Education

  • School Budget Adopted

  • New Lights, Scoreboard For Rams

    The Glenwood Community School district has completed a $254,000 overhaul to the lights at Ram Memorial Field and A.C. Nuckolls Field that will substantially improve safety at two of the district’s most frequently used fields.

     

  • The Principal Penguin

        Northeast Elementary School Principal Joan Crowl made good on a promise to her students Thursday.

        Last fall, Crowl promised if and when her students met a goal of reading 50,000 books, she would  spend a day in an animal or bird costume. Northeast students surpassed their reading goal earlier this month, so Thursday, Crowl donned a penguin suit and greeted her students in the cafeteria during the noon lunch hour.

  • More Sharing For Fremont-Mills, Sidney?

    TABOR - Representatives from the Sidney and Fremont-Mills boards of education are scheduled to meet in Tabor tonight (Wednesday, Feb. 23) to discuss opportunities to expand the sharing of resources between the two school districts.

    The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the Fremont-Mills School Media Center.

    The two districts, both members of the Corner Conference, currently share resources and expenses in several areas, including transportation, maintenance and business services.

  • Embray Answers ISL Questions

    The fact just a handful of voters turned out for a public discussion of the economics and impact of the Instructional Support Levy (ISL) going before district voters on Feb. 1 wasn’t a discouraging sign for Glenwood Superintendent Devin Embray, who presented the district’s plan for the ISL at the meeting held at the Glenwood Golf Course last Wednesday.

  • New Bus Barn Coming Soon

        The Glenwood Community School District has wrapped up the purchase of a parcel of land that will serve as the future home of the district’s bus barn and maintenance facility.
        The district completed the $300,000 purchase of the former Evans Equipment property located at 601 Railroad Avenue on Dec. 1. The district plans to transition the current bus and maintenance facility, dubbed the “bus barn” and located adjacent to Northeast Elementary School, to the new site over the next three months.

  • Third Time Is The Charm

    The third time did indeed turn out to be the charm for the Glenwood Community School District Instructional Support Levy (ISL).

    The special levy, which will help fund the district’s curriculum needs, passed by a narrow 51-49 percent margin last Tuesday. The levy received 868 “Yes” votes and 839 “No” votes.

  • Third Time The Charm?

       The Glenwood Community School District is hoping the third time is the charm for the Instructional Support Levy.
        After the two previous attempts failed to pass among district voters, Glenwood is again seeking permission to collect more than $700,000 in additional tax revenue to support learning needs and curriculum improvements in the cash strapped district. The ISL measure will be put to a district-wide vote in February.

  • Green Light For East Mills

        By a margin of nearly 6-to-1, voters in the Malvern and Nishna Valley Community School Districts approved a reorganization plan that will have the two districts merging as the East Mills School District next July.

  • East Mills School District?

    HASTINGS - The Malvern and Nishna Valley School Boards held a pair of public forums on Monday to discuss the two districts’ proposed reorganization which will be put to a public vote Dec. 7.

        The two meetings, which ran consecutively Monday in Nishna Valley’s Library and East Mills High School’s Library, were arranged to provide an opportunity for the district’s patrons to ask questions, share thoughts and discuss the process of reorganization.
