District name will be ‘Newman-Crows Landing’

At last the new school district has a name. It will be called the “Newman-Crows Landing Unified School District”.

The board off trustees chose the name Monday night at their second meeting since the deunification election. The vote was 4-0 with Mrs. Josephine Williams not voting.

After the vote Mrs. Williams said she did not vote because she knew the other four members favored the “Newman Crows Landing” name over  “Orestimba Unified School District,” her choice.

 

Auditorium renovation would cost plenty 

Monday night the Newman-Crows Landing Unified School District board of trustees heard an architect give a rough estimate of $150,000 or more to renovate the old Orestimba High School Auditorium.

Kenneth Kasestner of Modesto has looked at the auditorium without making a thorough inspection and told the trustees of his findings so they could decide whether or not to go ahead with the idea of renovating the auditorium. He also told the board that a structural inspection to find out what repairs would be needed would cost in the neighborhood of $1,000. He agreed to come up with a firm figure and submit it to the board in writing at the next meeting. The board will then decide whether or not authorize an inspection.
