Sept. 9: Old Coots meet

The next meeting of the Coots is 11 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 9, at Triple R in Kimball.

As most of you have heard we lost a couple more members since our last get together. Andy Maus passed away in May, and Jerry Rice in August.

Spread the word about the Sept. 9, and hope to see you there. Note second Tuesday in May and September, permanent dates.

Kimball preschool teacher added

Another preschool teacher has been hired to serve our 3-year-old students.

Kimball Play and Learn Preschool is happy to introduce our newest team member. Ms. Amy Feddema will be teaching the 3-year-old section of Play and Learn Preschool Monday and Wednesday mornings. She will also be serving as the Kimball/EV-W Early Childhood Educator for the Thursday morning Mixed Age Early Childhood Family W-Amy-Feddema-Untitled
Education (ECFE) Class that begins in October.

Hello families of Kimball Play and Learn Preschool,

I am thrilled to be a new addition to the Kimball Early Childhood Team. I have been substitute teaching for the past year and a half in preschools and elementary schools in both the St. Cloud and Sauk Rapids-Rice school districts. I have also worked as a special education paraprofessional for two years while completing my teaching license at St. Cloud State University. Prior to pursuing my passion of teaching, I worked with adults with disabilities for 13 years.

I have been married for 12 years to my wonderful husband Brent. We have an amazing daughter Abby (7) and loving dog Tanner (11). I enjoy spending time with family and friends and just being outdoors. I am so excited to begin my teaching career in Kimball. 

I look forward to meeting you and your children soon.

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.

Kimball Elementary School Supply List 2014 Revised

The prior list indicated some grades would collect money and the teacher would purchase the supplies.
That is no longer the case. ALL GRADES will buy their own supplies.
