Arbon Valley – The Best Place on Earth
Arbon Valley – The Best Place on Earth Arbon Valley has gone through changes over the past 100 years just like any town has.  However, if you see an old photo of your great-grandpa standing on a street with his field behind him, chances are you could pick out that spot and it would look exactly the same today.  This town is full of rich history as well as kind and honest people.
“Have you ever been down to Arbon Valley ?
I spend a lot of time there in my mind.
And if God doesn’t live in Arbon Valley,
I’ll bet that’s where he spends most of his time.”

The security camera at the front door was discussed.  When a visitor comes to the door all you can really see is the top of their head. Debbie will contact Kade Lusk to see if he is able to adjust the security camera to get a better view of the visitor and if they could view some of the bus loading and unloading area. If not, they will look into getting a camera to see the bus loading and unloading and maybe some of the parking area.

We have one student going to speech therapy two days a week.  The school will pay for these services this year.  If services are needed next school year, we will look into applying for some help with funding from the State Department.

Melinda will contact Jason Bransford to set up doing another teacher observation and a final evaluation before the end of the school year.

Purchasing a new bus was tabled until the board hears back from Todd and Julie Fitch.
