Le Mars School Board recognized
(LE MARS)--Praise from the mayor of Le Mars is being given to the Le Mars Community School Board of Education.
Mayor Dick Kirchoff made his personal comments to the board last night before he proclaimed School Board Recognition Week May 8th through May 13th.
Kirchoff says he'll will make a proclamation later this week for the Gehlen Catholic School Board of Education.
Le Mars Community Board of Education members are Patrick Murphy, Brenda Phelan, Mark Stelzer, Mark Hemmingson, Dan Smith, Cris Collins, and Scott Kommes.
Superintendent Dr. Todd Wendt presented Certificates of Appreciation to the board members on behalf of students, staff, administration and parents.
In other business, the board approved a new contract with the Le Mars Education Association that includes a one-and-a-half percent pay increase for the next school year. The board action also authorized contracts to be issued which teachers have 21 days to sign.
The list of 160 graduates for the Class of 2011 was approved. Fees for the coming school year were set. The only changes involve a city bus fee increase due to fuel charges and a hot lunch fee increase of five cents which will meet new federal requirements.
