The first semester activities of the Recreational/After-School/Doorway program (RAD) came to an end Thursday, and RAD coordinator Dianne Gould said the first half-year of the program was a success.
Mondays through Thursdays, throughout the entire semester, Craig Intermediate school students had the opportunity to get academic help, learn to play the guitar, investigate crimes and learn sign language courtesy of RAD.
Volunteers from several facets of the community donated their time to teach the classes and provide homework help.
At next Monday’s Moffat County Board of Education meeting, Gould will give a RAD report for board and community members.
“I’m going to show a slide presentation on what the kids have been doing,” she said. “It’s just an update and a thank you to the school board for its support.”
Planning has already begun for second semester activities.
“We start in February with all new activities and we need all kinds of volunteers for that,” she said.
Also at Monday night’s meeting, a presentation will be given by the Craig Chamber of Commerce.
Vicki Duncan, secretary to the superintendent, said the Chamber’s education committee wants to discuss its partnership with the school district.
“They want to explain what the committee is about and how the Chamber might become more involved with the school district,” she said.
In other business Monday night, the board will hear a presentation by East Elementary principal Guy Gladden, whose school is the month’s spotlight school. Gladden said he plans to take several pictures at East Elementary and present a slide show on what happens throughout the day at East.
“I’m really proud of what we do here everyday, and just want to take pictures of the regular stuff,” he said.
In other business:
Boys and girls cross country team state qualifiers will be recognized.
District 8 honor band members will be recognized.
The board will adjourn to executive session to discuss personnel issues regarding the superintendent search.
