with our middle and high schools and are meeting soon to see how we can provide experiences for our boys and girls to engage in the arts by hosting concerts and presentations here at East or taking our kids to those schools to see and hear other students perform.


Everyone wants what is best for their children. I love our staff and know that your kids are in good hands here. As a parent, I know how critical it is to breathe deeply and know your child is safe and cared for when out of your sight. We are also looking for ways to engage our community in our school and welcome your thoughts, whether it is about a business relationship, mentoring opportunities, career motivation and more.


As always there is so much to do, and we appreciate the support of our PTO and all the families that support us. Children perform better when we are all involved, and they react positively when they know we are on the same page.


Please be in touch if we can help in any way. Working together we can create wonderful memories for your boys and girls.
