Wendt Returned As President Of Coleman School Board

Issue Date: May 16, 2019

At a long and intense meeting on Monday, May 13, Coleman School Board elected board officers and designated committee members for the new terms, reluctantly agreed to raise lunch and milk prices, for the 2019-2020 school year, renewed the food service contract with Taher for five years, approved numerous hirings and resignations, heard a detailed report on the recent "ALICE" school safety evacuation drill, discussed numerous year-end events, and had an update on the referendum remodeling/renovation project that included approval of an agreement with Miron Construction that sets the maximum price for the project at $14,297,878.

To comply with federal regulations, breakfast and lunch price will increase by 10 cents each, and milk price will go up five cents. Polomis said the 10 cents is the maximum they can increase in one year, but to meet the federal meal service cost/price requirements, they will probably need to raise the price of meals by 10 cents each next year as well.

In his role as District Administrator, Doug Polomis, who also holds the High School Principal position, explained the maximum price agreement with Miron includes improvements being financed with money authorized by voters in last year's referendum as well as maintence-type work the board has authorized to be paid for through Fund 46. Work on the Elementary/Middle School portion of that project is already underway.

By unanimous vote, Ryan Wendt was returned as board president, Jeremy Hoida was elected vice president, Joanne Nowak was returned as clerk, and Barb Krause-Klug was elected treasurer.

Action items included accepting resignations of Denise Madson as Special Ed Para Professional, Chad Behnke as a Middle School teacher, George Laitinen as Golf Coach, Derek Tate as Middle School Boys Basketball Coach, and Rebecca Rhode as Prom co-advisor.

Without dissent the board approved hiring Rebecca Weber as an elementary teacher, Dan Perry as golf coach, Stacie Seefeldt as Prom co-advisor, Shelby Kaisershot as Student Guidance Counselor, and Todd Olsen as Girls Varsity Basketball coach.

They approved an unpaid leave of absence for Kathy Bader for Jan. 13 through 31 of 2020, and overload pay of $7,667 for Derek Tate again next year.

The Personnel Committee had met earlier in the day, and the board approved all Certified Staff contracts and Extra Curricular letters of appointment for next year as presented. They also approved summer school contracts as presented. Copies of proposed changes in staff handbooks for next year were given to board members for approval next month. Committee Chair Scott Herzog said there are no "earth shattering changes."

The board approved FFA trips to Madison for the state convention from June 10 through 13, and to Woodruff for the officer's retreat from August 1 through 5.

Again this year there was an anonymous donation of $1,000 to be used as a scholarship from the Coleman Board of Education.

At the start of the meeting, in honor of School Staff/Teacher Appreciation Week which ran from Sunday, May 5 through Saturday, May 11, Polomis, on behalf of himself and Elementary/Middle School Principal Yvette Marshall, expressed thanks "to all the people who make this a good place to learn." He said during the previous week jackets had been given to all staff members, and he and Marshall distributed small treats daily.

Marshall was absent, and Polomis read her report to the board.

"The last six weeks have brought some exciting changes to Coleman School District," Polomis declared. He expressed thanks to the Coleman staff, students and families. "Even though we have had to deal with moving rooms, altering traffic flow, and teaching through construction noise, the education and needs of our students has always been put first."

Three teachers - Ms. Terri Huettl, Mrs. Linda Swenty, and Mrs. Courtnee Wickmann, needed to move from their rooms before everyone else, and handled the move very well.

Besides changes that have taken place in the parking lot and elementary kitchen/cafeteria, a temporary wall was built by the Cougar Lobby, which gave a chance for students to feel connected to the project. Students and teachers from junior kindergarten through Grade 5 were able to put their own handprints on the wall. In addition, Miron Construction provided the Junior Kindergarten through Grade 3 students with their own "construction" hats.

Coleman students participated in Ag Venture Day on Wednesday, May 8, with events led by High School Ag Teacher Cindi Wautier.

Kyle Johnson and Joanna Gross are leading a Step-Up Day this year, designed to allow 5th graders to experience Middle School for a day with a Middle School buddy, a student in 6th, 7th or 8th grade who was selected by a teacher. They will learn the Middle School routine, meet the teachers, and get a sense of what Middle School is really like.

The last Elementary PBIS initiative for the year will be a Field Day on Tuesday, June 4, when students will participate in several outside stations to celebrate positive academic and social behavior throughout the school year.

Fitness Day for all students, led by Mr. Skrupky and Mr. Peters, will be on Tuesday, May 28. The Mount Olympus Field Trip will be on Thursday, May 30. A Cartonera Family Picnic is planned for Friday, May 31 for both Elementary and Middle School families. Stepping up ceremonies for 8th graders is on Wednesday, May 29 and Junior Kindergarten on Friday, May 31.

Middle School Students of the Month are Audrey Rabitz and Conner Markiewicz.

Summer School begins on Monday, June 10, and the board was told enrollment numbers are up this year. With renovations underway in the Elementary/Middle School Building, all summer school classes will be in the High School wing.

Other upcoming events include the annual Fine Arts Night and Music Boosters Spaghetti Dinner, which Polomis referred to as one of his favorite days of the year, will take place on Wednesday, May 22, starting at 4 p.m.

The annual FAA plant sale will start on Wednesday, May 22.

Scholarship Night, another favorite event for Polomis, was to be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 15. Polomis commented it is always impressive to see the number of community members involved.

Final Exams for High School underclassmen will be on Monday, June 3, and the last day for all students other than High School seniors will be a full day on Tuesday, June 4. High School Graduation is Saturday, May 18 at 11 a.m.

The Memorial Day Celebration will be held on Monday, May 27 at 10 a.m. in the High School gymnasium.

Polomis thanked Mrs. Rebecca Rhode, Mrs. St. Louis and the Junior Class for creating a memorable prom, with the theme, Garden Lights.
