Marthasville News

(Warren County Record Story)

Students at Marthasville Elementary School are taking on a challenge to help send two veterans on an upcoming Honor Flight.

Honor Flight is a nonprofit program designed to send as many veterans as possible to Washington, D.C., free of charge, to visit national war memorials honoring their service during World War II, the Korean and Vietnam wars.

Veterans are offered the trips and tours which are paid for through donations.

Marthasville Elementary Counselor Cindy Speer explained the opportunity students have to help veterans participate in Honor Flight during the recent Veterans Day assembly.

Speer said the original goal is to raise $500, but she would like to shoot for $1,000. As part of the students’ Positive Behavior Support program, they will be able to choose Honor Flight instead of a behavior reward.

When a student shows good behavior, Speer said they earn tickets that can be spent at the school store. She said the tickets are worth about 10 cents each. She is encouraging the 200 students at Marthasville Elementary to donate 25 tickets each in lieu of purchasing something for themselves.

The community also is encouraged to donate to the program.

Filing for the Washington Board of Education will open at 8 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 13.

The filing period will close Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2017, at 5 p.m.

There will be three open seats. Board members Scott Byrne, Susan Thatcher and Rebecca Voelkerding terms will all be up.

Byrne has been on the board since 2008. Thatcher and Voelkerding were both elected in 2014.

Board members are elected to three-year terms.

Candidates should register in Julie Bell’s office on the second floor of the Washington School District administration building at 220 Locust St. in Washington.

Regular filing hours following the opening day will be on weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The district will be closed for winter break from the close of business Thursday, Dec. 22, through Friday, Dec. 30. Offices will reopen at 7:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 2.

Board member qualifications include:

All candidates must be at least 24 years of age, a U.S. citizen and a resident taxpayer of the district, and have resided in Missouri for one year preceding their election.

Candidates cannot be delinquent in the payment of any state income taxes, personal property taxes, municipal taxes or real property taxes on stated residence.

They also cannot be a registered sex offender, or found guilty or pled guilty to a felony under Missouri law.

Additionally, candidates cannot be convicted or pled guilty to a felony or misdemeanor under federal law.

Candidates must file all required campaign disclosure reports with the Missouri Ethics Commission, when applicable, for all previous elections in which they were candidates.

About the Board

The seven-member board of education serves as the governing body for the school district.

The school board sets district policies, selects the superintendent of schools, adopts the annual budget and determines the tax rate.

No election for the school board was held this past April since only the two incumbents filed for the two open seats.

The school board always holds a reorganization meeting in April following the election. New school board members are sworn in at that time for their new three-year terms.
