SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, December 28, 2016 Page 3 From page 1 He noted the numbers are down to a very low level, especially with having two senior players having season ending ACL injuries. He says they have to try to fig- ure out how to get more girls to participate in the program. He also noted he would like to have a meeting with a couple board mem- bers, some parents, and some team members, and coaches to discuss the options for the future. He also says there are several other schools in similar situations. WWG has had this problems with some of the boys teams in the past as well. Theisen says WWG only has three students in the Panther wres- tling program, one in varsity and two on the B squad They are all doing well, winning matches. Theisen also gave the board a proposal in the State High School league rules. The change would be as follows: When Class A schools cooperatively sponsor an MSHSL sponsored activity, 100 % of the total enrollments of the largest school and 50% of the other school (s) in the co-op shall be combined to determine the appropriate com- petitive section classification. This would help two small schools with declining enrollments to move from 9 man class to class A, instead of class AA. Elementary Principal Paul Olson says the Sensory Room has been completed. It will be nice for paras to be able to take students who are having stress related issues and other things to this room, where they can calm them down. Principal Woelber reported a gift to the Education Foundation of $37,000 was received from the Janell Herlinger Hoff estate. Woelber says it was a very thoughtful gift for the foundation. Woelber talked about a security camera that has been installed in the hall outside the fitness center. He says it is motion activated and it can be accessed by date and time. He also says someone tracked in the fitness center with muddy shoes. There is a sign clearly marked that people using the center must change from their street shoes. Woelber said "we are going to have to replace some of our mini vans as they are getting too old to legally use for transporting stu- dents. We are also looking at adjusting our routes to accom- modate our needs and the needs of our students." He said a grant is being applied for a walk in freezer for the Westbrook kitchen. Woelber handed out a sched- ule for a Strategic Planning com- mittee. Senior class advisor Ashley Sandbulte gave a report on the senior class trip to New York Cit3 and Washington D.C. The triF will cost $1,673. She says they will save some money by staying at a hotel outside of New York City, and it includes all meals except breakfast. The board appointed Maydra Maas as temporary board chair person since the new chair per- son will not be named until after the new board is sworn in, at the January meeting. She will attend all chair persons functions at the convention Woelber told the board of changes in the secondary sched- ule. Sally Oltmans will teach a class in the third quarter. Mandy Dibble will possibly be given an overload due to her teaching Spanish Woelber talked about pushing kids to get their detentions made up quicker. He also thought in school suspensions are better than out of school suspensions -- because they at least get some of their work done. A math teacher collaborative with eight area school's math teachers was held. Ashley Sanbulte commented she thought it was very helpful, it's nice to know others sometimes face the same problems. She said they met once, and will meet again in March and at the end of the year. Woelber asked to present administrative options for the remainder of the school year at the January meeting. He says there are some areas that he thought he would need some additional help. Woelber also asked to have K-12 trained in common emer- gency procedures using a pro- gram similar but less intense than the A.L.I.C.E program given to some of the high school teachers. The board approved employee hirings. May Thao as Para for ELL and Math to replace Marcia Erickson. Paula Byers as lan- guage Arts for third quarter. Joyce Madson as long term sub for Jessica Laleman.
