The Mannford Reporter usually publishes a detailed list of the schools’ most interesting and remarkable activities and achievements under the headline “Did You Know.” Ralph Osborn, an auditor, reported no findings in the 2014-2015 fiscal school year audit. Besides that, the Board of Education approved fundraising for the Choir to have a pancake dinner at McDonalds.

Recently, the 2016-2017 contract with the studio was accepted upon the recommendation of Dr. Waldvogel. Also, the schools’ board accepted the resignation of Amy Pennick, who was a librarian aide. A new Pre-K teacher, Tori McCullough, was employed upon recommendation of the schools’ superintendent. The decisions made by the Board of Education in February came to pass in March of this year.
