Royalton School Board Briefs
In other business Monday, the Royalton School Board:
• Recognized the following: Paraprofessional Karen Kuklok for her involvement in the community plant sale. Had it not been for her spearheading the sale when the teacher who normally does it had to take an unexpected absence, the plant sale would not have happened, said Middle School and High School Principal Joel Swenson. The plant sale generated about $2,500; senior Justin Ring for developing a logo that are the Royal R’s — Respect yourself, Respect others and Respect our schools. Banners with the logo will be put in different areas of the school building during the next school year. Ring has worked with Tabatha Stevenson, Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) coordinator for the district, to create different posters and more; Elementary physical education teacher Aaron Meier for consistently making physical education fun for the students during the last 18 years through a variety of activities, such as soccer, softball, basketball, volleyball, badminton, track, bowling, tumbling, floor hockey, jump rope and line dance;
