This week we wrap up another great school year for the Salado Independent School District. The following are the remaining events for this school year:
Congratulations to Salado High School eleventh grade student Zack Shaver and Salado High School science teacher Katy Leiskau for being recognized by Congressman John R. ‘Judge’ Carter from our Texas Congressional District 31. Zack was recognized as a “Carter A-Lister” and Katy Leiskau was recognized as a Carter Educator.
Thank you to Rodney Bell and Melanie Kirchmeier for their years of service to our students, school district, and community as school board members. Rodney served for ten years (from 2008 through 2018) and Melanie served for six years (from 2012 through 2018). Their leadership and support have contributed to a lot of the many successes that our students and our school district have accomplished during those years.
On behalf of the Salado Independent School District, I want to thank our community for demonstrating its support of our students, staff and schools by approving the Salado ISD Bond Election.
The Salado ISD Bond Election Day is this Saturday, May 5. Voting will take place at the Salado Civic Center (Salado ISD Administration Building) from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
On February 12, the Salado ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to call a bond election to be held on May 5, 2018.
Early voting for the May 5, 2018 Salado ISD bond election will begin this coming Monday, April 23.
The Salado Rotary Club is a strong supporter of our school district. The Rotary Club provides scholarships for our graduating seniors.
In February 2017, four teachers from Salado Intermediate School (Corey Baird, Colleen Gilchrest, Darcy Madsen, and Laura Tomlin) attended the Space Exploration Educators Conference (SEEC) at Johnson Space Center in Houston. They learned of an opportunity through ARISS, Amateur Radio on the International Space Station, in which students could have a live question and answer session with an astronaut aboard the ISS. A proposal, including a technical and education plan, was submitted in April 2017. By mid-June, ARISS announced that the Salado Intermediate School (SIS) was one of thirteen organizations in the United States that would make contact with the International Space Station in the spring of 2018.
Next Thursday, April 5, is the final day to register in order to be eligible to vote in the May 5 Salado ISD bond election.
