HURON — With the new school year underway, the Huron School Board of Education had a positive meeting, focused on the thriving start to school that the district has experienced.
“I want to congratulate everyone on a successful beginning to the year,” said Superintendent Terry Nebelsick.
All the staff, students, parents and personnel involved in the Huron School District that worked together for an efficient kickoff were offered thanks in all aspects of preparation to have a roaring start for the Huron Tigers.
“Our full slate of activities is also off to a really great start. We know that the other half to education is that if we give a solid academic base, plus teaching to be active and interactive with other people, the students become active citizens,” Nebelsick explained. “So I really want to congratulate all of the coaches, the student participants and their parents in the activities that are going on right now.”
It was also noted the principals in the Buchanan, Madison and Washington Centers offered thank yous for the entire staff making sure every child was safely guided to their new teachers.
“On the fun side of things,” Nebelsick added that Homecoming is approaching. Excitement is in the air with many activities planned. “In order to have celebrations with students,” he added. “Then of course, the volleyball match and football game will take place, plus the Hall of Fame Banquet.”
The board’s goal review and setting session is set for next week.
“Good is the enemy of great,” Nebelsick said. “We’ve gotten quite good at several of the things we do, and now we push forward to true greatness with academic achievement.”
It was also discussed that binding growth and proficiency will assist in encouraging the students to reach the best of their abilities and achieve the greatness they desire as individuals. School safety always remains a steady practice for the district, which the board maintains as a priority goal.
In new businesses, the branding package that the board adopted previously is being looked into for identity guideline policies for trademarking the new logo.
“This is a guideline for anybody that will be using our logos just to make sure we don’t run into the same problems we have in the past with several different logos through people changing or distorting them. This will be the streamline, professional looking image we will continue to have for years and years.” Garret Bischoff and Craig Lee explained.
The process will continue as the committee makes a decision with a firm on which logos need to be trademarked exactly and what the policies are.
A first reading was heard on Monday, and will be up for adoption at the next School Board meeting.
