Fillmore Central accepts generous donation from Norby Tree Service


Mon, Aug 1st, 2016
Posted in Harmony Government

In preparation for the new parking lot at the high school, Norby Tree Service removed six trees and ground up one stump from that location. Fillmore Central was originally quoted $3,500 by Norby’s for the work, but that cost was brought down to $1,000 by a generous $2,500 donation from Norby’s. The Fillmore Central School Board thanked Norby Tree Service for their considerate gift at their meeting on July 26.

The school readiness program is on track to receive Pathway II funding. They currently have 26 students registered for 3/4 school readiness and 22 for 4/5. Karn Friedges and Jessica Marzolf will be teaching Kinder Camp this year during the weeks of August 1 and 8. The parent educator position for ECFE is still open, as well as an infant lead teacher position in the daycare.

The 2016-17 K-6, 7-12, Root River Program, Faculty, and Coaches handbooks were approved by the board, along with the second reading of some of the board policies.

The resignation of SAC aide Matthew Gregg was approved as well as the termination of custodian Andrew Hyke. Aaron Mensink was hired as the girls golf coach and Kenzie Lind as the volunteer coach for the volleyball program, both for the 2016-17 school year.

The board approved the renewal of the membership with the Minnesota School Board Association. The dues are $3,292 for association dues and $650 for policy services.

Two quotes were received for the repairs to a portion of the outfield fence at the baseball field which sustained wind damage on July 5. Sutherland, the company that originally installed the fence, suggested replacing the 2 1/2” posts with 3” posts and narrowing the spaces between them at a cost of $4,717. A competing company submitted a quote in the amount of $7,200 which included upgrades to 4” posts plus a center rail in addition to the existing top and bottom rails. Superintendent Richard Keith spoke with the school’s insurance agent since the second quote is greater than the $5,000 deductible. The agent will be looking into whether or not the school can upgrade.

As part of the World’s Best Workforce plan, the board reviewed the current Vision, Mission, Beliefs, and Goals. “It seems really good to me. I don’t see a reason to change it,” noted board member Jim Love. The rest of the board agreed and the goals were approved.

The next meeting will be held on August 23 at 6:30 p.m. in the .....
