Hello Marlboro Community and Family Members,
My name is Mike Groholy and I couldn't be more excited to be joining the team here at Marlboro Elementary. This school has a wonderful history and traditions that I'm excited to learn about and be a part of during the school year. I would just like to say thank you very much to Mrs. Farrell for all of her years of service as the leader of the building and all of her guidance to help me transition into this role. She has helped to mold this building into what it is today and I hope to continue it down the same path. I would also like to thank the entire building staff for their patience and helping hand as I am stepping into this new role.
I currently reside in North Canton with my wife, Kourtney, and our dog, Dot. It has been a busy summer for both of us as we recently got married in July and are both starting new jobs. Kourtney is a high school math teacher at Green High School and Dot is a professional sleeper and guard dog who doesn't guard anything besides her toys. I'm originally from Parma, Ohio and still visit frequently to see family and friends. I did my undergraduate work at Walsh University, where I also ran cross-country and track, and did my graduate work at the University of Akron. After graduating, I was fortunate to find my first teaching job at the Minerva Local Schools as an elementary Title I reading tutor and held that position for two school years. I then moved to the Lake Local Schools for the last five school years as a second and third grade teacher. I'm very blessed to start my future as a principal here at Marlboro Elementary and look forward to growing as an educator.
The start of a new school year is both exciting and scary to everyone involved in its day-to-day operations. Everyone from the students to the parents, the teachers to the principal, the custodians to the bus drivers play a huge role in making this a great school year for our kids! I encourage you to play an active role in your student's education and make it as memorable and impactful as possible. Please get involved in our school and PTO events, ask the teachers questions, stop in the office to say hello, and take advantage of all of the opportunities to help your child succeed.
Please don't be a stranger and have a great start to the 2015-16 school year!
Mr. Michael Groholy
Principal, Marlboro Elementary
