There was a lot of discussion about the damage sustained from the tornado that hit South Shelby High School and Middle School during the Shelby County R-IV School Board took place on Wednesday, March 8 in the Middle School Library.
   Public Comment
   Shelby County R-IV Superintendent Tim Maddex spoke during the public comment portion of the meeting. He expressed his appreciation to everyone in the community who helped get the school ready for classes Wednesday. “I want to thank everybody for their support the last couple of days. We take for granted the communities we live in and sometimes forget about that until you have something like yesterday (last week’s tornado). We had probably 25 to 30 people out here and probably close to 100 more called and asked if they could help,” Maddex said.
   Laura Greenwell also spoke and commended Maddex on his “calm, clear leadership, and how he represented South Shelby well during television interviews.” She talked about the job he did organizing and regrouping after the tornado hit the school.
   Principals Reports
   Clarence Elementary Principal Kelly Williams reported that representatives from Clarence and Shelbina talked about goals for the Leader in Me program for next year.
   She said third grade through fifth grade students traveled to Mark Twain’s home in Florida. She said they had a great time. This was made available by a grant written by Mrs. Crane.
   They will take another field trip to North Shelby for Conservation. That will include grades 1-5.
   They will be looking at results of the Evaluate program.
   Williams mentioned the high school Special Education program, selling cotton candy.
   Clarence’s parent group were fixing a meal last Friday to raise money. She also mentioned that she and Shelbina Elementary Principal Katie Stueve would be attending a conference this week.
   Shelbina Elementary Principal Katie Stueve reported that a new slide was installed on the playground. She said they had a lot of help and it went up quickly.
   She mentioned the sixth habit, Synergize, from the Leader in Me program which was introduced by the seventh grade students.
   Stueve said the Kindergarten and Preschool screenings are coming up. They have 38 students signed up at this point. She said that number will probably go up.
