During the week of Feb. 9- 15, communities across the state will honor the dedicated service of local boards of education during School Board Recognition Week, as proclaimed by Governor Michael Parson.
At the regularly scheduled Ste. Genevieve R-II Board of Education meeting on Jan. 21, 2020, our district recognized and thanked our Board members for their service and dedication. The Board was recognized with a certificate from the Missouri School Boards’ Association and a proclamation from Governor Michael Parson. Employees shared notes of appreciation, and students created videos, cards and posters, while the schools brought in dinner and dessert for the Board of Education members.
“Although showing appreciation should be a year-round process, taking advantage of School Board Recognition Week assures that these important people receive some of the thanks they deserve,” Dr. Julie Flieg said. “We would like to thank our students and staff for taking the time to celebrate and share appreciation for this important group!”
The goal of School Board Recognition Week is to build awareness and understanding of the important function an elected board of education plays in communities and schools. All Missouri citizens are asked to recognize the important contributions of these men and women and focus attention on the vital role these public officials play in the education of Missouri’s children.
School Board Recognition Week is sponsored by the Missouri School Boards’ Association. MSBA is a private, not-for-profit organization that exists to help school boards succeed.
