WYNONA SCHOOL NEWS

Submitted by Administrator Shelly Shulanberger

School is in full swing. Students and teachers both seem to be adjusting well to the changes this year.

As a reminder, for the safety of our students, they should not be at school before 8:05. There is not a teacher on duty until 8:05. Students can arrive at school between 8:05-8:25. Classes begin at 8:30. School is released at 3:35. It is important for students to be actively engaged in class as much as possible with very minimal disruptions. Please remember, the street between the school and ball field is a one way only during school hours.

We are selling ice cream every Friday for $0.25 a cup.

Teachers are asking elementary parents to check their students’ backpacks daily for notes, homework and planners. Their planners should be read and signed every night. This is a wonderful way of communicating with the teacher and knowing what is happening in your child’s education.

We are looking for volunteers to practice math facts and listen to children read. Also, the Farm to School Program will be visiting our school in September. We will need around 10 volunteers to help during this event. If you are interested, contact Mrs. Shulanberger.

We will be celebrating Grandparent’s Day on Sept. 11.

WYNONA BOARD OF TRUSTEES MEET

The Wynona Board of Trustees met for their regular meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 18.

The Board conducted regular monthly business and discussed the trash service. Since the agreement between the Town and J C & Sons was a verbal agreement and exceeded the amount of increase according to the original contract, the Board voted to lower the trash price by 50 cents to $11.99 from $12.49.

The new trash prices will be reflected on the September billing.

The Board also notified J C & Sons that they would be cancelling their contract in May of 2019.

The Board discussed trying to put signs on both ends of the town with flower beds and a nice Town of Wynona sign. After reviewing the state rules and regulations, it was determined that we could not comply, so the Board put the idea on hold.

Attending the meeting were Ernie Jackson, Darryl Stone, Brian Lenington, Donna Swanner, Della Carter, Goober Robinson, Nancy Deatherage, Loretta Little, Janet Delaney and Tennie Slone.
