The Aug. 19 meeting opened with a report from Board of Education Chairman Ginger Bailey. She said new teacher orientation went well and she was pleased by the excitement of the new hires.
“These people are ready to go,” she said.
Bailey said it is the goal of the board to let people know they care for them.
The chairman thanked Gray United Methodist Church for their gift of school supplies.
“We certainly thank them and appreciate the fact they understand not all students are on a level playing field. The church has done this for several years, and I thank them for it,” she said.
