The North Harrison Board of School Trustees had a light meeting Tuesday (March 11), which was dominated by acceptance of donations and some personnel decisions.
The board tabled accepting a donation of $11,498 (in the form of a grant) from the Harrison County Community Foundation to purchase a Yamaha Piano Lab at the middle school.
The amount in the form of a donation ($11,498) required a match from the board.
North Harrison Middle School choral teacher John Malone applied for a grant for this a year ago, and the board approved the initial application for the grant a year ago, with the knowledge that a match was required.
North Harrison Middle School principal Karen Lambertus said she thought the lab would be an asset to the music program at North Harrison.
“It’s just a way to encourage the students to enjoy the arts more,” she said.
In the set up as proposed, the teacher would be able to listen to each student from a central control as they practice. Each student would have their own individual head phones.

    A crowd of more than 800 parents filed into the New Albany High School auditorium Monday, most wishing to express concern over the school corporation's attempt at erasing a $6.6 million budget shortfall.
    The proposal, released late last week, includes closing four elementary schools, Children's Academy of New Albany, Pine View, Silver Street and Galena Elementary schools.
    Other cuts in the plan include 78 non-teaching jobs and assigning fifth graders from elementary to middle schools.
    School Superintendent Bruce Hibbard assured those in attendance that the changes would not affect academics in the school corporation.
    “We will still have a rich academic (environment),” he said.
    A Galena parent, Mindy Johnson, didn't agree.
    “I'm afraid it sends a message that hard work, commitment to excellence does not matter,” she said.
