Last year the school received a grant of about $16,000 to fund the cost of the program. At the board meeting last Wednesday night, principal Paul Olson told the board they were denied the grant funding for the program. The money provided funds for purchasing healthy snacks, and the labor cost of the program. Board member Ginny Barron said, "I really hate to see it go away." Olson told the board if they wanted to do the program on their own, he felt it could be done more efficiently and for quite a bit less money. Barron also told the board she felt it is important for stu- dents to get fresh fruits and vegetables, plus it is one more thing we have to offer that other districts might not have. Olson told the board he could bring more information about the program to the next meeting. However board members Kerry Knakmuhs and Tim Helmer both said we should start it up again, and apply for the grant money next year. The board voted to fund the program for the remainder of the year. After the meeting, in speaking with Olson, he says that the program really seems to make a difference with the kids. They seem to be a lot healthier in genera!, and we have noticed they have had less colds and flu in the winter time. Olson also said they will begin serving healthy snacks on Monday (November 25). Athletic Director Leo Theisen gave_his athletLc report and presented the winter sports schedule. Theisen is concerned about the numbers for girls basket- ball, there are only 12 girls out, in grades 9-12, and fewer junior high girls. He has talked about pairing with Red Rock Central sometime down the road. Their numbers are also down but not as much as WWG's.
