Fillmore Central receives $12,000 rebate


Mon, Feb 1st, 2016
Posted in Preston Education

The Fillmore Central School Board met for their regular meeting on January, 27 at 6:30 p.m.

The agenda was approved as well as the minutes of the previous meeting.

While reviewing the claims, it was noted that Preston Public Utilities refunded over $700 for water charges. An abnormally high water bill prompted an investigation by the school, which resulted in the finding of an open water hydrant. Preston Public Utilities was kind enough to refund the amount, for which the school board was grateful.

Rory Lenton from Minnesota Energy Resources attended the meeting to present the board with a rebate check for $12,454 for improvements made to the school. He also offered to send Paul O’Sullivan to go through the school to look for other ways to make energy-saving changes. The service would be free of charge, and Lenton highly recommended O’Sullivan as he is very qualified and good at his job. The board gratefully accepted the offer and thanked Lenton for taking the time to attend the board meeting.

The officers for 2016 were elected with Ross Kiehne as chairperson, Craig Britton as vice-chairperson, Jim Love as clerk, Deb Ristau as vice-clerk, and Sue Sikkink as treasurer. All offices were the same as last year.

The board salaries for 2016 were approved with no changes from 2015.

The committee assignments for the coming year were set. The only changes were Craig Britton moving to the Continuing Education committee, and Deb Ristau moving to the Extracurricular committee.

The 2016 official appointments and designations were kept the same as the previous year.

Principal Heath Olstad gave his report to the board. The spelling bee was held on January 18. Shelby Hanson won first place, Joe Liew got second, and Maddie Krage came in third. Shelby and Joe will represent Fillmore Central at the district bee in February.

There are currently eight girls enrolled in the Fillmore Central dance team. The team just finished its first season and the students have enjoyed participating in it. They have been doing the high kick style of dance, but would like to move on to the more technically challenging jazz style.

The One Act Play performed publicly on January 14.

Dean of Students, Chris Mensink, noted that the K-6 grades brought in a total of 63,906 milk moola, box tops, Our Family, and Campbell’s .....
