GSISD earns excellent nutrition audit


Photo by Pam Millican Grand Saline ISD recently performed very well on state’s nutrition audit. Recognized for the accomplishment were Grand Saline High School child nutrition workers, from left, Casey Vaughn, Patricia Woodall, Cafeteria Manager Jetta Heinrich and Child Nutrition Director Tricia Vaughn. Not pictured are Donna Bolch and Shirley Waid.

The Grand Saline ISD Cafeteria workers were recognized during the Nov. 16 meeting of the school board for their outstanding performance on a recent state audit and inspection.

The associates were nervous beforehand, Child Nutrition Director Tricia Vaughn said.

Vaughn said the auditor reassured her by saying that at most schools two or three problem are found. At Grand Saline, the state auditor noted one problem with a door hinge which was corrected before she left the property, Vaughn said.

Vaughn brought several of the high school nutrition workers to the meeting to be recognized for their exemplary work and dedication to the students of Grand Saline.

“The auditor’s official report was extremely complimentary,” Superintendent Trish Elliott said.

Student Shelby Arellano spoke to the school board about her experiences with the new mentoring program – both as a student being mentored last year and as a mentor this year.

Grand Saline ISD reestablishes mentoring program

Last year, Grand Saline ISD reestablished its mentoring program for students on all campuses. The program consists of two aspects; students are teamed with a “reading buddy” and teamed with a “big brother” or “big sister.”

“We are especially excited about our High School students who are serving as big brothers or sisters for our younger students,” Program Coordinator Deb Sikes said. “These students did a great job of helping our younger children feel accepted and important. They made a difference in the lives they touched and we appreciate the work they did last year.”

Eight students volunteered last year and more than 30 high school students have volunteered to mentor this year. A student that was mentored last year became a mentor this year.

The regular meeting of the board of trustees of Martins Mill ISD was held Oct. 19.  All board members were present. 

The meeting began with introducing the students of the month.  Elementary students Maria Reyes and Jake Taylor were chosen for the month of October.  Junior high student Blaine Sigler and high school student Bethany Welsh were also chosen by their teachers.

Each principal also reported on improvement plans for the campuses.  Both principals emphasized their main focus right now is on mathematics.    

During the superintendent report, a facility update was given on the campus.  A review of the campus found that new air conditioners are needed in the gymnasium.  The board will decide how many they will replace at a future meeting.

Fruitvale’s Leadership Program


Courtesy photo Members of the inaugural Fifth Grade Leadership Team organized a fundraiser which gave away a JoeBot the Robot.

Leslie Joslin taught at Fruitvale for 18 years while obtaining her master’s degree in counseling. Then she became counselor at the district’s Hallie Randall Elementary.

One of Joslin’s goals as a counselor was to establish a Leadership Team. She said she felt building leadership skills would help students perform better in school and give them the best opportunity to be caring successful adults.

“Our goal is to build leaders one child at a time,” she said. “I felt a fifth grade leadership team with two students nominated from their teacher each nine weeks with a total of eight a year would best serve our elementary campus

Joslin implemented a guidance program based on “The 7 Habits of Happy Kids,” a program written by Muriel Summers in collaboration with Franklin Covey, publisher of author Stephen Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People.”
