SENTINEL TRIBUNE EDUCATION Wednesday, August 28, 2013 Page 8 Greetings Chargerland! School is back in full swing and the WWG Elementary stu- dents and teachers are glad to be back. It is wonderful to have the classrooms full and the hallways full of noise. The WWG Elementary K-6 will be doing NWEA testing starting the fLrSt week of September. We would be done already, but there was a glitch in the system, so we have to wait an extra week or two. The MCA II testing scores are out and we will find out soon where we stand on the AYP scale (Annual Yearly Progress). Parents will be informed of their children's test scores at P/T Conferences. Our After-School Academy program will also start in early September. Each week students will spend two nights working on extra math and reading skills, which will help them pass the MCA III tests next Spring. We are moving our fitness center to a room in the SW part of our building. Many of you would remember it as Mr. Fomberg's art room, and before that it was the Ag classroom. Brent Alms and his crew have been busy knocking down a few walls. Ron's Electric have been working on the getting it wired for the exercise machines, and Steve and Dixie Severson have been painting like crazy on nights and weekends. Hopefully it will be done soon. We will then move equipment and be ready to go. This project move should be done by the middle or end of September at the latest. I always love the stories that our students share with me during dinner at school or on the bus. It is great to listen to their exciting summer fishing adventures, swimming lesson accomplishinents, and new places they have visited while on vacation. You also need to remember we are in farm country and little boys love to talk about who has the biggest farm machinery at home. I listened to a couple young men talk about their dads and grandpa's farm machinery on the bus ride home the other night. "My dad has a planter that can plant this many rows! .... My grandpa got a brand new truck to haul grain with." We've all heard these stories when we've been around kids. I had to laugh to myself when one young man was telling his buddies that his grandpa bought a brand new combine that has a refrigerator in it. I tell you what, as hot as it was driving bus last week, listening to this story with sweat running down my back drenching my shirt, I was thinking to myself, I wished they had refrigerators on buses. But, I thought about it for another second with students yelling in the back of the bus and it came to me why they do not. So grandpa with the new combine, if a big yellow bus pulls up next to you in the field when you are harvesting this fall, I hope you will give us a quick tour of this combine. Along that same line, I hope everyone involved with getting this year's crop in has a safe harvest. Back to school talk, parents are reminded to call with any questions or concerns. My office phone number is 507-859- 4001. Have a good one everybody! [ ,eer licenses now on sale Deer hunting licenses are now available for purchase. Hunters who want an either- sex deer or special hunt permit for the coming season must apply by Thursday, Sept. 5, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) said. Hunters should carefully review the list of lottery areas, particularly in extreme north- western Minnesota and the Iron Range area of northeast- ern Minnesota. The following permit areas are designated as lottery this year but were not last year: 176, 101, 105, 111, 267 and 268. Elsewhere, other permit area designations have changed too in response to Meal deer population changes. Regulations are detailed in Minnesota's 2013 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook and Deer Season Map, which now are available wherever hunting and angling licenses are sold, online at and in many DNR offices across the state. Fifty-eight of the state's 129 permit areas are lottery areas. The number of permit areas designated as lottery is unchanged from 2012. The number of either-sex permits available has increased about 10 percent. People can purchase a deer license and apply for the lot- tery or a special hunt at any DNR license agent, by tele- phone at 888-665-4236 or online at buyalicense. Lottery winners will be notified in October. Hunters can apply for lot- tery deer areas and special hunts using both their fire- arm and muzzleloader licens- es. Although a hunter can be selected for both licenses, successful applicants can only take one deer in lottery permit areas. In the case of special hunts, a person may draw both a firearm and muzzleloader permit, in which case he or she must adhere to the bag lim- its established by each special hunt. Lottery deer areas in 2013 are permit areas 101,103, 105, 108, 110, 111, 118, !19, 122, 169, 171, 172, 176, 183, 184, 197, 199, 234, 237, 238, 250, 251,252, 253, 260, 261,262, 263, 266, 267, 268, 269, 270, 271,272, 274, 275, 276, 277, 278, 279, 280, 281,282, 283, 284, 285, 286, 288, 289, 290, 291,294, 295, 296, 297, 298 and 299. DNR encourages hunters to review new deer hunting regulations, permit area desig- nations and boundary chang- es before applying.

They played 14 games and attended four Friday activities. The activi- ties included two movies at the Windom Theater, the Tracy Aquatic Center, and a trip to Lake Laura. They learned some baseball skills, how to be part of a team and how to have fun. They ended the season at Westbrook and enjoyed hot dogs, chips and a drink after the game! It was a good summer!! !
