Laney was crowned on July 14 and is a local title holder for the Miss South Dakota’s Outstanding Teen organization. Her platform is “Art For All.” She promotes how art can help people express themselves and how art comes in many different forms. She shared many projects that she has made while attending Mitchell High School. Laney enjoys going to surrounding schools and sharing her love of art. She instructed the students on how to make a turkey, and the class enjoyed having her as a guest.

Chris Selland gave the financial report. There will be one more bill forthcoming from Tellinghuisen Construction for the elementary addition.

Superintendent Weber advised that the State is instituting new graduation requirements next year that will classify diplomas as one of several options from more advanced academic to less rigorous options. It should not affect our course offerings or curriculum. 

The staff has been utilizing a new program this year (IXL Math)  that targets each individual student’s strengths and weaknesses and provides on-line curriculum tailored to the student.  The program is available for K-12 students and can also be utilized at home for additional help. The Woonsocket Elementary Parent Club (WEPC) purchased the program for the district this year, and results so far have been positive.

Superintendent Weber would like to thank Mr. Schmiedt and the Industrial Technology classes for donating their time to install the new benches and complete the landscaping project in front of the new addition. Also, thank you to Mrs. Delvaux, all staff that assisted, and the elementary students for the very inspirational Veterans Day program held on Monday, November 12th.

Superintendent Weber went over the enrollment predictions for the next several years (Sanborn Central and Woonsocket) in relation to South Dakota High School Activities Association activity classifications.

Mr. Jason Bruce updated the Board on the busing program and advised that the WEPC was working with staff on an additional supplemental piece/pieces of playground equipment with plans for possible implementation next year. Thanks go out to the WEPC for their support of this future project.  

A motion was made by Jodi Doering, with a second by Lisa Snedeker, to approve Shelley Schlicht as Basketball Cheer Coach for 2018-2019 at a stipend of $750.00 (shared 50 percent with Sanborn Central). Motion carried.   

There being no further business to come before the Board, the November 12th, 2018, regular board meeting of the Woonsocket Board of Education was adjourned at 7:52 p.m. on a motion by Neal Hiemstra, with a second by Todd Olinger. Motion carried.
