Bristol Area Lions hear from Bristol Consolidated School Principal 10/18/2019

Posted by DS in meetings, speakers.

Bristol Area Lion David Kolodin thanks Bristol Consolidated School Principal Jennifer Ribeiro for her talk and presents her with a donation for the completion of the girls softball field.

Bristol Consolidated School Principal Jennifer Ribeiro addressed the Bristol Area Lions Club on Monday, Sept. 16. Ribeiro has been the school principal for 12 years and outlined her duties and responsibilities. She reports to A.O.S. 93 Superintendent Craig Jorgensen who is responsible for Bristol, South Bristol, Great Salt Bay, Nobleboro, and Jefferson schools.

Ribeiro is responsible for the school complying with government regulations, hiring and managing staff and their development, as well as coordinating curriculum. In cases of teacher, student, parent disagreements she is the arbitrator.

Bristol is the only A.O.S. 93 school with a Pre-K program which is open only to Bristol residents. Overall school population has increased from 190 last year to 197 as Bristol becomes recognized as a desirable place to live and raise a family.

Regarding the cost of the Girls Softball field, since the school parking lot project ended up costing less than anticipated, there was a surplus in the capital reserve fund that was used for the initial clearing of the site. Otherwise no tax payer funds have been expended for the construction of the girls softball field with the bulk of the cost covered by grants, and major gifts from individuals in the community. The field is expected to be completed in 2020 with the first game in 2021. It will also be utilized by the Little League.

In an earlier e-mail request, the club voted unanimously to donate $500 to the completion of the field. If you wish to contribute, checks should be made payable to the Bristol School Boosters mailed to the Bristol Consolidated School, 2153 Bristol Road, Pemaquid, ME 04558.

A moment of silence was held in memory of former member Steve Lord who for many years collected bottles and cans for the Lions at his Huddle Road redemption center to benefit the Bristol Area Lions Eye Fund.

The next meeting of the Bristol Area Lions will be on Monday, Oct. 7 at 6 p.m. at the Willing Workers Hall in New Harbor. The speaker will be the President of Inn Along the Way, Sherrie Flint. To make dinner reservations for that meeting, call John Janell at 563-7402.
