Wednesday evening’s Board of Education meeting was dedicated as Board Appreciation Night. Many students from Oakwood and Countrywood Primary Centers were on hand to thank the board members for their dedication and commitment to providing a quality education.

The young students gave each board member a hand-crafted present and read a card that talked about all the things they were appreciative of. At board meetings, residents are given a chance to be heard, educational and musical presentations are offered, policy discussions take place, and issues are debated in an open forum. If you haven’t been to a board meeting, you owe it to yourself to attend and participate or just listen and become informed. If you’re already attending board meetings regularly, we thank you for your participation.
