Help Kimball Elementary put two iPad minis in each classroom to aid in our children’s education
The KES third-grade students are thanking The Kimball and Fairhaven Lions clubs for providing the funding for iPads that the students began using January 2013. The iPads have so many instructional uses that the teachers feel the need to place two iPads in each classroom in grades K-6.
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 October 2013.
KIMBALL held a program at the high school with students from grades 3-12 at 10 a.m. Veterans Day, Nov. 11. Local veterans (above) were asked to sit in front of the students for the program. The Kimball Legion Auxiliary and Junior Auxiliary presented the flag-folding ceremony, and the POW-MIA table. 2013 Girls’ Stater Erin Diffley spoke. Guest speaker Jack Young was unable to attend, but the moving video of his 2010 Honor Flight to Washington, D.C., was played. The students were quiet and respectful, which says a lot. The program ended with all singing “America, the Beautiful.”
An event honoring Central Minnesota’s educational support staff was held Monday, Sept. 30, at the River’s Edge Convention Center, St. Cloud.
In its fourth year, 101 people were honored from 27 school districts. The event honors those who work as bus drivers, custodians, cooks, paraprofessionals and other staff who help keep schools running smoothly.
“Resource is proud to give recognition to the education support staff,” said Rob Cavanna, CEO of Resource. “They are an integral part of our school districts and help them run efficiently on a daily basis. They promote student achievement, ensure student safety and contribute to the establishment and promotion of a positive and safe instructional environment,” he added.
