November School Board meeting highlights

Heber-Overgaard, AZ
Heber-Overgaard School District #6

The Nov. 10, 2015 School Board meeting had several highlights. The first was Mountain Meadows’ third graders who presented their project on ancient Egypt.

The Mogollon High School Mustangs’ Volleyball team reported on their season which ended Nov. 6th in a heartbreaking loss to Pinon in the state tournament.

“In the regular season games, Pinon beat us, then we beat them in the playoffs and then went head to head with them at State,” reported Coach Theresa Kelton. “The team played their hearts out and I’m so proud of them. They set their goals and accomplished those goals.”

Coach Slade and the Mustang football team were there as well to report on their season. “We have gone to state 12 of the last 26 years and won our division for the fourth consecutive year. The kids played well and we’re already working on next season.”

The Robotics Club also reported on their first competition of the year at ASU. The robot had to go up a hill, grab the top bar and suspend from it and hold its own weight. The team got their first win plus they won the Inspire award for their “gracious professionalism” among the other teams. They are double qualified for State at the end of February.

The Spanish Club got the okay to raise funds for a possible March trip to either Guatemala or Guadalajara for a service project.

Other subjects such as Beyond Textbooks and teacher evaluation methods were discussed. Also, an update on the Sylvania Energy Saving Resolution will be discussed at the January meeting.

The regular school board meeting for December will not be held as the Governing Board will be attending the Arizona School Board Association Legislative Workshop and 58th Annual Conference in Phoenix on Dec. 10-11.
