Fillmore Central to bring back Cross Country

Fri, Jun 7th, 2013
Posted in Fountain Education

The last time Fillmore Central had students involved in Cross Country was 2008-2009. At that time, there was only one student participating.

Recently, nine students expressed interest in starting the program again, which would be shared with Lanesboro Schools. Athletic Director Chris Mensink has spoken with Lanesboro, and they are willing to share the program again. The board approved a resolution to apply for a combined program.

Board member Deb Ristau asked what the low number should be, if some students decide not to participate. It was agreed that five would be a good number of students. Ristau expressed concern that the students and their families should be made aware that the program will not be offered if there are less than five students signed up.

Several resignations and hires were approved at the meeting. The resignation of Holly Kanengieter as Community Ed. Director was approved, with thanks for her seven years of service. Brady Grewe, high school health and physical education teacher resigned from his position.
