Lena School Considering 5K English Language Support

At its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 20, the Lena School Board discussed the possibility of a 5K English Language Learner Support program. Currently the school district has a part time translator, but the board was advised that more may be needed.
The Lena Public Library is thinking of expanding and school authorities are looking at using some of the school’s land for the expansion.
Action items were all approved as presented. They included the 2022 Summer School Contract for Ashley DeHutas; Janitorial Contract for James Sutherland for the 2022-2023 school year; Parent Transportation Contracts for Julianna Cotner and Joy Huerta for the 2022-2023 school year; contract for Cheer Coach Angela Rabas for the 2022-2023 school year, and approval of a Support Staff position that is still in the making.
High School/Middle School Principal Matt Hanson reported Homecoming was very nice this year. He said Middle School Collaboration meetings and parent meetings have begun, and AP Government classes have been registered. There was discussion about  changes in Health credits.
Administrator/Elementary Principal Ben Pytleski said recently Lamers Bus Lines had a late call, leaving one bus route without a driver. Pytleski and others worked fast at getting pick up for the students at the last minute.
Pytleski advised the board that the district had received a new sound system for the press box, and  said he will be looking into  the Teachers on Call contract.
He also said area businesses and the Lena Lions Club had put off fireworks after the football game because the Dairy Fest was rained out, and the thought was to present the fireworks after the Homecoming Football game on Friday, Sept. 16.
All School Board members - Charles Imig, Timothy A. Goldschmidt, Ed Huberty, David McNurlen and Chair Lori Dufek - were present for the meeting, and all action items were approved by unanimous board vote.
