Lanesboro School District gets ready for prom


Fri, Mar 21st, 2008
Posted in Education

It must be spring. The Lanesboro school board meeting on Thursday, March 20, was all about the upcoming prom on May 3rd.

So far, 12 adults from the community have agreed to chaperone the dance and one off duty police officer will be present as well to keep the event safe so all those attending can enjoy a music and fun filled evening.

Outdoor pictures will be taken at the Lanesboro Dam at 4:30 p.m. by Ross Himlie Photography. The prom goers will have dinner at the Branding Iron in Preston following photo taking, then the Grand March will offer parents and community a chance to see their youth at their best, from 9:00 - 9:30 p.m.

Parents and their cameras will leave at 9:30 p.m. and the doors will be locked during the dance until 12 midnight. The post dance party will be held at the community center.

Grants received

• A grant proposal was approved for a Positive Behavior Initiative program for students in grades 7-12. Its focus is Quality Education= Quality Discipline.

• A College Readiness Awareness grant was approved that targets 9th grade students. Board members agreed that focus on students at that level, rather than waiting for 11th and 12th grade, will be beneficial.

Other Business

• The Lanesboro School choir received a superior rating in a large group conference on March 17th and the board wishes to recognize and congratulate them for that achievement.

• In discussion of spring sports, the board accepted the addition of another coaching assistant whose salary will be paid by dividing the salaries of the coaching staff.

• The next regular meeting of the Lanesboro school board will be on April 17th but will be moved to 6pm to allow board members to attend the FFA Banquet which is held the same evening.

The May meeting will be moved from the 15th to the 13th due to scheduling conflicts among key board members.
