High school graduation scheduled for May 18 in Fisher

The Fisher school board set the high school graduation date for May 18 at 2 p.m. Superintendent Barb Thompson said it was probably safe to do it then even though as of today the district has used four of its five state allotted emergency days for cold and snowy weather. Thompson said that if additional days beyond the five are used, the district would appeal to the state and call the weather-caused days off an act of God and not be required to make them up.

The board also set eighth-grade promotion exercises for 6 p.m. May 27. That date could be moved back if students must attend school beyond that date.

Also, the two school principals reported on the recent half-day of teacher in-service training that had been delayed due to the weather. Grade school Principal Jim Moxley reported on his school's wellness committee that includes, among others, the school nurse and physical education teacher. Some of their activities have included Fitness Fridays and a parent informational session on packing healthy lunches.

Junior/senior high Principal Tom Shallenberger said his teachers worked on curriculum that day. He said he will bring to the board next month requests for changes in various curriculum areas. Shallenberger also said that the reward dinner for last year's juniors who mastered standards for the state achievement test is set for April 24.
