Mrs. Holmberg's of the We e k:_ _61 Grade State Government Budget Update: The governor has backed away from two major components of his tax reform and budget plan, the business-to-business sales tax expansion and the homeowner rebate. He's still insisting on rais- ing $1.8 billion to back-fill the $627 million deficit and to invest in education and workforce devel- opment. The bottom line for K-12 education didn't change amidst the governor's budget shuffle. The next big question is what the House and Senate DFL leaders will allot for a K-12 spending target as they move into this week. As our House and Senate lead- ers continue to negotiate an acceptable budget, our local school board and administration continue to review our own rev- enue and expenditures for the 2013-14 school year. We continue to analyze data collected on pro- jected enrollments, assumed rev- enues and expenditures, as well as district goals, program initia- tives, and staffing needs. This is an extremely difficult process with financial assumptions based on "best case and worst case" scenar- ios. The scenarios are developed from state budget proposals and financial forecasts, and we won't have a defined response until late May when the legislative session ends. Mark Messman Superintendent, Eden VaUey-Watkins Schools March 22 Update Spring Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences: Eden Valley-Watkins Sec- ondary School will have par- ent-student-teacher conferences from 3:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 28. Third-quarter student progress reports will be available to be picked up in the new lobby. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend conferences. One of the largest contributors toward student success is parent involvement. Staff wishes to work positively with par- ents in order to help students reach their potential. Please contact the school office if you have questions pertaining to conferences. Snow Make-Up Day: Because of inclement weather conditions, school was canceled Monday, March 18. This student contact day will be made up on Monday, April 1. Please make note of this schedule change in your home calendars. Enjoy the spring weather.

Matt dem- onstrates leadership qualities that have been established in his mem- bership and leadership of the EV-W speech team. He's actively involved in the drama club, possesses amaz- ing artistic talents, and is extremely creative. The EV-W administra- tion, faculty and staff are extremely proud of your accomplishments.
