When the Paris Independent School District board of trustees meets Monday, board members will receive recognition for their service.

Students are scheduled to thank the trustees publicly at the meeting and present them with small gifts of appreciation in honor of school board appreciation month. The theme for this year is “Hearts and Hands for Kids.”

Superintendent Paul Jones invited the public to also thank the board.

“We salute the public servants of the Paris ISD whose dedication and civic responsibility enables our students to achieve full potential and become productive, responsible citizens,” he said. “Putting in long hours and working for no pay, these dedicated public servants set high expectations for student achievement and support successful teaching and learning. Paris ISD trustees empower students with the knowledge and skills they need to become productive, responsible citizens and help our diverse student and staff population progress successfully into an ever changing and globally diverse world.”

Current board members are: President George Fisher, Vice President Dr. Bert Strom, Secretary Becki Norment, Tracy Bawcum, Dale Henry, Regina Ellis Williams and Jenny Wilson.

Monday’s agenda also includes:

  • Recognition of the middle and junior high school robotics teams.
  • A presentation of the district improvement plan.
  • Reports from the business manager and superintendent.
