Riverview raises $900 during Pajama Day fundraiser

Riverview Principal Ann Fajfer reported at the regular meeting of the Wautoma Board of Education on Feb. 11 at Riverview that the school raised $900 during a Pajama Day Fundraiser. The money will be donated to the family of the child who was diagnosed with Cancer.

District Administrator Tom Rheinheimer informed the Board that one company is considering putting a bid in for the transportation services. They already came out to look at the buses. The bid should be in by the Monday, Feb. 25 meeting so that the Board can review it.

Wautoma High School Assistant Principal Bryant Bednarek complimented the maintenance and custodial staff in the District for keeping the school parking lots clear during all these snowy days.

The Student Council raised $253 during their Jeans Day. The money had already been given to Gary Christensen to be used for this year’s Community Christmas Project. Wednesday, March 13, there will be a community blood drive at the high school.

The Board approved all new hires that were pending as well as retirements and resignations.

The Board approved the following action items:

*Approved revision to Policy 8600 Transportation for second consideration.

*Approved school calendar for the school days lost to inclement weather. The Board decided instead of adding minutes to every day, they will add an extra day for every day missed at the end of the year.

*Approved A+ After School Program coordinator job description revisions.

*Approved school counselor position for Riverview Elementary School. This money will be taken from the General Budget every year to pay for the counselor’s salary, but there is room in this budget now to make this happen.

*Approved Redgranite air conditioning classroom project.

The Board discussed the WASB State Convention Reports. Rheinheimer also handed out the Redgranite Gymnasium air conditioning project bid summary and the revised and/or new policies for review. These will be discussed at the meeting on Monday. Feb. 25.

The next work meeting will be held Monday, Feb. 25 at 5:30 p.m. at the Wautoma High School Distance Learning Lab. The next regular monthly meeting will be held Monday, March 11 at 6:15 p.m. at the Redgranite Elementary School Gymnasium.
