The meeting was called to order by Chairperson Swenson at 8:00 p.m. and a quorum was determined. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited. We are Proud… •We are proud of the group of Tri-County Seniors and Juniors who went on the PKM sponsored trip on Tuesday, Sept. 12 through Wednesday, Sept. 13. This tour took the students through the EERC at UND and the new Minn-Kota headquarters in Grand Forks, followed by a tour of the Milton R. Young power plant in Center, North Dakota and a tour of the heavy machinery that mines the coal at the BNI facility directly adjacent to the power plant. The purpose of the tour was to show students how our energy is produced and also the potential for very high paying jobs if they choose to work in energy production. Our students were very well behaved and never complained when the tour bus air conditioning failed early on in the trip. They represented our school very well and I would happily take them on another trip. Students that attended were: Ali Undeberg, Tucker Krantz, Abby Kautzman, Emmitt Lefrooth, Beau Spilde, Brayden Fossell, Walker Dembiczak, Kade Bass, Leighton Sys, Keoni Kindler, Mitchel Lindgren, and Kenzie Kostrzewski. Mr. Thompson was the chaperone. •We are proud of the teaching staff who organized the back to school Open House and Picnic. Many families attended and it was a fun night! •We are proud of Jaron, Daltyn, Julie, Shawn, and Keegan for getting the school ready for the beginning of another school year! •We are proud of last year’s Preschool class that won the voters choice for Colored Community Map at the Esri Users Conference this summer. This competition had community maps from around the world entered and Tri-County’s was a heavy favorite. Member Swenson moved, Member Burkel seconded to approve the agenda as presented.
