January is School Board Appreciation Month

January is School Board Appreciation Month. These are people who receive no pay for their dedicated efforts. These are people who not only volunteer but go through the process of standing up for public education. They are locally elected school board members. They are your neighbors, and they care.

These public servants donate their time and talents to ensure that ALL our children have the best public schools we can provide. These people sit through meetings, read detailed reports, listen to parents’ concerns, and do the hard work to benefit the students and the community at large. And make no mistake about it, the whole community benefits from good schools.

Each January, we pause in our regular activities to say thank you to these dedicated volunteers. We appreciate their generous sharing of time and energy on behalf of our children. Local school board members are truly heroes for our schools. Join Smithville ISD in celebrating School Board Recognition Month in January by expressing your support and gratitude to our school trustees. We are indebted to them.

This past Monday, January 25, students and staff from across the district expressed appreciation for the Smithville ISD School Board trustees.

Mary A. Brown Primary presented the board members with a jumbo Tiger chocolate bar and the giant appreciation card signed by all the students and staff.

Smithville Elementary campus played a YouTube appreciation video for each board member and provided the members with individualized framed acrostic poems. Students assigned characteristics for each letter of all the trustees’ last names, along with a certificate with a QR Code that links to the video and a baked dessert.

Smithville Junior High students delivered a creative and colorful banner and then the SJHS Band performed an ensemble. Following the ensemble students presented each board member with a beautiful framed sheet of music (Smithville school song) with their initial in the middle of the picture.

Smithville High School brought each member a basket of healthy snacks, the Fighting Tiger T stained glass nightlight, and STUCO representatives who hosted a refreshment table and then expressed their appreciation with a presentation thanking each board member for their volunteer service.

The Child Nutrition Department for the personalized bucket of homemade salsa and chips and Superintendent, Dr. Rock McNulty, made a special presentation of appreciation on behalf of the district.
