A Thank You to Manheim Central School District Board of Directors!
January is School Board Recognition Month and Manheim Central is joining other districts across the state to thank these community volunteers for their commitment and contributions to our public schools. We take time to celebrate and recognize the challenging and vital work they do on behalf of our students, families and community.
At the January 22, 2018 School Board Meeting, Board members were honored with musical performances by the High School Jazz Band and the Middle School String Ensemble. Doe Run and HC Burgard Elementary students created beautiful flower bouquets, and Certificates of Appreciation were presented by Superintendent, Dr. Peter Aiken.
A quality public education is a key that can open doors of opportunity for many students. Providing that education takes a team of committed people from educators and staff to parents and administrators. The nine members of our local school board are an important part of this team, making informed decisions that direct the course of our public schools.
School directors volunteer an average of 20 hours each month to board work, which includes adopting policy, voting on budgets, approving curriculum changes, choosing textbooks and reviewing hiring decisions to name a few. They take time to learn about the issues affecting public education and to seek innovative solutions.
As unpaid, locally elected officials, school directors are invested in their communities. They are our neighbors, friends, local leaders, parents and engaged senior citizens.
During this month of recognition, please take a moment and show your gratitude for school directors’ time, dedication and effort year-round. The job they do is necessary to ensure our schools remain a pathway to a promising future. Thank them for advocating on behalf of our collective interest, and most importantly, for making the success of our children their priority. We are Proud to have them as are our Baron Leaders!
