Middletown Welcomes New Faces

When teachers and staff return to school there will be some new faces in the crowd.  In fact, this year Middletown welcomes 100+ teachers and staff and four new administrators.  Each of the hires was made to replace a pervious staff member; none of the positions are additional or new to the district’s bottom line.


“This is an exciting time for our schools and you can just feel the energy,” stated Sam Ison, superintendent.  “We have some wonderful things happening for our students, like the construction projects but we also have some new employees and they are thrilled to be at Middletown.”


Like many districts throughout Ohio, the last school year is one of the big retirement years for teachers and staff.  That is due to the changes in Ohio’s retirement system which made it very attractive for someone at the end of their career to retire then.

Mayfield Student Pays it Forward

One of Mayfield Elementary's 5th Grade ELL students, Robert Medina, saved over $200 in Middie Bucks to pay it forward to his 2nd grade brother Abraham.  Robert purchased a gently used BMX bike from Mayfield Elementary's Pride Shop.  When asked why, Robert said Abraham needed it more than he did. After word traveled through the school of this generous love and integrity, the Mayfield Elementary staff discovered Robert didn't have a bike of his own and decided one more act of pride was needed.  Mayfield Elementary presented Robert with his very own, brand new BMX bike, helmet, and lock all in his favorite color: red.  Both boys were celebrated and honored in front of Robert's 5th Grade peers at Mayfield's 5th grade graduation.  Mayfield Principal, Andrea Blevins, said Robert's actions embodied what being a Middie truly means to which the crowd responded in a standing ovation.
