The first board meeting for the trustees of the School District of Mystery Lake meant the reorganization of the board.

 

The meeting took place Tuesday night at the school board office, with Trustee Ryan Land and Secretary-Treasurer Kelly Knott sending their regrets.

 

The first half of the meeting was the reorganization meeting for the board, which saw a new Chairperson elected. Trustee Don Macdonald will serve as the Chairperson for the 2017/2018 school year, with Trustee Janet Brady serving as Vice-Chairperson.

 

The second half of the meeting saw the regular meeting of the board, with reports from both Superintendents as well as trustee comments. The highlight of the second half was a report from the Superintendent of Human Resources, in which Angele Bartlett welcomed the 43 new teachers in the School District of Mystery Lake. Bartlett added that it is the biggest number of new teachers at one time that she can remember.

 

In addition to recognizing the new teachers, the board also passed on congratulations to Superintendent Lorie Henderson for 20 years of employment with the School District. She was one of three to be recognized for her service. 

 

The next meeting of the board will take place on September 26th.
