Contract extensions for two school principals have been authorized for the Princeton R-5 Board of Education. Elementary Principal Angie Ormsby and High School Principal Dana Seymour would be under contract for the next two school years.

Salaries for the next academic year are to be determined later. Also following an executive session last evening, the Princeton school board offered an elementary teaching contract to Slade Kenagy and an extra duty golf assignment to Justin Collins.

The Princeton board accepted resignations of two elementary teachers – Ranae Shahan and Gina Mossburg – effective at the end of the current school year.

Approval was given to amending the school year calendar to move parent teacher conferences at Princeton to March 14th instead of on February 20th. Five makeup days of school have been scheduled at Princeton. Classes will be held February 21st, April 17th, 22nd, and 23rd as well as May 23rd—which is, for now, the final day.

The board approved a request from Princeton seniors to travel to Wisconsin Dells for their senior class trip.

Approval was given to next year's calendar with Princeton beginning classes August 20th. The new calendar calls for elimination of early out Wednesdays for staff professional development. It includes 169 student attendance days at Princeton.

Out of district student tuition was set at 61 hundred and 31 dollars for next year.

Approval was given to the guidance program and school assessment plan.

Two Princeton students—Joshua Schoonover and Elizabeth Miller—are to be at the state capitol Wednesday, February 19, as part of Missouri History Day. They will be accompanied by instructor Maureen Funk.

Instructor Beth Boxley has been accepted to attend the Truman Presidential Library institute for one week this summer. The focus will be equal rights. It's reported that media specialists from several presidential libraries will discuss their archives.

Mercer county spelling bee is tomorrow (Wednesday) morning at 9 o'clock in the Princeton elementary school gym.

The pep band from Princeton is scheduled to perform March 13th at the high school basketball state tournament in Columbia. It also was reported that each of the fall sports teams and cheer squads at Princeton have been recognized for outstanding achievement by the Missouri state high school activities association.

A fund raiser involving the Princeton student council generated 986 dollars to benefit childhood cancer. Money was raised in conjunction with Princeton and Gallatin basketball games. The local effort is focused on16 year old Patrick McBroom of Gallatin who's described as battling cancer for a third time. Also, a geometry class made a “Princeton quilt” that raised 201 dollars for the family. (Instead of “pink out,” the “yellow” out games are designed to increase awareness of childhood cancer)
