Fillmore Central students prepare for college


Mon, Nov 3rd, 2014
Posted in Fountain Commentary

With the first quarter of the school year already gone, some Fillmore Central High School students are making plans for their futures.

At the school board meeting on October 28, Principal Heath Olstad stated juniors would be attending a college fair in Rochester October 30. Some juniors also took a PSAT test on October 14, which is good practice for when they have to take the ACT test.

A financial aid representative from St. Mary’s College will be at Fillmore Central on November 11 at 6:30 p.m. to answer any questions parents may have about financial aid. There will also be representatives from Winona State, Southeast Tech, and Rochester Community and Technical College.

The Falcon Scholar Club Awards ceremony will be held on November 19 at 9:10 a.m. Students who received a GPA of at least 3.5 their previous year will receive the award.

Conferences will be held November 6 and 11. The Scholastic Book Fair will run from November 3-11.

Special Ed. director Micki Breitsprecher updated the board on the Minnesota Department of Education’s Due Process Site Review. Surveys were sent out to general ed. teachers, special ed. teachers, and paraprofessionals regarding the special ed. services at Fillmore Central. Breitsprecher said most of the surveys have been completed, but there have been some technical difficulties with the electronic survey.

Breitsprecher spoke to the board about Paper Celebration nights. The first was held October 27 in Spring Valley. Others are scheduled in January, March, and May. These celebration nights are for staff to work on due process paperwork. It is not required but staff at Fillmore Central and Kingsland can come and go, and Breitsprecher is there to assist.
