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 learners, families, and the Manheim Central community.
At the January 14, 2019 School Board Meeting, Board members were honored with a musical performance by High School learners and their Band Director, Mr. John Brackbill. Middle School learners presented beautiful hand painted artwork to each member, and Elementary learners from Doe Run and HC Burgard shared a video created to show their appreciation. Certificates of Recognition were presented by Superintendent, Dr. Peter Aiken with the following message. Learners and their families enjoyed cookies in the lobby after their presentations.
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.
Every January, we take time to celebrate and recognize the challenging and vital work they do on behalf of our students, families and community. School directors volunteer man hours each month to do 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 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 our Baron Leaders!
I would like to thank you, the Manheim Central School Board, for your service and for leading our District as Difference Makers!
