The Lanesville Community School Corp. Board of Trustees met last Tuesday at the Carl Uesseler Corporation Office, where the resignation of Mark Lambertus, the Lanesville Junior-Senior High School assistant principal and athletic director, was accepted.
“Mark has put in a lot of good work over the years with us, and he really cares about this community,” said Superintendent Steve Morris when presenting Lambertus’ resignation to the board. “We hate to see him go but can only wish him the best.”
Lambertus’ retirement will be effective at the end of the 2019-20 school year.
During reports, Lisa Hammond, principal of Lanesville Elementary School, discussed the recent events and upcoming plans for the school. She touched on the success of the 100th day of school activities, where students were encouraged to come to class dressed around the theme of “100.” She also noted that on March 5 there will be a kindergarten meet-and-greet event, where parents will have a chance to get to know the teachers and find out more information.
“We currently have 49 kindergarten kids enrolled,” Hammond said. “It is shaping up to be a good year, and we are excited to have a new batch of kids walk through the doors.”
The board also unanimously agreed to accept an anonymous donation of a new gymnasium floor tarp with a rack.
The next board meeting is set for Tuesday, March 17, at 6 p.m. at the corporation office.
