Thank you to the Kimball Fire Department for the donation of 4 vests for student crossing guards. With this year's 4th graders scoring so well on the math test last spring as 3rd grad- ers, Mr. Boran is introducing Kahn Academy to the students to try to challenge them further. There will be an information night for par- ents to introduce this program. The District Advisory Committee suggested holding a technology night for parents. This will be held in January or sooner, when some open time is available. The ele- mentary is continuing with their word of the month for character building. Elementary staffand Ms. Johnson have formed a staff book club. However, with schedule con- flicts, they will hold discussion on-line via Google Docs. Lastly, elementary conferences will be held on October 24 and 26, and Grandparents Day is on October 28th. Donita Knaus and Keith Markwardt were present to share the idea of possible Tax Abatement for a property that Ms. Knaus has recently purchased within the city. She wanted to know if the school board would be in favor of granting the abatement prior to putting the financial efforts into the paperwork process. The business planned for the prop- erty is a fitness center focused on health and wellness, massage and therapies for both youth and adults of all ages. All board mem- bers agreed that they were willing to consider providing tax abate- ment. A resolution will be brought to a future board meeting for for- mal adoption. Mr. Widvey reported on 6th grade conferences being sched- uled for October 24 and 26 as well. There will be a mock crash demon- stration put on by the local fire department on Friday, October 14th at 1:00. Homecoming week begins with some dress-up days on the 13th and 14th. Coronation will be held on Sunday, the 16th, with boys' volleyball and the pow- derpuff football games being held on Wednesday afternoon. The Homecoming volleyball game will be held on Tuesday evening and the football game on Wednesday evening, both against BBE. The Homecoming dance will follow the football game. Ms. Bonnifield and Mr. Widvey will attend an Achievement and Integration meeting where they will learn new requirements for receiving this funding. Part of the purpose of this program is 1o help close the achievement gag; given the improvement in te~ scores last spring, Kimball has made good progress in closing that gap. It is uncertain how the new rules will impact that progress. Lastly, the 6th grade has settled into the high school building very well, and is doing great. = Mr, Zipoy asked both princi- pals their opinions of the security of the buildings. Mr. Widvey com- mented on the updated security at the high school and the instal- lation of additional cameras throughout the building. From his desk he is able to look in on activ- ity throughout the building. Ms. Johnson noted that the additional cameras are very useful at the ele- mentary as well. Mr. Wagner reported on the track now being complete. Enrollment numbers are up for the third year; currently in the 740 range. There have been no major surprises with the start of the school year. Teachers are being pushed to challenge stu- dents. The focus is to remove lim- its so students can excel as they are able. The expectation, with the 4th grade math changes, would be to have them at a 6-7 grade level by next year (5th grade). Mr. Wagner recently was a part of a z Space demonstration. This is a great program that would moti- vate many students to work on STEM projects. A demonstration trailer will be coming to Kimball in the upcoming weeks. Several classes have already signed up to go through the trailer. The District Advisory Committee met on the 17th. The focus was mainly on the strate- gic plan for the district, Worlds Best Workforce, curriculum night, and some discussion on the lunch program.
