Here are the highlights from the March 21 school board meeting:

  • The Drug Free Coalition produced two public service announcements on staying drug- and alcohol-free, one by Junior High students, the other by High School students.  The HS version was entered in a community-wide competition and has received very strong scores; it is unknown whether they won yet.
  • We are 2/3 of the way through the budget year and still on track.  Treasurer Debbie Caudle is carefully monitoring the budget, including the areas where reductions were made.
  • The Senior Engagement Committee, a board committee designed to increase interaction between retirees and our students, changed its name to the Silver Eagles Community Outreach committee.
  • The Junior High will have required summer reading for all students starting this year, instead of just honors students.  It is extremely important to emphasize reading, and to keep students’ reading skill up during the summer months.  A number of exciting books have been chosen.  There will also be cross-curricular connections next school year, allowing interdisciplinary lessons with science and language arts.
