On May 15, the residents of the Fabius-Pompey School District approved the proposed School Budget for the 2018-2019 school year. Additionally there was voter approval for the bus resolution and the capital project earmarked for school safety improvements. Mr. Neugebauer and Mr. Heselden were re-elected to three-year terms on the Board. The District would also like to extend a warm welcome to the newest member of the Board of Education, Mrs. Carlena Wallace. Congratulations to all three Board members. On behalf of the Board as well as the School District, thank you for voting and for your continued support.
After eighteen years of serving as a member of the Fabius-Pompey Board of Education, Mrs. Maryam Wasmund has made the decision to step down. She will continue to represent the Fabius-Pompey, Tully and LaFayette School Boards as a member of the Onondaga-Madison-Cortland Counties Board of Cooperative Services Board of Education. During the time that Mrs. Wasmund has served on the School Board, there have been unprecedented changes in public education initiated from both the state and national levels. New testing requirements, teacher and administrative accountability measures, shortages in school funding and changing society expectations regarding the role of public schools have all been challenges she, as a member of the Board, has faced. During these challenges, she has always remained focused and worked hard to make sure Fabius-Pompey continued to evolve toward its full potential. Mrs. Wasmund has been the consistent voice of optimism and her pride in her community is inspiring. She has looked for compromise and has been able to see common ground in situations that would otherwise have become polarizing. Her vision of school and community working in unison has provided all of us with a sense of common purpose and optimism. I would like to thank Maryam for her eighteen years of dedicated service as a Board Member and for providing the school district with her wisdom, compassion and energy.
The Class of 2018 will graduate on Friday, June 22. The excitement is building among seniors as they eagerly await the opportunity to celebrate the success of the past thirteen years of school and take the next steps toward their future. In the upcoming months, there will be opportunities to acknowledge the success of all the students through awards ceremonies, athletic contests, concerts and other events. Regardless of whether you have children in school or not, I invite you to attend any of the opportunities designed to display the talents and accomplishments of the students.
