The Great River Music Club and the National Federation of Music Clubs recently awarded a second gold cup in piano solo to Cassie Erickson. To achieve a second gold cup,
six or more years of performance in the festival are required. There were more than 400 students who participated in the festival at the College of St. Benedict Saturday, Feb. 23.
Cassie is a student at Kimball Area High School, and has just completed the 10th grade.
The Kimball Boys’ and Girls’ basketball programs held a basketball camp at Kimball Area Elementary School last week, Monday through Thursday, June 3-6. Participants in the camp consisted of boys and girls in kindergarten, first, and second grade. Players learned about the different fundamentals of basketball related to ball-handling, dribbling, passing, and shooting. Campers participated in a number of contests and competitions, both individually and as a team over the course of the week. All of the 34 campers worked extremely hard and improved tremendously throughout the week.

Recently launched on the Kimball area schools’ website is an on-line trophy case. KAHS students Adam Laabs and Nate Overland, along with KAHS teacher Nancy Bonnifield have been working on the on-line trophy case since January. Last week the trophy case was launched.
The idea is for alumni, students, community members to be able to access and look at the trophy case via the Kimball school’s website. To get to the trophy case you need to go to: www.kimball.k12.mn.us, then select Activities, and then trophy case. You will see the different sports at KAHS with the trophies for each sport. Conference, subsection, section, subdfistrict, district, and state trophies were put in the case. It is a process in which the students took the trophies from the trophy case and took pictures, downloaded them to a computer and cropped pictures. Students then copied pictures of trophies and passed them to Mrs. Bonnifield who arranged and put them on the school website.
The goal this year was to launch athletics this year, and then expand to the fine arts next year.
