The Fillmore Central football team raised $8,500 this fall by selling coupon books during their annual fundraiser. This money will be spent on a new sprinkler system for the fields.

At the regular board meeting on September 24, Athletic Director Chris Mensink expressed his thanks to the community for supporting the team, and thanked Jim Love for his offer to transport the sprinkler.


The board approved the resignation of Jessica Marzolf as ECSE paraprofessional. The resignation of paraprofessional Jill Miller was also approved, as was the resignation of custodian Nate Jones.

One of the custodial positions was terminated in order to combine it with a full-time position. John Aske was hired as a custodian, as was Donna Oellrich. Jill Miller was hired as a 4/5 preschool aide.

Winter coaching assistants were also approved, as head coaches had been approved at a previous meeting. There is still a need for a 7th grade girls basketball assistant coach. Joe Cullen is the assistant varsity wrestling coach, Alan LaFleur assistant coach, and Paul Snell the volunteer assistant. In girls basketball, John O’Connor is in b-squad, and Kelsey Ristau for 8th grade. Andrew Pederson is assistant b-squad coach in boys basketball, with Tris Tollefson in 9th grade, Kyle Rundquist 8th grade, and Levi Olstad for 7th grade.

Other Business

The board approved the preliminary 2013 payable 2014 tax levy at the maximum amount. The final budget and levy will be approved in December.

The October meeting was changed to Tuesday, October 29 at 6:30 p.m. in Preston, Minn.

•The reimbursement of a graduate credit for a staff member

•A change in the van driver pay scale

•An open enrollment request for three students from the Kingsland district
