Lancaster School Board recognized


Members of the Lancaster Central Board of Education were recognized for its service at the board meeting held Monday in the Hillview Elementary School auditorium.

“We decided to celebrate and acknowledge all of our trustee members here at Hillview this evening,” Principal Amy Moeller told the audience.

Students from all seven schools in the district were in attendance, with the theme of the evening being children’s literature. One by one, the students read passages from each board member’s favorite children’s book.

“We all began to love reading as young children, and certain books will always hold a special place in our hearts,” Moeller said. “Stu- dents picked out passages and made special connections in honor of our Board of Education members. On behalf of the Lancaster schools, students and administrators, we thank all of the Board of Education members for their dedicated time and service towards the community.”

Eighth-grader Benjamin Fox, Student Council president at Lancaster Middle School, spoke to board members about how they have had a positive influence not only on him, but the district as a whole.

“You have made sure that all students are members of the one Lancaster community and have equal access to educational, musical and athletic opportunities,” Benjamin said. “Thank you sincerely for all of the things you do to help make this school district the best it can be.”

In another matter, the board approved a field trip for the eighth-grade French class at the middle school for a four-day trip to Quebec City. This has been an annual trip ever since 2010.

The next Board of Education meeting will take place on Monday, Nov. 7, at Lancaster Middle School, 148 Aurora St., Lancaster. The start time of that meeting has been pushed back to 8 p.m. For more information on district-related news, visit www.lancasterschools.org.
