At this week’s Unit 2 School Board meeting, the board set the graduation date for Greenville Junior High on June 2nd. Junior high graduation for Pocahontas and Sorento will be June 3rd.
The board’s February financial report showed the district receiving a little over $700,000 in payments. Superintendent Jeff Strieker reported the state still owes around $500,000.
Sorento Principal Bill Carpenter approached the board with the request that Sorento girls interested in basketball next year be able to co-op with the Pocahontas girls’ basketball team, a move he said would make more economic sense. The request was approved with a 7-0 vote.
