THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Crivitz School To Open on Sept. 1
Crivitz"The Crivitz School Board approved new hirings at a meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 16. Included is the hiring of Kelly Robinson of Oconto Falls as a high school education teacher.
Part of Robinson's contract with Oconto Falls required the payment of a $3,000 severance fee which is likely to be lowered, which the board agreed to pay up to $1,500 of it to hire her.
Others hired included Sharon Bernier as a middle school language arts teacher, James Ward as the CYI Tech Grant computer science teacher, Bryan Anderson as the CYI Tech Grant technology integrator/online and blended lab guide, James Olson as a substitute teacher, Buck Gehm as eighth grade basketball coach and Ray Sellen, seventh grade basketball coach.
Additionally, the board approved its district substitute list for the 2017-18 school year as well as the following volunteers/chaperones: Buck Gehm, Vic Gehm, Amy Grandaw, Elisia Kanikula, Gerrid MacNeil and Jason Weiss.
During the meeting, Superintendent Patrick Mans recognized retiring Camp Bird Director Keith Thorson for all his hard work throughout the years. Thorson thanked the board for the recognition and praised the work done by the Camp Bird staff.
During his report, elementary/middle school principal Jeff Walsh noted that new teacher orientation will be on Friday, Aug. 25. All teachers report on August 28 with classes to begin on Sept. 1. There will also be an open house on Thursday, Aug. 31 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Walsh also lauded the custodial staff for the work they have done to get the school ready for the year.
In his report, high school principal Jeff Baumann noted that fall sports are already starting to get underway and also praised the custodial crew for their efforts in getting things ready for the school year. He also expressed excitement over additional electives in the areas of computer programming and technology that are now available at the high school.
At the request of Mans, the board approved moving next month's meeting from Wednesday, Sept. 13 to Wednesday, Sept. 20 and the October meeting from Wednesday, Oct. 18 to Wednesday, Oct. 25 to avoid a couple of scheduling conflicts.
