Be sure to utilize the south entrance of Brooks Street Lobby when vis- iting our school, as the remaining doors will be locked at 8:30 a.m. We're looking at a six-week period for the complete instal- lation of the maple gymnasium flooring. Following. the floor installation, another two weeks will be required to complete the erection and installation of the bleachers. FLR Sanders will move onto the stage and begin the floor installation following completion of the gym. The masonry work has been completed for the lift station adjacent to the stage, and delivery of the lift is set for Feb. 11. Our fine arts team continues to work with vendors to complete the audio and lighting equipment selection and installation. As we near completion of phase I, we'll monitor our general con- struction conditions and contin- gency funds to determine the fea- sibility, scope, and time frame for phase II, which will upgrade the elementary boilers and air han- dling measures at Watkins Ele- mentary School.

We had the opportunity to meet and collaborate with Meeker County officials to review our current cri- sis management plan, and generate ideas for potential improvements that will enhance our measures for providing our students and staff with a safe and welcoming learn- ing environment. We'll continue to research "best practice" protocol as we have another crisis management meeting set for Jan. 25, with Stearns County officials.

Book Club Members Mrs. Kuechle Mrs. Lahr EV-W wrestlers fall to HL-W-W By Pat Garry, Staff writer Making the jaunt to Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted last Thurs- day, Jan. 24, the Eden Valley-Wat- kins wrestlers dropped a tough match, 43-35. Coach Dan Berg was not too distressed by the out- come. "We still had some guys out, but so did they. I guess it was a battle of two teams not at full strength." The match of the night was Cain Renner v Dylan Youn- gren, with Youngren coming out on top, 10-2. "Those two split with each other last year; Cain losing in regular season and winning the true second match in the sec- tion. It was a good test for Cain, and the score doesn't indicate how close the match was, but hope- fully Renner will come out on top next time," said Berg. The Eagles earned pins from 126-pound Zach Blonigen, and at 132-pounds, Hunter Mathies. Luke Kuechle, 160-pounds, won a technical fall, and winners by forfeits included Matt Schindler, 106-pounds, Logan Donnay, 113-pounds, and Tyler Donnay, 120-pounds. As the sectionals loom, the Eagles spend the final week host- ing Minnewaska Area on Tuesday, Feb. 5 (parents/senior/alumni night) before visiting Holdingford on Thursday, Feb. 7, to close the season. The Eagles overall record stands at 5-7.
