This past Friday, September 28th, Circleville Elementary School held its second ‘Career Connection Friday’ series centered around post-graduation pathways and the ideals of ‘determination, desire, and drive’.

The event kicked off at student arrival as our Elementary Tigers were welcomed in to school by our high school student-athletes and the Circleville High School Marching Band playing an array of pep rally tunes. Student-athletes would then visit each classroom and discuss what their future career plans were after graduation and then would read a book to each classroom.
From there, classes headed south to the Circleville High School auditorium for an assembly with motivational speaker, singer, songwriter David Wells. David expanded on the themes of determination, desire, and drive through innovative means weaving in his talent for playing the trumpet and flugel horn with motivational videos.
The event was capped off at 1:30 p.m. with a pep rally in the Savings Bank Stadium where all 1,150 Circleville Elementary School students packed the new home stands for a pep rally surrounding college and career readiness. Classes displayed collegiate pennants, signs, and banners as students were again welcomed by the band and would hear from a variety of CCS administrators on what pathway led them to a career in education.

Circleville City welcomes additional nurses into schools

Circleville City Schools – With the recent retirement of one of our beloved school nurses, Mrs. Karen Borland, this past December, the district and Berger Health Systems have furthered their partnership by providing additional nursing support moving forward.

While daily healthcare procedures for students under our care will remain the same, we wanted to introduce our families to the new Berger nurses who will be assisting with phone calls, treatment, and medication administration in the coming months.

Jaime McKeivier

Nurse Jaime McKeivier is in her 5th year at Circleville City Schools tending to the health and wellness of PK-12 students.

Our talented nurse Jaime McKeivier will continue to oversee the medical records, logistics, and needs of all 2,200 students in the district, but will now be supported by on-campus Berger nurses Mrs. Rachael Knapp and Mrs. Angela Baer. Baer and Knapp will take turns rotating through each of the three district buildings to assist with the medical needs of our students.

Some Tiger staff and students have already had the privilege of working with these two new faces on campus as they have previously been involved in district health care initiatives in the form of the county convenience clinic and the Berger-Tiger Care Clinic for students which rolled out earlier this school year.

Baer, pictured below, is a returning Circleville City alumnus and has been at Berger since October 2016. When she is not serving her community through health and wellness initiatives, she also serves as a mom of a four: Jessica, Ashley, Tyler, and Hayden.

Rachael Knapp, pictured below, has also been involved with the Tiger Family in the past serving our staff and other area government employees in the Berger’s county Convenience Care Clinic where she has been for the past three years. In addition to her role as a nurse, Knapp is a proud mom of three: Caleb, Cameryn, and Cohen. Rachael Knapp

Circleville City Schools welcomes Mrs. Knapp and Mrs. Baer into the fold on campus starting this month and thanks Berger Health Systems and Berger CEO Tim Colburn for their extended efforts in promoting and fostering a culture of health and wellness in our schools.

If you have any further questions regarding student health and wellness, please contact nurse Jaime McKievier at jaime.mckievier@cvcsd.com or 740-474-2495.
