Joanne Schaus, 50
President of Twinsburg City School District Council PTA
There are plenty of parks, walking trails and green spaces. Twinsburg is also connected to the Summit County Metro Parks system. We have an outdoor community pool, plus a fitness center, community center, senior center and a thriving youth theater program. These are all things that my family and I enjoy while living here.
It is a great place to raise a family. The most rewarding thing for me is seeing the leaders of the schools, board members and staff. This year, with all the challenges they had during the pandemic, they continued to show up and care for the kids — even for the students who were virtual.
If there were class parties or activities at the schools, they also delivered party boxes and activity boxes for the kids who were experiencing school virtually. Everyone made sure the community stayed together and went out of their way with sending and gathering items.
That’s what I mean when I say we have great schools and our community supports our district. Our PTAs are very active and provide so much enrichment for our students and support to our teachers. Our volunteers on the PTA selfishly give their time and energy to provide for and be involved in the schools and our community.
It has been great living in a neighborhood where my kids can ride their bikes and play outside safely. Twinsburg has always felt like home, and it’s a community that always steps up to help those in need.
