Pictured Above are finalists Austin Schmit and Alex Wormstadt.

Sanborn Central’s Economics class participated in the South Dakota Bankers Foundation Business Plan Competition.  Students were required to create a realistic business plan that could be immediately successful if implemented. The plans included marketing strategies and detailed financial statements to predict future costs and sales.  Some students created sole proprietorships, while others chose to create partnerships.  As a class, there were seven entries into the competition.

Congratulations to Alex Wormstadt and Austin Schmit on being selected as one of the six finalists for the South Dakota Bankers Foundation Business Plan Competition out of 92 entries! They will travel to Pierre on Feb. 7 to present their product, “Double A Calf Boxes,” to the competition judges. “Double A Calf Boxes” is a partnership created that sells portable calf boxes to help protect calves from harsh elements during calving season.

All varsity athletic teams and fine arts groups that achieve a combined grade point average of 3.0 or higher are eligible to receive the SDHSAA Academic Achievement Team Award. With the completion of all the SDHSAA fall activities, the SDHSAA announces the schools and their teams who have received the “Academic Achievement Team Awards” for the 2017-2018 Fall Season.

The Sanborn Central/Woonsocket Volleyball Team was included on the list.

Initiated during the 1996-97 school year, the SDHSAA Academic Achievement Team Award program is designed to recognize varsity athletic teams and fine arts groups for their academic excellence. The South Dakota High School Activities Association believes that high school students learn in two distinct ways, inside the classroom and outside the classroom – on the stage and/or athletic field. This academic program creates a positive environment for school teams to have its members excel in the classroom. This program is also meant to motivate students toward academic excellence and to promote academic encouragement from teammates.

An honor assembly was held at Sanborn Central Middle School on Jan. 3. The purpose of the assembly was to acknowledge honor roll and student of the second quarter nominations.

The following students were nominated by their content teachers for their efforts in the classroom: Ellie Kisor, Hannah Dickson, Shania Cornelius, Brighten Hitchcock, Ellie Evans, Brooklyn Johnson, Casady Dean, Jessie Krueger, Michael Hoffman, Kara Wormstadt, Carter Hitchcock, Aubrey Senska, Isabella Bitterman, Jaslyn Swearingen, Kerstyn Schladweiler and Keaton Fridley.

“Star” Student honors were given to Hannah Dickson, Brooklyn Johnson and Kara Wormstadt.
