I have seen a few other ceremonies and I feel that WWG has a great mix of slideshow, band, choir, speakers and yet get it done in less than an hour! The annual FFA awards night was amazing as well with a record 52 students competing at the State level! We are very fortunate to have the 3 quality advisors in Linda Carter, Josh Barron and Doug Lee when other schools are just trying to find one to keep their programs going. Who would have thought that Linda Carter's dream of 10-15 years ago of build- ing a strong FFA would result in being one of the top 5 in the entire state in terms of students participating at the state level and % of student body participating and great balance in terms of gender, city/rural and multicultural participation. Last week the School Board and Administration spent a cou- ple hours with Cliff Carmody, Executive Director of the SW/ WC School Service Cooperative visiting about updated priori- ties for the next few years. CliffCarmody is a veteran teacher, Principal and Superintendent and has spent most of his career in SW MN and is passionate about education in rural Minnesota. We reviewed a vision that we worked on in 2008 that states: "We want to be a district that every student wants to be a part of and every teacher wants to teach in and every citizen wants to be a part of. We want to provide a positive academic, tech- nological and co-curricular environment that produces adapta- ble, professional, and literate citizens of the world." This statement along with our original 1990 WWG Charger Vision of "providing students with the living and learning skills they will need to act as responsible citizens in a democratic society." We reviewed prior planning sessions in which we looked at what we do well and what could be improved. We also looked at our past successes that we planned on as well as the wonder- ful things that we did with estate funds and education founda- tion funds that we did not count on. We came up with 6 pri- orities to set goals for the next few years. The first priority is to keep the district in strong financial shape and not run the fund balance down. The second priority is to be on top of early childhood students including preschool and get them and their families involved in our district early. The third priority is to prepare all students with 21 st Century skills and make sure they are independent thinkers. The fourth priority is to graduate students that are well rounded with problem solving skills, creativity, flexible and strong relationship skills. The fifth pri- ority is to have great communication between the board/admin- istration and the staff, the students and the community. The sixth priority is to take care of our employees by supporting their ideas, their staff development and their community involvement. Cliff Carmody and the Administration will work on goals to keep these priorities alive and hopefully will keep this district strong into the future. As this goes to print, I will be back in the WWG district full time this next school year pending any other districts in the area needing my shared services. There are a couple other duties that I may be able to help with and I'll also make a push to strengthen the Education foundation in terms of donations and communications for alumni. lED ADS 274-6136 OR I -800-41 O- 1 859 Wills, Trusts, LLCs and More Presented by Attorney Pat Lowther Call 651-216-I 440 to reserve your spot Monday, June 17 1:00-3:00 PM at Community Center, Westbrook, MN How to do this: And avoid these: - Transfer your farm to the - Probate next generation - Death Taxes -Treat family members fairly - Nursing Home - Plan for your long-term Expenses care June 12-19, 2013 Senior Nutrition Services serving at the The Recipe at 11:30 a.m. each operating day.
