N/GRV School Board Notes
January 17, 2019
The Naselle-Grays River Valley School District Board of Directors met for its monthly meeting on Tuesday in the Middle School Commons.
Before beginning the bulk of its agenda items, the board nominated Chuck Hendrickson to continue as board chair and Nick Nikkila to continue as vice-chair.
In personnel matters, the board approved the hire of A.J. Smith, assistant baseball coach.
In other matters of business, the board approved student out of District travel for a Close-Up sponsored trip to Washtington D.C. in March.
The board conducted a first read of policy 3141, non-resident students.
Teacher Mrs. Ford and some of her students shared the mini-boat project they have been working on in conjunction with the Columbia River Maritime Museum.
For this project, students constructed boats that were released in Japan and are being tracked by Global Positioning Systems (GPS) as the boats travel across the Pacific Ocean. It is projected that the mini-boats will arrive on the west coast, some time in the next ten months. Students from Naselle-Grays River partnered with the Choshi Second Junior High School in Japan for the project.
Principal Quinn Donlon provided an overview for the Board of the recent STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) night that saw over 30 community members and businesses sharing their skills and activities in various STEM fields, careers and professions.
The next school board meeting will be Feb. 19 in the Middle School Commons, beginning at 6:30 p.m.
