Congratulations to Shelbyville students Ava Silva and Aubree Camp

Congratulations to Shelbyville students Ava Silva and Aubree Camp for state U.I.L. congress honors and awards. In conference AA, Aubree Camp placed 4th and Ava Silva placed 3rd and was awarded best presiding officer at an awards ceremony held at the Texas state capitol building. Congress is an individual contest in a large group setting. It models the legislative process of democracy, specifically, the United States Congress. Within this mock legislative assembly competition, contestants draft legislation (proposed laws and position statements), and they research the docket of bills and resolutions dealing with real-world social and political policies prior to the contest to prepare their speeches. At the tournament, students caucus in committees, deliver formal discourse on the merits and disadvantages of each piece of legislation and vote to pass or defeat the measures they have examined. The presiding officer is similar to the role of the speaker of the house and is elected by their peers to run the chamber of student representatives. The state congress tournament is held over a two-day period and amounts to twelve hours of speaking competition. Shelbyville Speech and Debate is coached by Emily Sowell.

Congratulations to the Joaquin Varsity Cheerleaders

Way to go Joaquin Varsity!

Center Independent School District is going to close school from Monday, January 17, 2022 until Wednesday, January 19, 2022. As with many organizations we have people who have caught COVID, the Flu, Strep and other communicable diseases. At this time, we are having a difficult time covering all of our classes.

Monday, January 17, 2022, Center ISD was scheduled to be out in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. We have decided to remain closed Tuesday and Wednesday of next week in an effort for some to get over their sickness and return to work.

Shelbyville ISD Recognizes School Board

Shelbyville ISD Recognizes School Board

 

The month of January is proclaimed School Board Recognition Month to emphasize the importance of the men and women across the state of Texas who serve on school boards.  Shelbyville I.S.D. students benefit every day from the dedication and commitment to public education of our local trustees.  Our current board members are Etola Jones, President, 12 years; Mark Bohannon, Vice-President, 8 years; Joey Lawson, Secretary, 9 years; Joe Tom Schillings, 13 years; Tim Bradshaw, 8 years;

Chris Koltonski, 6 years; and Lori Alvis, 3 years.  These men and women sit through meetings, read reports, listen to parents’ concerns, and do hard work to benefit the students and the community.  They serve without pay, giving of their time and expertise to ensure that young Texans have the skills needed for lifelong success.  These local citizens are elected by the community to make critical decisions that directly affect the future of our youth.  At this time, we say thank you to these dedicated volunteers.  We appreciate their generous sharing of time and energy.  They truly do “rise above” for our schools.  “Thank You” to the Shelbyville I.S.D.

Denning Boil Water Notice - Rescinded

The boil water notice for the Denning Water System has been rescinded. The problem has been resolved and the water is now safe to drink.

==============================================================

ORIGINAL NOTICE:

Due to electrical issues, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has required the  Denning Rural Water System  PWS  # 2030004 to notify ALL customers to boil their water prior to consumption (eg., washing hands/ face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc).  Children, seniors and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions.

To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.  The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.

In lieu of boiling, individuals may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the public water system officials will notify customers that the water is safe for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

Once the boil water notice is no longer in effect, the public water system will issue a notice to customer that rescinds the boil water notice in a manner similar to this notice.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received the notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses).  You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact Denning Rural Water System at 220 W. Columbia Street, San Augustine, Texas, 75972, or call 936-288-0489 or Charles Sharp at 936-201-5001.
