Placeholder Image
Students from Lathrop Elementary School will be recognized for their efforts as published writers at Tuesday’s Manteca Unified school board meeting.

The 128-page book entitled “Warriors Rock” was a project of third-grade teacher Genevieve Beltran. The youngsters involved had a chance to display their poems, stories and other forms of writing.

The book was made possible by materials donated by Friedens Publishing Company.

Students participating in the project received copies of the book.

The recognition will take place early on during 7 p.m. open session as part of Superintendent Jason Messer’s report.

The meeting will be held in the MUSD administration building, 2271 W. Louise Ave.
In other agenda items:

•The board will consider, discuss and take action on the proposed budget for the 2010-2011 school year.

•Trustees are scheduled to talk about the parking lot situation at French Camp School.

•The board will also consider adopting the calendar for the 2010-2011 school year.

•Several public hearings are scheduled, including the Manteca Educators Association’s proposal for the Adult School master program for the 2009-2010 fiscal year, MUSD’s Adult School master agreement for the 2009-2010 fiscal year, and disclosure of the proposed agreement between the California School Employees Association Chapter 50 and MUSD for the 2009 through 2012 school years.
