The Lanesboro School Board officially hired three teachers for the coming school year at their meeting on July 19. Nicole Howard will teach the first-second grade split; Howard has taught previously at Lanesboro for four or five years. Superintendent Jeff Boggs spoke highly of her saying, "She's a good, experienced teacher to come in and work with the 1-2 split."
Chris Hanson, a Lanesboro graduate from a few years ago, will teach the second fifth grade class. Hanson has been teaching Title I for the last several years and has a great rapport with the students according to Boggs.
Joe Cullen will take over the secondary math teaching assignment. Cullen hails from the Twin Cities; his wife Ellen has Lanesboro roots.
Just when it seemed all the teaching positions had been filled for the year, Boggs announced he'd received a resignation letter from music instructor Molly Busta. Calling her career at Lanesboro "positive, memorable, and rewarding," Busta wrote that she was resigning because of a change in "residency and career." She will be moving to Ohio and plans to perform with a band. Board member Dave Ruen commented, "We were lucky to have her when we did!" Ruen expressed his "deep gratitude for her passion and skills the past few years."
Milk, Bread and Lunch Prices
The board accepted the lone bid for supplying bread from Sara Lee Baking at a 2 1?2 to 3 1?2 percent increase. Ziebell's Hiawatha Foods bid was accepted; the milk price rose a hefty 26 percent, partially because of rising fuel and grain costs.
After accepting the bids on bread and milk, the board set the new prices for school lunches for 2007-2000, raising the ticket prices by approximately 15 percent-breakfast, $1.00; K-6 lunch, $1.65; 7-12 lunch, $1.95; adult, $3.55; juice, $45/year; milk, $35/year.
In other business the board:
set the Truth in Taxation hearing for November 29 with a continuation date of December 6 if needed;
decided to keep substitute teacher pay at $100 per day with mileage paid at the rate of 48 1?2 cents per mile.
