Superintendent's Message

August 9, 2023

An image of Dr. Catherine Trevathan.Welcome to the start of a new school year at Hillsdale Local Schools and to a brand-new PK-12 building! I am thrilled to greet our returning families and warmly welcome our new members who have joined the Hillsdale family.

Each new school year brings a sense of excitement and a promise of new beginnings, fresh experiences, and abundant opportunities for learning and growth. The sound of students' laughter in the corridors, the joy of reconnecting with friends, and the anticipation of new lessons to be learned - these are the elements that will truly bring our school building to life.

Our dedicated staff has been busy preparing for this school year throughout the summer. Our teachers have participated in professional development to bring innovative teaching strategies to our classrooms. The Hillsdale staff has worked tirelessly to ensure that our building is clean, safe, and ready for students. And our administrative team has been fine-tuning plans to ensure a seamless transition into the new school year and building.

This year, we will continue our commitment to providing a quality, inclusive, and engaging educational experience for each and every student. We are dedicated to fostering an environment where all students feel valued, challenged, and prepared for the future.

As your superintendent, I believe wholeheartedly that every student deserves a quality education and that only through the active participation of students, teachers, parents, and the community can we achieve this goal. Thus, I encourage each of you to stay involved, be proactive, and take full advantage of the opportunities Hillsdale Local Schools offers.

Remember, education is a journey we take together. It's a journey filled with discovery, challenges, achievements, and friendships that last a lifetime. Here at Hillsdale, we are all one team working together for the success of our students.

I wish you all a wonderful and productive school year. I look forward to meeting many of you in the days and weeks to come, and I thank you for your continued support of Hillsdale Local Schools.

Here's to an amazing new school year!

Yours in education,

Cathy Trevathan

Superintendent, Hillsdale Local Schools
