We are Proud… •We are proud of the three new members inducted into the Tri County Chapter of the National Honor Society on November 3rd: McKenzee Johnson, Jade Spilde and Ellia Bass. They join our 2nd year members Brita Swenson, Sarah Budziszewski, Tucker Krantz, Beau Spilde, Sara Wollin, and Ali Undeberg. •We are proud of the 3 athletes representing Tri-County in the Special Olympics Bowling Tournament on Tuesday, November 7th in Thief River Falls. •We are proud of the Tri-County welding class for their work at repairing the school trash dumpster. This project offered a wonderful opportunity for the class to experience many facets of metal fabrication and repair. The entire bottom had rusted out and had to be removed, the remaining metal cleaned, angle bracing added, a new floor welded in, and paint added to slow the spread of rust. Students used the plasma cutter, angle grinders, cut-off saw, cutting torch, and several welders to complete the project. All seven students worked on this project to some degree. They are Trevor Johnson, Mitch Lindgren, Zach Undeberg, Kenzie Kostrzewski, Alex Johnson, and Parker Bayne. •We are proud of the students that attended the math contest in Bemidji. We are especially proud of the senior high team who scored 13th out of 26 teams with three of the teams beating us as AA schools. •We are proud of the twenty students that attended the Northland Honor Choir on Nov. 2, 2017. They worked hard in preparing the music beforehand by meeting twice a week during lunch, and were excellent leaders and role models throughout the day.
