Statewide Adverstising

SE soccer players will have the chance to get their kicks again

August 5th, 2010

Out with the old, and in with the new. Sibley East’s Board of Education, Monday, dissolved a one-year-old cooperative sponsorship agreement to offer soccer with Gibbon-Fairfax-Winthrop (GFW) and Glencoe-Silver Lake School Districts. Sibley East had to approve dissolving the three-district cooperative because GFW had chosen to withdraw from cooperatively sponsoring the program.

However, Sibley East students will continue to have the opportunity to play soccer as a school sport in Grades 7-12. The Board of Education unanimously approved cooperatively sponsoring soccer with Glencoe-Silver Lake. Last year, Sibley East had 14 boys and two girls participate.

In other business, the Board of Education:

• Hired Stephanie Bandas as an Early Childhood Family Education teacher and Todd Iverson as B squad boys basketball coach

• Accepted an anonymous $1,000 donation for elementary SMART board speakers.

• Approved the 2010-2011 student handbooks.
