School districts prepare for the coming school year


Both the Eden Valley-Watkins and Kimball school districts have been making preparations all summer for the coming 2014-15 school year.

Both districts face fluctuating enrollment, with class sizes that could change once school begins. And both districts have added sections of classes at the respec- tive elementary schools in antici- pation of larger class sizes.

Please stop in to see your child’s room, meet the teachers, pay for lunches, and bring in supplies.

At the elementary school, there will be booths set up in the gym for lunch tickets, P.I.E., Hendricks Bus Company, Early Childhood programs, and many more. Please be sure to check out the many helpful representatives there.

That is no longer the case. ALL GRADES will buy their own supplies.

These Ladies of Fair Haven attended Fair Haven W-Fair-Haven-Ladies-IMG 0294Public School and later Kimball High School classes of ’56, ’57, ’58 and ’60. They have remained in close contact with one another all through the years, and whenever Sharon Wesloh Brown is here visiting from Reno, Nev., they try to get together. They met Tuesday, July 29, at the home of Verna Salmela, and then spent the afternoon remembering old times and viewing the flower gardens of Verna, Vanessa Schlueter, and Evelyn Weisman.

Social time continues after the hayride at the Pearl Lake Lodge in Marty.

Bring your spouse or significant other. Spread the news to other classmates, including those who graduated before us, and those yet to turn 50.
