The Kimball School Board would like to wish everyone a happy and safe Holiday season. It's been a great first half of the school year filled with a lot of successes. From the varsity volleyball team to the elementary Knowledge Bowl team, Kimball students are working hard and bringing pride to themselves, their school and their community.
As 2009 draws to a close, we would like to acknowledge both the outstanding efforts being made by our students and the dedication of the families that support them. To the kids, thank you for all the time spent studying and practicing. To the parents, thank you for all the time spent hounding your kid to get their homework done or sitting in the car waiting for your kid only to find out you're at the wrong door. When parents and students make education a priority, success is inevitable.
The next school board meeting will be in the new year and we will say goodbye to two outstanding board members, Marguerite Laabs and Tim Peglow. Both are Kimball alumni in their own right and they brought passion and dedication to their work on the school board. Their many years of service are greatly appreciated and they will be missed. In their place, we welcome two respected community members, Jody Gagnon and Tom Schreiner. They have children in the district and have been active in various community organizations. They will bring fresh perspective and energy and we are excited to work with them.
New years are always opportunities for new beginnings and growth. As Kimball school board members, we recognize the many challenges facing our district in the coming year. We also recognize that every challenge we encounter is also an opportunity to better our district and strengthen our community. We are enthusiastic about our ability as a district to pull together, find out what we're really capable of, and usher in a new era of Kimball pride and resourcefulness. Kimball has always been and will always be a school district and community worth investing and believing in.
As always, we encourage the community to attend school board meetings, typically held the third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the high school district board room. The Kimball Schools Web site and the Tri-County News will have meeting information as well as school board meeting minutes available online. Again, thank you students, families and community members for a wonderful and successful year.
