Become a Crusader for Euclid's Children

Kiddie City Child Care Community started in 2006 by serving 40 children and employing 16 staff in our leased building on the corner of Wilmore and E. 200 St.  In 2010, our expansion into the site of Sam’s Barbershop on E. 200th Street increased our capacity to serve 72 children and employ 27 full and part time staff at our non-profit child care center. But, there’s no more space.  In the last two years we’ve turned away two hundred children and their families from receiving services that include Universal PreK and Head Start enhancements.  It’s time to grow and expand the four star Step Up to Quality center one more time to provide Euclid’s youngest citizens with a great start in their educational careers.  Consider being a Super Hero to our Super Kids!  Invest in our GoFundMe campaign starting March 13, 2015 or  send a tax deductible donation to 20110 Wilmore Ave. Euclid 44123 to be used to furnish new classrooms, provide educational supplies, and beautify a new space to grow and learn. Attend or donate a raffle prize to our Funds for Fun Dinner, Dance and Raffle on Saturday, April 18, 2015.

Ss. Robert and William School Celebrates Another Successful Evening of Learning

Ss. Robert and William Catholic School has been hosting Evenings of Learning throughout the 2013-2014 school year.  The fourth, and final in a series, celebrated the Fine Art talents, which are found in our school and in our parish.  SRW students, parishioners and community were invited to display their own art work, as well as participate in the band/choir concert.

Many artists displayed poetry, water colors, charcoals and mixed media pieces for the open house.  Students were on hand to talk about what they have been learning in Art Class and they took interested individuals through their creative process in generating their own original art works.  A silent auction also took place on featured drawings and paintings crafted by our schoolchildren and an area photographer.

Students from Kindergarten through 8th grade had exhibited their handiwork completed in class throughout this past school year.  “Inspiration”, was the theme garnered by all pupils including a “Creation Station” where visitors were encouraged to free draw and showcase their own talents.  The beginning and advanced band musicians graced the stage and entertained the audience with their musical talents, and welcomed parish vocal groups to join in the fun!

Ss. Robert and William Catholic School is proud to showcase all the talent, skill and ability the SRW School and Parish Community has to offer.  Instrumental to the evenings’ success were faculty members, Miss Elizabeth Edwards, Art teacher, and Mrs. Beth Wortman, Music/Band teacher who encouraged, taught and inspired our students to use their imagination throughout this past school year, making this final Evening of Learning unsurpassed!               

Ss. Robert and William Catholic School is located at 351 East 260th Street, Euclid, Ohio 44132 and is now registering students for the 2014-2015 school year.  View our website at or call 216.731.3060 for additional details.
