Chatfield school year off to a good start

With another school year back in session, Chatfield School Board members met on September 17 to see how students are approaching the new academic year. Both Principals Craig Ihrke and Randy Paulson were present to give insight.

Irhke and Paulson had coinciding messages to bring to the board that the new school year is off and running well. In these first few weeks both the elementary and high school have been getting components such as fire and bus safety refreshed in the minds of both students and staff members. Chatfield High School is once again implementing the SMART Goals program which will be fully operational by the beginning of October. Elementary Principal Craig Ihrke reiterated the importance of the 100 Book Challenge and stressed that at least one parent should attend the parent evening on September 25. This will encourage both reading at home and parents to become “at home coaches” to their children’s reading literacy development.

Community Education Director LuAnn Klevan also addressed the board Monday night on the district’s pre-school program. This year the pre-school program is offered in a newly formed, full day setting. Of the 93 pre-school age children attending Chatfield, 40 have opted to do the full day program. Klevan stated that this will help the students by creating fewer transitions for the children in addition to getting more accustomed to the school’s atmosphere. Finally, Klevan mentioned that the mission statements and objectives for the community education department will be analyzed to make sure that they are relevant and updated to current needs and goals.

Superintendent Ed Harris mentioned some financial information dealing with the district’s preliminary levy for the fiscal year 2013. It will be nearly unchanged from last year. Also, the 2012 budget is expected to come within one percent of projected expenditures. He gave recognition to Carol Lyon crediting her for all of her work on the budget.

To conclude the meeting the board hired contracts for Kate Kennedy as a high school paraprofessional. Also, contracts were approved for Pauline Schriever and Paula Jobes to share the school nurse position for this school year. Finally, Hammell Equipment had a bid accepted for the next two years for snow removal. The next meeting is set for October 15, 2012.
