HUGO — The Hugo School board sanctioned a new PTO for the middle school and the high school principal reported on water leaks in Monday night’s meeting.
Middle school principal Glenn Martin was happy to report that a new Parent Teacher Organization has formed with more than 20 in attendance at the last meeting. He said he is glad to see more parent involvement at the school.
Debbie Golden, high school principal, reported problems with leaks due to Monday’s heavy rainfall. Four classrooms experienced water seeping in from the foundation and students were moved to other parts of the school as the water was pumped out.
She also announced all 120 tickets to the Feb. 23 “A Night of Theater” performance are sold out, but tickets for the Monday, Feb. 22 dinner show are still on sale. The price is $5 for children 12 and under and $8 for everyone else and includes an Italian dinner, musical entertainment and performances of scenes and monologues by the high school drama class. Dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. with the show at 7:30 p.m. To buy a ticket, call the high school at 326.9648.
Golden commended all students who recently placed in various livestock shows.
School board members enquired about Lauren Smith, the student chosen to page in Washington, D.C. this semester. Golden said she is doing well and announced three other students will be going to Washington, D.C. to page for one week.
Elementary school principal Nancy Welch said evaluations are ongoing for each grade level. She said they are making predictions based on data they are compiling about students’ learning abilities. They will be talking to students one at a time to learn where they are struggling and what is working for them. Parent/teacher conferences are Feb. 9 and 11.
