Welcome and Tour
Ms. Monger, Principal of Guy Berry Intermediate School, welcomed the Board and stated that the students and staff appreciated them coming.
Several Board members reminisced about the history of Guy Berry since being built in 1939. The original building contained 10 classrooms and an auditorium. Guy Berry will still be an important part of the district even though it will not house the fourth grade students after this year.
Ms. Monger made mention of the cards that were at each Board member’s seat. The cards had been hand made by students from the art department. The cards contained drawings and interesting facts about each board member. She stated that Ms. Green’s fourth grade class did the “Welcome” bulletin board that was displayed behind them.
Ms. Monger paired each board member and other guests with two students who provided a personal tour of the building. The students then escorted the members and guests to the cafeteria where they were served lunch.
