Kingsland prepares for end of year, looks forward to new facility

"It takes a lot of boxes to move a school!!"

These were the words of Mitch Lentz, Chairman of the Kingsland Board of Education at their regular meeting on Thursday evening, May 22. Lentz was referring to the current building program of the District. He applauded the efforts of everyone in getting the job done and the hard work it has taken to move several hundred boxes into classrooms to make room for the new structure that will greet students in the fall.

A report from the project manager indicated that everything is on schedule and within the budget. This was acknowledged by the District Business Manager, Kathy Beevers who said that a review of expenditures and payments made coincide with the timetable and expected costs.

Freedom Shrine

Bernie House, a member of the Spring Valley Exchange club was present and asked the cooperation of the Board in choosing areas in the High School and Middle School to display the "Freedom Shrine" on a permanent basis.

The Freedom Shrine is made up of photographic reproductions of the documents that were originally on display in 1947 on the Freedom Train that traveled across the U.S. giving residents an opportunity to see these historic documents in person.

Lentz said that he has had conversations with Bernie House and agrees that this is an excellent opportunity for students in the District to better understand the values that this country is founded on. He suggested that one display would be on the wall near the music suite on the south side of the High School and the site for the Middle School would be chosen in the future.

The Exchange Club is an advocate of performing civic functions such as the Healing Fields a few years ago and furnishing Historic Essays with students. The Board congratulated Bernie House and the Exchange Club for their service to the community and the pride that will be displayed in the Freedom Shrine.

The 2008-09 School Calendar was approved. Graduation will be on May 24, 2009, the last day of school for seniors will be May 22 and the last day of school next year will be May 29th. It was also announced that there will be one additional Staff Development Day before school begins this fall.
