MARYSVILLE – Four students were honored Monday at the Marysville school board meeting as Indigenous Education Students of the Month.

Second-grader Ily Enick loves science and is a whiz at technology. He and his mom have worked hard to get him into some general education classes.

Fifth-grader Tessalyn Napeahi was called a quiet leader.

Eighth-grader Sebastian Gomez was called honest, open-minded, a self-starter and a role model.

Marysville-Pilchuck High School student Imagine Moses has a 3.5 grade point average and played varsity basketball. She also volunteers at Marysville Middle School track meets.

School board president Pete Lundberg said the students can’t do it alone.

“They can’t do it without family and teachers,” he said.

Also at the meeting:

•SEIU members asked that in negotiations they receive compensation to not only attract but keep employees. They are also interested in professional development and health and safety.

•The Marysville Kiwanis Club asked that their Beer Garden be moved onto Asbury Field, instead of being in the street. They feel they can make more money for scholarships that way, and they have support from community leaders.

•Board member Chris Nation said two bills in the state legislature are important to this community. One is on graduation requirements for students in Pathways programs. The other is to address the teacher shortage and students of color.

•Under Gifts to the District, $14,000 was donated to Marshall Elementary for playground improvements. Also, $1,000 was donated to Cedarcrest Middle School to pay negative balances for free and reduced food service accounts.
