Hello, pumpkin!

It’s that time of year, folks! Everything is coming up pumpkins! Coffee, beer, pie, rolls, Peeps, Cheerios, pancakes, cookies, cup-o-noodles, ice cream, doughnuts, oatmeal, and Cliff Bars, to name a few. All this pumpkin-flavored stuff also means we made it through the beginning of the school year. This is an amazing feat any school year but with this year’s challenges, it takes it to a whole new level. Great job, everyone!

I hope you had a chance to join our September Lunch & Learn (sponsored by Finalsite) covering the topic of OCR complaints. It was a good presentation and an engaging discussion. Please be sure to register for our OHSPRA/OSBA Fall Communication Virtual Workshop on Oct. 21. The topics include “Wellness in School Leadership: How, Why and Now” and “Organize Your Thoughts...Free Your Mind of Worry!”

So, join us for our joint workshop with OSBA, drink your pumpkin coffee, and enjoy the autumn weather. For those of you who are on pumpkin overload, we will get through this. It’s almost over. ;)  Good grief!
Stay strong and stay safe.

Lou DeVincentis
President, OHSPRA

Still time to register for Oct. 21 Fall Workshop!

Does your work in school PR or other leadership role feel heavier than it used to? It’s not just you. The mission-driven, trauma-sensitive, consensus-building, high-performance, always-connected role you have puts your personal wellness at risk.

Register now for the Wellness in School Leadership fall workshop which offers strategies for your personal wellness in these high-stress times. The workshop is co-sponsored by OHSPRA and the Ohio School Boards Association. Read more about the workshop and speakers on our website and click here to register now.
