During the June Board meeting on Monday, the board accepted various donations totaling $9,894.36 that are designated to go toward 2015 scholarships, the Middle School Library Club, the Girls Track Camp Fund, and the Weightlifting Camp Fund.
The board also accepted funds from the Auditor of State, for various reasons, totaling $124,491.34.
The school board is still looking to fill seven employment positions before the 2015-2016 school year.
The board began the meeting by saying goodbye to two retiring teachers who hadn’t been able to make it to the May board meeting: Jim Merkowitz, the intervention specialist at Washington Middle School who retired from the district with 34 years experience, with 31 of those years being in the Washington C.H. City Schools.
Merkowitz said he was very happy to announce that this was a special day to accept the district’s thanks and recognition because it was also his 30th wedding anniversary. “I am very blessed because I couldn’t have done this without her support, and in five days, she’ll be an old retiree like me!”
The district also said goodbye to Teresa Woodruff, who is retiring with 30 years, as a Washington Middle School language arts teacher and gifted coordinator.
