Fillmore Central to bring back Cross Country


Fri, Jun 7th, 2013
Posted in Preston Education

The last time Fillmore Central had students involved in Cross Country was 2008-2009. At that time, there was only one student participating.

Recently, nine students expressed interest in starting the program again, which would be shared with Lanesboro Schools. Athletic Director Chris Mensink has spoken with Lanesboro, and they are willing to share the program again. The board approved a resolution to apply for a combined program.

Board member Deb Ristau asked what the low number should be, if some students decide not to participate. It was agreed that five would be a good number of students. Ristau expressed concern that the students and their families should be made aware that the program will not be offered if there are less than five students signed up.

Personnel Changes

Several resignations and hires were approved at the meeting. The resignation of Holly Kanengieter as Community Ed. Director was approved, with thanks for her seven years of service. Brady Grewe, high school health and physical education teacher resigned from his position. The high school English teacher resigned as newspaper advisor, and Vicki Nelson resigned as Junior Class Advisor.

The termination of non-tenured teachers Connie Lindstrom and Barbara Cihak was approved.

Aaron Mensink was approved as Senior Class Advisor, with Deb Ristau as Assistant Senior Class Advisor. The position of Junior Class Advisor was taken by Jenelle Thorman.

Gatlin Woellert and Taylor Case will be working as staff in the summer rec. program.

Nancy Broadwater was hired as Early Childhood Special Education Extended School Year paraprofessional. She will also be the van driver for six days this summer. Kelsey Ristau was hired as Special Ed. Teacher to begin in the fall. She will also be the ESY (Extended School Year) Special Ed. Teacher for the summer.

Head coaches were also approved for the 2013-2014 school year. Chris Mensink will be head football coach; Denise Case, volleyball; Melissa Kiehne, cheerleading;, Aaron Mensink, boys basketball; Sara Tollefsrud, girls basketball; and Jim Love, wrestling. Levi Olstad will be coaching the Junior High Knowledge Bowl team.
