    MATTAWAN - For the fourth straight year, the Mattawan Board of Education Monday night highlighted several students celebrations, recognizing their curricular and extra curricular activities, from early elementary to high school.
    “This is my favorite board meeting of the whole year, “ said Mattawan Consolidated School District Superintendent Dr. Robin Buchler.
    A portion of the meeting showcased student presentations, including Kindness Agents from the Early Elementary School to American Sign Language and Safeties from the Later Elementary School. Also highlighted were the middle school’s Science Olympiad team and the middle school’s veteran’s celebration, as well as the high school’s  Leo Club and  the varsity boys basketball team.
    In other business, the board accepted the upcoming retirement of Randy Holler, who has  served the past 29 years as the district’s transportation supervisor.
    The board  approved two district safety bids, presented by Tony Nuismer, the district’s director of information technology, and a bid of $67,093, from Siemens for security cameras at the later elementary, middle and high schools, team room, press box and soon-to-be refurbished ECEC. The school district  had budgeted $39,200 for the project. The board also  approved a bid of $259,903 for window security film at the early and later elementary, middle and high schools. A total of $270,458 was budgeted for the project.
    Funding for both projects was previously approved by voters with the passing of a bond proposal.
    The board also went on record in support of a statewide School Funding Research Collaborative study to adequately fund public schools.
