Senate voucher scheme holds school funding hostage

A key school-finance bill passed by the Texas House was hijacked last week by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and some members of the Texas Senate intent on passing a scheme for private-school vouchers.

“These Texas senators, under the approving eye of the lieutenant governor, are playing politics with the kids of our state by taking one of the most beneficial education bills in recent history and poisoning it with vouchers that would instead fund private schools with no accountability to taxpayers,” said Louis Malfaro, Texas AFT president.

Silsbee student places sixth in literary criticism

By Meagan Moore

A Silsbee High School student placed sixth in state at the UIL competition for Literary Criticism. She has worked hard to achieve many goals throughout her years participating in UIL competitions.

Sarah Harper grew up in Silsbee and started participating in UIL as soon as it was offered. In second grade, she worked with Ms. Sapp in creative writing. That far back, Harper can only remember that she did well in creative writing, but she doesn’t fully remember what awards she won.

Silsbee Garden Club unites with SISD

The Silsbee Garden Club wanted to do something special for its community, so one of the things they decided was to donate trees to the schools that wanted a tree for Arbor Day. After contacting the school and getting approval, a teacher each from Silsbee Middle School and Silsbee High School contacted Garden Club secretary Joy Martindale to inform her the type of trees they would like planted.

The Garden Club committee that was appointed for this task included Cynthia Roberts, Judy Erdman, Patsy Gerngross, Joy Martindale and Margaret Fox. The Silsbee Garden Club donated a river birch tree to the Silsbee Middle School and a pecan tree to the Silsbee High School. The trees were planted on Arbor Day — Friday, April 28.

Riedinger running for Silsbee ISD

My name is Melissa Riedinger, and I am currently running for Position 2 of the Silsbee ISD School Board.

I am running for school board because I believe that each and every child living within Silsbee school district should be given the highest quality of education possible. Every individual child deserves the opportunity to learn and grow to the highest extent in a quality school that individualizes teaching to the child rather than standards.

Ferguson throws hat in for SISD board spot

My name is Derrell “D.J.” Ferguson, and I am announcing my candidacy for the the Silsbee Independent School District Board of Trustees Place 1. I am blessed beyond measure that God put this opportunity in front of me.

You never realize how big Silsbee really is until you try to stop by as many homes as you possibly can in an effort to let people know your views. The conversations always seem to start out with, “What makes you want to do this?” My answer is simple.
