continued Farrell also shared with the board that at the most recent “True North” meeting—where representatives from the Indian Lake, Minerva, Johnsburg, Newcomb and Long Lake districts gather to discuss various issues—Minerva was recognized as being the best attended school in the region. The various schools discussed ways that they could work together in order to benefit all students. Sharing resources between special education programs and finding ways to further utilize distance learning technologies to enhance and enrich student learning, were two of the major topics discussed.
The board accepted with regret the resignation with the purpose of retirement of Robin Keleher, who has taught social studies at Minerva for the past 10 years. Corey read a note of thanks that she had written to the board in which she thanked them for the opportunity to teach at Minerva and called it her “dream job.”
Several board members and administrators will be attending the Community Service Award Dinner that will be held on May 10 at the Great Escape Lodge. A Minerva student, Messena Green, is being honored at this event for her community service. The event begins at 6 p.m.
