Lanesboro School Board approves horticulture project

By Jade Sexton

Lanesboro High School students Dalton Gartner and Jarrett Brown gave a presentation to the school board during their regular meeting on March 21. The board approved the landscaping project the horticulture class designed for outside the school building, around the school sign.

The Power Point presentation outlined the reasons the project is needed, which included creating an outdoor lab experience for future horticulture classes. It also gives the class the experience of working in a real outdoor environment.

Gartner explained the different plants and trees that were chosen for the project, and why they were chosen. Pom Pom Junipers, Butterfly flowers, and two kinds of blue spruce will be surrounded with Byron Red Rock and Hardwood Bark Mulch.

Board member Steve Snyder asked if the rock would get too hot in the sun and burn the plants. Horticulture teacher Jason Resseman explained that only the evergreens will be surrounded by the rock, and they will be able to withstand the heat.

Resseman also explained there will be two inches of rock, and it will all be lined with landscape plastic. He added there will be an opportunity for maintenance as the projects mature over the years by future classes.

The board approved the project, with an estimated cost of $2,705. The money will come from the general fund.

Superintendent Jeff Boggs presented the board with the calendar for the 2013-2014 school year. He said it is similar to this year’s calendar. There are 176 student contact days, seven workshop days, and one day for new teachers. School will start on September 3, with the last day being June 4. Graduation will most likely be on June 1.

Other Business

Spring sport coaches were approved as presented. Lori Anderson will be the head coach for track, along with Tom Hatleli, Joe Cullen, Andy Bunge, Eric Bunge, Jared Pierce, and Mingo Kingsley. John Smith and Cody Hungerholt will be coaching golf.

The resignation of Cindy Holmen, head cook, was approved with thanks for her years of service to the district.
