In order to recognize achievement, outstanding progress, and responsible behavior in our student body, grade-level teams made up of teachers select one Kimball Area High School student in each grade to be recognized as the Student of the Month. The monthly winners are recognized in school, on the school website, and in the Tri-County News. They also receive a Dairy Queen gift certificate and Chamber Bucks from the Kimball Area Chamber of Commerce. Special thanks to Annandale’s Dairy Queen and the Kimball Chamber of Commerce for sponsoring this program. The following students are recognized for September 2013:
ECFE is hosting a Harvest Party for families with children ages 3-5. There will be a party in both locations, Watkins Elementary School and Kimball Elementary School from 6 to
7:30 p.m. The Watkins party is Monday, Oct. 28. The Kimball party is Tuesday, Oct. 29.
The fun evenings will have fall-themed activities, including an obstacle course.
The cost is $5 per family. Please wear black and orange to the party. For questions, please call ECFE office at (320) 398-7700, ext. 218.
The wind was blowing and the sun was hiding, but that didn’t stop local runners from running the Kover Klomp Saturday, 9 a.m. Oct. 12. This was the first annual 5K that the Kimball Kruisers put together. The turnout was great for the first time event, 22 participated in the 5K Fun Run/Walk and 15 kids participated in the 1K run.
Now what we have all been waiting for – the winners. A female and male in each age division was awarded a medal.
To the Kimball Class of 1959, we ask you to save the date of Aug. 13, 2014. We plan to meet for a reunion at 4 p.m. at Triple R Grill and Bar in Kimball. For more information, please call Marlene at (320) 558-2858, or Jane at (320) 236-7416.
Class/Grade/Subject(s): Business Education & District Curriculum Director
My family: Husband Jerry, and kids Eli9, Evelyn 6, AJ 2.
I grew up in: East Chain, Minn.
My high school: GHEC (Granada-Huntley-East Chain).
College: B.A. at Bethel University, M.Ed. at U of M.
Non-academic life achievements: My greatest achievement is successfully raising three Godly and respectful children.
My favorite school experience (as a student): I participated in Teacher/Student switch day and got to be the principal for a few hours.
My favorite school experience (as a teacher): There is nothing better than alumni taking time to come back to say "thanks." When that happens, it's proof that I made an impact.
Something most people don't know about me: I am a "tomboy," but am enjoying my new hobby of sewing. Also, I can type over 70 words per minute (which is good because my handwriting is getting worse as I age).
