Dear Euclid Families,
Congratulations to this year’s inductees to the Euclid High Schools Sports Hall of Fame. Seven alumni will be honored at the 33rd Annual Euclid High Schools Sports Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Nov. 21 at Tizzano’s Party Center.
The Sports Hall of Fame recognizes outstanding achievements in athletics by graduates of Euclid, Shore and Central High Schools as well as coaches and honorary inductees. Plaques recognizing the inductees will be hung with other plaques in the new Euclid High School next year.
This year’s inductees are:

Fox 8 sports anchor John Telich will be recognized as the Charles K. Hill Memorial Service Award recipient. The award was created in honor of lifelong Euclid resident Charles “Chuck” Hill to honor individuals who have contributed to the advancement of Euclid Public Schools and the City of Euclid through service and leadership.
As a member of the Euclid Sports Hall of Fame, I’m excited to welcome this class into the Hall. I encourage you to join me in honoring this year’s inductees.
Euclid High School will celebrate the arts and music in 2020 with the performance of “Fame the Musical.”
The music department announced this month that Fame will be the 2020 “Big Show.” Choir Director Tyler Pearl, who will direct the Big Show, is hopeful that the community will come out and get involved with the arts.
“I just felt that with the current group of very talented students we have that I needed to find a show that provided lots of opportunities for everyone to shine and do what we do best - bring the energy and show off our dancing abilities,” Mr. Pearl said. “Our students are some of the most naturally talented I have ever seen, and while I may be biased, I think our kids will breathe new life into this older classic.”
Auditions will begin next week for Fame. The community will be able to watch the performance March 26-29 at Euclid High School.
Our music programs engage children in school while teaching practice and discipline. They also build teamwork and help children connect with other people. Let’s show our support by attending the Big Show and other performances held throughout the year.
Our next Euclid Board of Education meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Nov. 25 at Arbor Elementary School. I encourage Arbor families to attend, hear a presentation about the school and honor its students, staff, faculty and parents of the month.
