The Mabel-Canton Board of Education met on February 18, 2014 at 7 p.m. All members were present except for Troy Soiney and Mark Weidemann. Principal Jeff Nolte was also absent.

The minutes from the January 21, 2014 board meeting were reviewed and approved.

The board wished to congratulate the students who took part in Sumdog’s Southeast Minnesota Math Contest. Forty-one Mabel-Canton school students answered a total of 15,084 questions correctly making Mabel-Canton the overall winner and a daily winner in the contest. The contest took place online from January 24-30. Four Mabel-Canton students placed in the top 10 out of 672 total contestants.

February 17-21 is Minnesota School Board recognition week. The Mabel-Canton school district extended its thanks to the school board for their service and commitment to the staff and students.
