WCS distributing grab ‘n go lunches for students 

WARREN – Warren City Schools is providing grab and go lunches for all district students at all of our five school buildings from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and several off-campus sites weekdays from Noon to 1 p.m. through the duration of the mandated statewide K-12 school closing.

To benefit from this program, students are asked to go the school building closest to where they live between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., regardless of where they are enrolled.

If the student is not within walking distance of the school, they may visit one of several off-campus/remote sites where grab and go lunches are being distributed from Noon to 1 p.m. A clearly marked Warren City Schools vehicle will be at each site to help identify it as a meal distribution location.

Families and community members with questions or concerns may call Warren City Schools Food Service Department at 330-841-2321.

Lincoln 2nd-grader Named Honorary Warren Police Officer

Krista Monsman has always been about helping people.

And, remarked the Lincoln PK-8 School 2nd grader, “What better way to do that than to serve as a police officer?”

The 8-year-old, who uses a wheelchair for mobility, said she would like nothing better than to pursue a career in law enforcement.

On Wednesday, she was given the opportunity to serve as an honorary Warren City Police Officer for a day after being sworn in by Michael Currington, a Warren City Police and School Resource Officer, who presented her with a police photo ID.

During the ceremony, attended by Krista’s parents and grandfather, Lincoln 2nd-graders and school leaders, Warren Mayor Doug Franklin proclaimed the day, Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2020, as Krista Monsman Day.

“This proclamation is to Krista Monsman, a second grade student, for her care, and compassion for others, her willingness to learn and her positive attitude,” Mayor Franklin said. “She is an outstanding example to all, especially to her fellow students, and to me as the mayor.”

Krista was unaware of the ceremony until after she entered the school gymnasium and Officer Currington called her to the platform.

“Since I’ve known her she has always been such a friendly, helpful student,” Currington said. “She’s told me she wants to be a police officer. She’s got a big heart, huge personality, great sense of humor, is always willing to help, just a great all around kid. She has all the traits to be a great police officer.”

Monsman can look forward to many opportunities working in law enforcement, such as serving as a dispatcher, becoming an analysts, even specializing in investigating cyber crimes, noted Currington.

“I’m just really happy right now,” Krista said. “I’m so happy they made this happen for me, that (Officer Currington) did this. “It’s a perfect day.”

Jefferson PK-8 to host District Wide Parent/Community Job & Resource Fair

WARREN – Warren City Schools’ Jefferson PK-8 School will host its first Parent/Community Job and Resource Fair from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 5, 2020.

The event will also feature community speakers, job preparation assistance, college/career exploration, and on-site job applications.

Speakers will include Trumbull County Prosecutor Stanley Elkins, who will talk about drivers’ license reinstatement, truancy and having a record expunged.

Free refreshments will be available and childcare will be provided.

Above & Beyond: WCS teacher post goes viral, leads to student meet-and-greet with Browns’ quarterback

Cloie Jones meets Baker Mayfield
WCS kindergartner Cloie Jones and her teacher Brandi Gaszo meet Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield

Through a social media post, Brandi Gazso, a kindergarten teacher at Lincoln PK-8, made it possible for one of her students to meet Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Ms. Gazso posted photos of student Cloie Jones in a Mayfield jersey and shared that she is the “BIGGEST Baker Mayfield fan!” – talking about how much she likes him – so much so that she has earned the nickname “Cloie Baker Mayfield” among her classmates.

Ms. Gazso’s tweet went viral and caught the attention of Mayfield’s wife. As a result, the Mayfields invited Cloie to a game, where she, accompanied by Ms. Gazso, received a few presents and got to meet her hero.

Ms. Gazso’s efforts to help make a Cloe’s’s dream come true – a story that has now been shared among news outlets locally and statewide –  is one more example of a Warren City Schools teacher going above and beyond for a student.
