Lanesboro students rank well in PSATs

Posted in Lanesboro Education

The Lanesboro School Board met on February 18 at 7 p.m. All board members were present.

The minutes of the January 21 meeting were reviewed and approved.

The treasurer’s report was read by Lolly Melander and approved. The current bank balance for the district is $301,771.11.

Athletic director Jody Peterson was present at the meeting to give her report to the board. Peterson said that the high school seniors have been actively asking her about scholarships. She has been helping them find information and applications, as well as directing them to look for more opportunities online.

The PSAT results came back for the 10th and 11th grades. The 10th grade was ranked at 65% compared to other 10th graders across the country, and met the benchmarks for both reading and math. The 11th grade was ranked at 82% and also met the benchmarks for reading and math.

The school has held two fire drills this year so far and will soon be having a lockdown drill, as well.

So far, 17 seniors have committed to going on the senior class trip. The class is not holding a senior fundraiser dinner for the first time this year, but have been raising money using other fundraisers, such as raffles and an ice fishing tournament.

The personnel seniority list was reviewed and approved.

A maternity leave request from band teacher Katrina Schuneman was approved for the dates of September 6-November 4, 2016. The board discussed finding someone to substitute for her during that time. It was pointed out that it can be hard to find a sub for band since that person has to be knowledgeable about all the instruments.

Dave Ruen and Jody Peterson were designated as the two representatives who are authorized to vote for the Lanesboro School district in the MSHSL.

Board member Steve Snyder said that he has received several comments about the high quality of the high school band. People attending games from the competing school districts have told him that the Lanesboro band is the best they’ve heard.

The meeting was adjourned. The next meeting will be held March 17 at 7 p.m.
