Fillmore Central projects nearing completion


Mon, Sep 1st, 2014
Posted in Harmony Education

There were multiple projects going on at both the Harmony and Preston sites of Fillmore Central Schools, and all of them are winding down as the first day of school approaches.

Principal Heath Olstad said the sprinkler system at the high school has been tested for leaks and had all of them fixed. The city’s street 1st Ave street project is scheduled to be completed before school starts.

“Things have really changed the last few weeks,” he said.

Dean Chris Mensink stated the parking lot at the elementary site will have their paving completed as well. Contractors have been working on fixing the parking lots all summer, and have been putting in a new parking lot in front of the school. The project will help with a lot of parking and drainage issues they have been dealing with for years.

Mensink added the new banners are up in the gym, and the new scorer’s tables are in place at both schools, and they are ready for the new year.

Staff Development

Superintendent Richard Keith told the board members about a new online staff development program. The MREA (Minnesota Rural Education Association) has discontinued their support of this system, so he is now looking at Education Impact to meet those needs. There is a start-up fee of $500 and online training for the program for $1,500. There is a $3,200 cost per building to use the program. Keith felt this program would tie in well with the current evaluation system. It will mainly be used during staff development time, and will be paid for with staff development funds. The board approved.

Principal and Dean Reports

Mensink said the schedules are all set and ready for the new school year. There are currently 41 students in kindergarten, 45 in 1st grade, 57 in 2nd grade, 47 in 3rd grade, 38 in 4th grade, 41 in 5th grade, and 50 in 6th grade.

Mensink also presented the board with the student numbers for fall sports. There are 74 people signed up for football, 53 for volleyball, 11 for cross country, and 11 for cheerleading.

Mensink recently attended a Why We Play conference, which he said was a great conference about how the school’s goal is educational athletics, a discussion of the core values and philosophy of school sports, and how to promote that.

Micki Breitsprecher, Director of Special Ed., informed the board that with the resignation of Lisa Wil .....
