HAMPTON -- Hampton Elementary School will be getting a makeover this summer, thanks to an Illinois maintenance grant worth $30,000.|
Superintendent Tom Berg informed the school board on Monday that the matching grant will be used to paint most of the classrooms, replace carpet in the the library and computer lab, replace one tile floor and purchase new stage curtains. The work is expected to be completed by summer's end.
Mr. Berg also announced that the ISAT results were back, with Hampton students ranking in the 94 percent range. Mr. Berg noted that this was the fourth consecutive year the school achieved results in the 90 percent range.
"We're happy with the news, and congrats to all the students, parents and teachers," Mr. Berg stated.
In other action, the board approved Lindsay Schell to be the junior high math teacher, and Jordan Hohenboken as the special education teacher. The amended budget was approved, as was the purchase of the Super Kids Reading Program for $5,000. The program will be expanded from kindergarten to first grade.
The meeting was also the first for recently appointed member Joe Jordan, who replaced Steve Kautz last month. Mr. Jordan previously served on the Hampton Board of Education from 1997 to 2007.
