Silver School Board opened its May 19 meeting at 6:01 p.m. with all five members present. Justin Wecks asked questions about board policy during public input at the opening session, which is limited to agenda topics. Linda Pafford followed with similar comments in the public periods and followed with a statement about teacher evaluations and factors which she said they could not control, such as numbers, student absences and other unfair portions of the state's evaluating system.
Claudie Thompson, history teacher, introduced six girls who represented Silver in National History Day finals at the national level with their projects that had already passed regional and state competitions. One project was a presentation on Hanna Barbera as cartoonists and the work they did and their influence on their generation. Another was a ten-minute documentary they put together, then showed on the big screen. Their topic was John Kennedy's handling of the Cuban missile crisis in the early 1960s. Read more...
