Kimball Elementary School is proud to announce the Student Government members for the 2013-2014 school year. The sixth graders include Bailee Schiefelbein, Tori Harren, Justice Boyer, and Brian Binsfeld. The new fifth-graders include Andrea Jendro, Natalee Kunkel, Alex Nelson, and Naomi Bollman. The student government members are the role models of the school and are students who will do their best academically.
The group organizes special fund raisers to raise money for local organizations, the school, and global areas as well. In the past we have held hat days, and dress-up contests, sold pencil supplies, and also tallied Gohmann’s receipts to earn “free” equipment for KES. Last year, we counted more than $190,000 in receipts, and earned a great deal of school items for KES. We also hold a big food drive in the spring, and all food items are donated to the Kimball Area Food Shelf. This year we will also be working with the Kimball Area High School Student Government to raise money for Kids Against Hunger.

The Kimball Area Dollars for Scholars will be meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, at the Kimball Area High School to decide the future of the organization. Because of the National Dollars for Scholars, IRS changes and declining interest from the community and parents, our organization is struggling to stay alive. Kimball Area Dollars for Scholars members will be meeting with donors and any community individuals and parents that want to help with the future of our organization.
With only eight members and three of these members stepping down, our organization needs help. Kimball Area Dollars for Scholars future will depend on the attendance at this meeting. So come join us and let us hear from you if our organization is an important part of the Kimball community. If unable to attend, and you would like to voice your concerns, let us know by calling Maureen at (320) 398-2539.
