A year ago this month, the Twin Valley Players presented its own Christmas gift to residents of the Sentinel’s coverage area – a gift that had been several years in the making.
It was a gift the TVP hoped would give on giving for many years to come.
Halifax to hire
HALIFAX • There will be a new principal at Enders-Fisherville Elementary School sometime next year.
The Halifax Area School Board recently approved the transfer of Daniel Borrelli to a position solely focusing on curriculum, instruction and assessment.
Borrelli currently holds those responsibilities in addition to serving as principal and grants co-coordinator.
The transfer will take place at a later date with no additional compensation.
The board also gave District Superintendent Dr. Michele Orner permission to advertise for a new Enders-Fisherville principal. The school is the district’s early education center, housing students in kindergarten and first grade.
According to Orner, creating a position that focuses on curriculum ‘‘is part of the overall plan to provide more structure and leadership to the district's academic program.
‘‘The district previously had an administrative position called assistant to the superintendent which focused on curriculum matters,’’ she said.
In her Entry Plan presentation to the school board (Sentinel, Dec. 9 issue), Orner said that curriculum realignment from kindergarten through high school is one of several district goals in the coming years.
Make-up day, meetings set. In other recent business, the board approved Thursday, April 2 as a make-up day for the cancellation of classes Nov. 26 due to a snowstorm. April 2 had been the first day of the district’s 2015 Spring Recess.
Meeting dates for 2015 also were approved. Two meetings a month will continue to be held the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, beginning at 7:30 p.m. The first meeting will largely be comprised of standing committee meetings. The second will typically be the session at which most school business is conducted. Both meetings are open to the public, and public comment segments are always included.
