The Kingsland School Board held a regular meeting on Monday, October 20. In attendance were Kristin Beck, Gwen Howard, Deb Larson, Doug Plaehn, and superintendent John McDonald. The meeting was called to order, and the Board led the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by the Consent Agenda items, which included minutes from September’s meeting and readings of policy items. The Consent Agenda items were approved as submitted.

Next, public “Thank You” and recognition was given regarding the following: Southeast Chapter of MN Deer Hunter’s Association for $550 donation toward curriculum, Essig Agency for $250 toward Robotics, VFW for $500 toward Robotics, parent volunteers who helped with hearing and vision screenings, VFW for donation of three flags, and KPAG (Kingsland parent group) for help with Watch DOGS program.
