Change in board meeting

 

September 5, 2018



Our Lyle School Board would like everyone to know there has been a change in their timetable: “We’ve had a change to our regular school board meeting date. It’s now the fourth Wednesday of the month, except for December, when it will take place on the third Wednesday. So, our next meeting will be 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 26, and October’s meeting will be on the 24th. You can always find the dates on our webpage at http://www.lyleschools.org/page/2 or Deb Stenberg, Communications Director / Executive Assistant to the Superintendent, (509) 365-2191.” They also wish to convey to the public: “Stay connected on Lyle School District’s Facebook page or on our website at Lyle School District [www.lyleschools.org].”

The board also appointed a new School Board Member. Traci Waddington was sworn in to fill Phil William’s seat. She took the oath of office at the board meeting Tuesday evening, Aug. 21. Traci is the mom of an eighth grader and lives in Dallesport. She’ll fill out the remainder of what remains of Phil’s term of office, which ends Dec. 31, 2019.

The kids and leaders of KLASAC are hoping you will join them for their fifth-year celebration on Sept. 15 at noon in the Lyle School Parking Lot. They are planning a barbecue lunch and fun activities for the whole family. If you haven’t attended one of these celebrations you have missed out. Find out for yourself how many of our local kids that are not on drugs, or out drinking and getting into shenanigans; it is amazing. Add a free barbecue? That’s a plus! So show them your support. You’ll be glad you did.

An AARP Drivers Safety Course is scheduled in Goldendale in September. The cost for AARP members is $15. and non-members $20. Class dates and times are: Sept. 17 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Sept. 18 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (attendance for both days is required). Location: Goldendale Grange, 228 E. Darland St. Registration: 773-3757. The best thing about it is that Washington State law requires insurance companies to provide a discount to policy holders who provide proof of completion of the course.

You know the old saying “Use it or Lose it”? Well that also applies to your political rights. If you don’t use your ability—your privilege—to vote, you will lose your chance to make changes you deem necessary. If a politician is not doing what they promised, and an opposing candidate claims they would, doesn’t it make sense to vote for that person? If the person in office is doing a great job and fulfilling those promises, don’t you feel they are worthy of keeping them there? If an amendment is about to be added, or deleted from a document, and you believe it should or shouldn’t, isn’t it wise to do your best to make sure it does or doesn’t? Your vote does count. Write, call, email your congressmen or women. Let your voice be heard. Whether you are registered Democrat, Republican, Independent, or whatever—vote! You can make a difference.
