FREDERICKTOWN — The Fredericktown Board of Education on Tuesday honored out-going board member Betty Weller for her eight years of faithful service. Superintendent Matt Chrispin said everyone has benefited from her insight and wisdom and from her teaching perspective (Weller taught in the district for 30 years). Treasurer Pat Miller thanks Weller for all her support, as did representatives of the staff associations, administrators and her fellow board members.

As Chrispin presented a plaque of appreciation to Weller, he proclaimed that Dec. 11 (today) will be Betty Weller Day in the Fredericktown public schools.

Weller said she enjoyed her time on the board, interacting with teachers, staff and students as well as other board members.

“It’s really been great,” she said. “I believe the greatest profession is teaching, but being on the board is good, too.”

Following reports by committee members and principals, Chrispin told the board the School Connect parent notification system is working well. It performed as expected when school was closed Friday and for Tuesday’s delay.
