Sylvania City Schools kicked off its push for a levy renewal
with a pep rally-like event on Tuesday. Hundreds of students, parents and teachers
gather in a gymnasium to start the campaign off with a buzz.
Sylvania is asking residents to approve a 3.8 mill operating
levy on the May ballot. That would cost about $11 a month per $100,000 of home
the amazing things that happen in Sylvania. We're a great community; a
community that takes pride in our schools and a lot of people move to Sylvania
for the school district," said Director of curriculum and Instruction Adam
The district handed out hundreds of t-shirts and yard signs
stamped with the words "Education for Success" at the rally.
"That is truly what we're about in Sylvania: educating our
students to be successful, to make a difference in the world. We want them to
be ready for the 21st century, with the skills they need to be successful
in a college or a career. We also want them to be safe and secure, making sure
our buildings are safe and secure as we move forward," said Finske.
