Poth Page: Upcoming school year almost upon us
Summer is breezing by very quickly. There will be a lot of changes at Poth this fall. In the August article, I will tell you about all the new teachers and staff, changes in policies, and other need-to-know information. This month we must say “goodbye” to a few friends that have an opportunity to move down the road.
In previous Wilson County News editions, we have said goodbye to our “retirees.” However, we have others that are leaving, too. We will miss coach and teacher Judy Scheffler, Coach Chase Sanford, Coach Fred Radske, teacher Laurie Sekula, and our cafeteria cashier, Lupe Sanchez. In addition, last week, elementary Principal Carolina Gonzales told us she has accepted a job in the big city. To all of these wonderful ladies and gentlemen, you will be missed. We wish nothing but the best for each of you and your families.
This week is football and volleyball camps. If you are driving in Poth, be on the lookout for worn-out young people taking a break by walking to Circle G for refreshments. Hats off to Heather Rocha, recent graduate, for hitting a three-run homer in the Texas State Girls Coaching Association All Star Game. Yes, it went over the fence! Also hats off to Avery Acker, also a recent graduate, who was selected by the coaches association as the MVP in volleyball. This is a back-to-back honor for Poth students, as Tara Dunn was the MVP in 2011.
High school registration will begin Tuesday, Aug. 14, for seniors from 9-11 a.m., and 1-3 p.m. for juniors. Sophomores will be from 9-11 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 15, and new students from 1-3 p.m. Freshman Camp will be held Thursday, Aug. 16, from 8 a.m. to noon. Check the website for times for the younger campuses. Offices are closed until Thursday, Aug. 2.
Andy Peters is the superintendent of the Poth Independent School District.
