Complete school board results. -- Ted 1am Tuesday 6/26/2012
The Collinsville School Board approved the purchase of the church property just north of the football field for $315,000 at their June 25th, 2012 meeting. The school administration offices (ESC) will be relocated there by late October if all goes according to plan. The current ESC location (leased from Bank of the Lakes since 1993 starting with just 5 people) has been out-grown with 13 school employees. The gymnasium and additional parking adjacent to Sallee Field are additional advantages. The former Miracles of Faith Church at 19th and Maple location combined with Into All The World Church and is now Current Church on the east side of Collinsville.

FYI: The further behind I get, the more stubborn I get. For the person who has left a note on my door twice for me to call them to get info for a yard sale ad (rather than just leaving the actual ad text & $5) ... I won't be calling. This is primarily an internet business and I get the majority of info from email. If you don't have email, you can leave written info via mail or the mail slot. A telephone call is the least accurate way to conduct this business. -- Frequently Asked Questions (#8, #11, #12) -- Ted Wright -- 5/31/2012
