April 24, 2013



The Elcho school board returned it existing slate of officers when it held its reorganizational and regular business meeting this week.

The board welcomed Ann Maas and Mary Moore for new terms, after both were re-elected without opposition in spring balloting on April 2.

Officers re-elected for new one-year terms included Dave Visser, president; Bob Jensen, vice-president; Maas, clerk; and Kari Lazers, treasurer.

Jensen was named the district’s representative to the Cooperative Educational Service Agency annual convention; CoVantage Credit Union and Northwoods National Bank was inked as official depositories; and the Antigo Daily Journal will continue as official newspaper for publication of minutes.

The board accepted $600 in donations from the Elcho Parent Teacher Organization for the class of 2020 trip to Madison and fourth and fifth grade ball chairs.

It accepted the resignation of Michelle Kincaid as junior high girls’ basketball coach and hired Barry Chapman as head golf coach. Jim Pukall, the general manager at Bass Lake Country Club, will assist with the program.

The evening was also spiced by several presentations. Moore led a program on the impact of bullying in the schools and there was also a report on a revised math and language arts curriculum.

The board also honored Theresa Watts as valedictorian and Autumn French as salutatorian; and inked the 2012-14 school calendar. School will open on Sept. 3 and close on June 6, 2014.

A portion of the evening was devoted to a review of vandalism in the school forest located southeast of Elcho. The area has been the focus of a substantial series of improvements in recent years, creating a true outdoor classroom, but culprits have been causing problems, including shooting a bullet through the classroom building’s door.

District Administrator Bill Fisher said the Forest Committee, with help from concerned community members, will review ideas for monitoring the area and eliminating the problem.
