Martins Mill board members met for the last meeting of the school year May 9. 

The board began the meeting by presenting the awards for students of the month.  The students of the month that were chosen for elementary were Tate Lowry and Mason McLemore.   Junior high student Keylee Latham and high school student Pierson Garner were also honored. 

The board also reviewed upcoming events and accomplishments of the students. Eleven high school students will attend the state academic UIL competition to be held in Austin May 23 through 25.  The golf team placed sixth in the state finals and the girls softball team advanced to the regional quarterfinals. 

During the superintendent report, the board reviewed letters of reasonable assurance that are given every year to the employees not under contract such as the food service director, maintenance director, support staff and substitutes. The letters thank them for their hard work and assure them of their positions in the next school year. 

The board also went over the school board member election timeline.  Anyone wishing to run for school board will be able to apply for the ballot from July 23 to Aug. 22.   There will be a total of four seats available.  Three seats are four-year terms and one seat is a two-year term.
