Eagle View Elementary prepares for its move

Chuck Kajer, Managing Editor

When Eagle View Elementary School students return from next week's fall break, they will be in a new building.

The new elementary school building in New Market is nearing completion, with equipment already being moved to the new campus. Students who have spent the first month of the school year attending classes in the former New Prague Intermediate School building will get their first look at the new building during an Open House at 1:30 p.m. Friday. Students will be bused from New Prague to the new school where they and their parents will get the chance to tour the new facility. Next week, while other schools in the district hold parent-teacher conferences and students enjoy the annual fall break, staff members of Eagle View will be putting the finishing touches on their classrooms to prepare for the first day of school on Monday, Oct. 23.

Tim Rybak, the school district's Operations Director, reported to school board members at their meeting Tuesday, Oct. 10, that six truckloads of equipment and supplies had already been shipped to the new school, and teachers have been working at getting their classrooms ready.

In addition to the open house for students and parents, the Elko-New Market Consolidated City Council members will tour the building prior to their meeting Thursday, Oct. 12.

Bids awarded

Rybak and Tom Ashley of AmCon Construction Management presented a list of proposed bid awards for board approval. Bid Package 3 included a list of 34 contracts. Ashley had reviewed 18 of the bids and recommended 16 of them to be awarded, while two others be put out for bid. The remaining bids will be awarded at the board's October 23 meeting.

Discipline concern

Tony Brezina, a parent in the district, addressed the board during the Open Forum. He expressed concern about lack of respect in the district. Specifically, he mentioned an incident at the Homecoming Powderpuff football game where male students disregarded a warning from school administrators and dressed as cheerleaders.

Board members Tom Fadden, Dan Carlson and Bob Reed all agreed. Reed added that he felt the administration did try to crack down, But it was a matter of them getting pushed back
