The Lanesboro School Board met on April 16, 2015 at 7 p.m. Board members Dave Lawstuen and Lolly Melander were not present.

The agenda was approved with two additions.

The minutes from the March 29, 2015 board meeting were reviewed and approved.

Board Chairman Dave Ruen gave the treasury report. The Lanesboro school district currently has a bank balance of $415,949.99.

The district bills and payroll were approved by the board.

Students Cade Pederson and Travis Troendle gave a presentation to the board of the horticulture class’s plans for the north parking lot. Currently, the lot is overgrown and an eyesore. The horticulture class would like to clean up the lot and plant a lilac tree in the center of it with juniper bushes surrounding the tree. Both plants were chosen for their low maintenance levels. The total cost of the project will be $1212, which covers the costs of one lilac tree, 20 junipers, and delivery of the plants. The class will install the plants themselves and have verified that the actual cost will not exceed the estimation. The board approved the project.

Lanesboro students and members of the greenhouse committee, Maggie Haugstad, Haely Leiding, and Kayla Leiding presented a greenhouse update to the board. A ramp built by Mike Kimmel has been installed at the greenhouse, making it accessible to all students. The horticulture class has been busy transplanting flowers and plants, assembling greenhouse tables, and putting together hanging baskets and pots. The class will be selling the hanging baskets and pots on May 8 and 9, and the money earned during the sale will help fund the horticulture program at the school. The program has been very educational for the students, as they are not only learning horticulture, but business skills as well. Teacher Jason Resseman noted that the horticulture program has seen a new level of participation and interest in the current class. He stated, “I feel that this is a viable class for this institution.” Several of the board members had questions for the students about the sale and greenhouse before approving a motion to hold the sale.

A resolution authorizing the district’s membership in the Minnesota State High School League, or MSHSL, was approved. This will allow the school’s sports teams to continue to play in the state playoffs.

The board wished to congratulate the band and .....
