Mary Libbesmeier, Joyce Libbesmeier, and Rhonda Libbesmeier were present to share their concerns with having been asked to remove their concession stand from the softball tournament held the last weekend of June. The board listened to their concerns, and assured them that things will be handled differently going forward.

Bob Merchant, president of the Sports Boosters reiterated concerns raised by that group on March 31st. The group is not satisfied with the initial response they received from the school board and are looking for a priority list of district activity needs and a complete list of activity records, so that they can move forward with getting banners ordered. It is their hope that communications with Community Education can be reestablished moving forward. Mr. Wagner suggested that the two of them meet to discuss some of these concerns outside of a public board meeting.
