The February Essex County School Board meeting has come and gone, but there were a few points of interest within the meeting that as a whole create an exciting look at the schools and their future plans.
February was School Board Appreciation Month in Virginia. Banners and balloons hung behind the school board members throughout the meeting and certificates were presented to the members for their service from the Virginia School Board Association. The month was also School Board Clerk Appreciation Month and the clerk, Sharon Saunders, was recognized.
The Board also recognized the Superintendent’s star students for the month. Tappahannock Elementary School presented students Jayshawn Spratley from kindergarten, Makaelyn Blagmon from first grade, Neh’Keilia Hill from second grade, and Kenedi Campbell from third grade. Essex Intermediate school presented students Heather Delano, runner up in the Essex Intermediate school spelling bee, and Verna Zhuo a fifth grader and champion of the spelling bee.
