The first week of Terry Summer School program was a definite splash! The week’s theme was “Splash Into Summer” and included a mini Montana History Unit, Montana Agriculture and Native American Study. A splash of academics were also incorporated into the week. Students studied books and authors and began Read Naturally, a computer based reading program. Daily oral and silent reading was also encouraged.
My last column started with, “This May during the ‘regular’ school election time, the district will run a levy for the general budget. The levy will be for about $20,751.13 or 6.08 mills. The exact amount will not be known until the legislature finishes up its business this year.”
With a 35 percent showing of the county’s registered 902 voters, ballots cast overwhelmingly supported the $140,000 special school mill levy. Only 65 of the 315 votes opposed the measure, with 19 votes tallied as void. Those void votes included absentee ballots that were not returned or ballots that were miss-marked.
