CAMDEN — Spirit Day was successful at Preble Shawnee Local Schools, according to Student Senate President Kaylie Campbell, who gave her monthly report to the PS Board of Education on Thursday, Feb. 14.

She also reported, National Honor Society is working to implement student tutors throughout the school. There is already a list of students who need tutoring and potential student tutors.

Student Senate has been discussing vaping and smoking within the school with Superintendent Matt Bishop. They are working together to limit those behaviors during the school day.

In other business, Board President Julie Singleton suggested looking into exits and entrances into Camden Primary School.

“The School Resource Officer (SRO) is involved in exiting at West Elkton and I wonder if we have to have something like that, because it really is a safety hazard. We have the two lanes, one coming in and one going out and they are both getting blocked with people coming in,” she said.

“So we have no plan of exit. It is disturbing, every time we go in there, there is no way of getting out of there. I don’t know if we should involve the Resource Officer a little more at that point. We can’t expect anybody to sit there and direct traffic.”

The board also approved the following donations:

•$100 donation from Liberty Partridge, M.D.

•$255 donation from Eickelberger – Go Fund Me ($60 cash.)

•$100 donation from Frederick and Darlene Bendel – Camden Lunch Accounts.

•$1,200 donation for Tina Fuchs Wanner Memorial Scholarship.
