Kimball Schools were excited to welcome back area students last week. Classes are in full swing, the homework has started, teams are practicing, activities are meeting, and Homecoming is next week already. It's a busy, but promising start to the year.
There has been a great deal of school and community interest in making Homecoming a celebration that is both fun for students and a source of pride and fellowship for community members. Highlights of the week include coronation Sunday, Sept. 19, the Homecoming volleyball match at home Thursday, Sept. 23, the Homecoming football game at home Friday, Sept. 24, and the Homecoming dance Friday night after the game.
Everyone is encouraged to come out and show support for our students during Homecoming Ð and throughout the year, as well. How amazing is it when the bleachers and stands are full, when kids can see people enjoying events that they worked hard on? Kids are encouraged to show respect to community members and their property. Homecoming is about bringing the community and school together.
Kimball Schools will also providing an opportunity for the community to get information about the operating levy referendum questions that will be on the ballot for voter approval election day this November. The district will host an operating levy information meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 11, in the high school cafetorium.
There is a great deal of information that will be available to voters concerning the district budget, school funding and the needs of the district going forward. District staff and school board members will be available to answer any questions. It will also be a great forum to provide input.
We sincerely hope everyone will be able to attend the operating levy information meeting on Oct. 11. In the meantime, you may also contact Kurt Helgeson, School Board Chair, at (320) 420-2662, or
. Also, concerned community members have also put up a website, www.Because OurKidsMatter.com, that has information on the operating levy and how to get answers or become involved.
The School Board would like to extend its best wishes to all students, staff members and parents for a successful year.
