Superintendent’s Corner

March 2, 2015


When will it begin to warm up?  March is here and it should not be long.  I saw on the ten day forecast that a week from Wednesday, it may hit 48 degrees.  If we can get through a few more days I think we will hopefully see some much warmer days on the horizon.  With all the fish houses being carted off of the ice this past weekend; this must be a sure sign of spring.

Sometimes old news is better than no news, and since I have not written an article for a couple of weeks, a number of exciting things have happened at our school.

School Board Recognition Week

February 16th-20th was Minnesota School Board Recognition Week.  I know this is late, but I wanted to share this with everyone so when you see these individuals please let them know that they are appreciated for they work they do in seeing that a great school system is in place for the young people of our community.  Serving on the school board requires dedication, commitment, and a good deal of volunteering of time.  The current board members are as follows:  Bob Kramer, chair, Dan Perry, vice chair, Pat Haney, treasurer, Matt Drewicke, clerk, Dana Blume, director, and Matt Volker, director.  As the superintendent, I can say it is a pleasure to work with such a caring group of individuals who want nothing but what is good for kids.  Thanks for all your hard work and commitment.

Spelling Bee

Our school spelling bee took place a couple of weeks ago and it was fun to see the students all do so well in the contest.  Our first place winner was Andy Kramer, 5th grade, 2nd place went to Lexi Bartell, 8th grade, and third place was Wilson Ramon, 6th grade.  The winner was then allowed the opportunity to compete in the Regional Spelling Bee in Fergus Falls.  Though Andy did not win the regional competition, he represented the Herman-Norcross School District very well.  Congratulations to Andy, our other winners, and all who competed locally.

Girls Basketball

Congratulations to the WHN girls basketball team as they won the Pheasant Conference with an outstanding regular season record.  Our girls will begin playoffs on Thursday evening in Wheaton as they secured the number one seed in the South Sub-Section 6A.  Good luck to our Lady Warriors!

Late Start

We have a scheduled late start for Monday, March 9, as it is a morning of staff development for our faculty.  Classes will begin two hours late.  Please plan accordingly for your students.

Make it a great week!
