MULBERRY GROVE UNIT 1 ACCOMPLISHMENTS RECOGNIZED
At the recent Mulberry Grove Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Mike Gauch presented highlights of board and school accomplishments worthy of celebration. Over the past four years, fund balances have remained stable even with an 11% reduction in general state aid and underfunded categorical payments while still providing salary increases. The current tax rate is lower than it was four years ago and more than $2 million in building improvements have been realized. New programs such as PBIS, RTI, Kid’s College, and Study Island have been implemented with no state funding. These accomplishments have been made with less revenue from the state and from local taxpayers while maintaining and improving programs and offerings to the children of our community whom we serve. The Mulberry Grove Board of Education, administration, staff, parents, students, and community continue to work together with the common goal of maintaining a quality, well-rounded, learning environment for our students.
CALL JULIE BEFORE YOU DIG
Spring is here and many people are beginning outdoor projects that require digging. Leigh Morris from Ameren Illinois said before you dig, call "JULIE" by dialing 8-1-1, two business days before you plan to dig. Officials will come out and mark any underground utility lines the area where you plan to dig. So if you are building a new deck, planting a tree, or installing a post for a new mailbox, be sure to call JULIE. A poorly placed hole could damage a line, cause personal injury or even death.
