Redistricting Information is the Main Subject at R-IV School Board Meeting

Many things were covered at the Shelby County R-IV School Board meeting regarding the possible split of the district. The meeting was held on Wednesday, June 13 in the middle school library.
   R-IV Superintendent Tim Maddex went over information he and board members Aaron Gaines, Jarrell Foreman and Jim Foster received during a recent visit with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in Jefferson City.
   Maddex gave the board some Prop. 1 information (which appeared in the Shelbina Weekly in a previous issue).
   Shelbina Elementary Principal Katie Stueve said she really didn’t think about the elementary students as Shelbina and Clarence. “We had a summer school together, we’ve had both Shelbina and Clarence students together. We know our students and we want our students to be together,” she said.
   Clarence Elementary Principal Kelly Wheelan said that they are a team whether they are at Clarence, Shelbina, the middle school or the high school.
   Windsor said this is the best school system he has been at in 25 years. “This is a top shelf school system, and right now my heart is racing because there is so much I want to say. This is a great place to be,” Windsor said.
   He added that he wholeheartedly stands by everything the document said, and he believes it with all of his heart. “It’s a kid business, and business is good.” Windsor talked about extra hours coaches, teachers and secretaries put in for the kids in the district.
   The people in this system who draw a small check, they are in it for the kids. Every single day. And the getting kicked around, and the stuff that’s going on is embarrassing to what they believe in. Sitting back and getting kicked in the stomach and watching our teachers get kicked in the stomach and everybody else in our district...shame on us, shame on me for being weakened, and not standing up before this, because they deserve more than silence,” Windsor added.

Several people attended the first annual Camp Abilities that was held at Camp Jo-Ota on June 9. The camp was for people ages five and up.

The first annual Camp Abilities was held at Camp Jo-Ota in Clarence on June 9, 2018, from 8 am to 5 pm. This camp was a day camp for individuals with disabilities ages 5 years old and up. This is the first camp for individuals with disabilities in the area. We had campers from Columbia, LaGrange, Canton, Palmyra, Macon, Clarence, Shelbina, Monroe City, and Moberly to name a few. The 53 campers arrived that morning to be paired with one of the 117 volunteers for the day as their Buddy. The superhero theme came complete with life sized Batman and Superman, along with a photo booth. The campers and buddies enjoyed a full day of great food, many super crafts including sensory bottles, shields, handprint superheroes, many sensory activities, fishing, swimming and paddleboats along with other water activities and a visit from the National Guard and a Humvee.
