Fillmore Central Elementary applies to be celebration school


Fri, Nov 1st, 2013
Posted in Fountain Education

At the regular school board meeting on October 29, Dean Chris Mensink informed the board that Fillmore Central Elementary is eligible to be a Minnesota Department of Education Celebration School. He explained the top 25 percent of schools in Minnesota are eligible for this recognition, and it is based on MCA scores as well as growth.

Mensink said they must apply to receive the title of Celebration School, and they are working on the application right now.

Mensink also shared that the One & Done Fundraiser that the students in grades 5-8 participate in each year raised $12,386. This money goes toward field trips, band and choir, sports, and many other places it is needed. Mensink thanked the community for their continued support.

Personnel

The resignation of John Aske, high school custodian, was approved. It was also approved to hire John Koch for that position. The hire of Katie Sveen as a paraprofessional at the elementary school was approved.

Aaron Janssen was approved for the seventh grade girls basketball coach.

Jim Stevens was hired as a long-term substitute for Dennis Petersen, Industrial Arts. Also hired for a long-term sub was Terry Sinn in first grade for Jeanette Burns’ maternity leave.

The board approved a shared service agreement with Kingsland for an ECSE (Early Childhood Special Education) teacher. The services of Paula Birch will be used as needed in Kingsland for any new referrals.

Lawn Tractor

Superintendent Richard Keith explained the drive shaft broke on the tractor they used to drag ball fields and clear snow from the sidewalks at the elementary school. The tractor was sold at an auction for $1,250, and they will be selling two more tractors that are not being used.

Keith presented quotes to the facilities committee earlier this month and they agreed on an X730 with a new broom for $9,500 from Preston Equipment. It is brand new, and includes a factory warrantee. The board approved.

Other Business

The board discussed having a board retreat so the board can get together for discussion. There will be no decisions made and no action taken at this retreat. A date and time will be determined.

The board approved the following items:

•Sports sharing agreements with Mabel-Canton for wrestling, and Lanesboro for wrestling, track, baseball an .....
