City/School Election Update
With only one candidate, Incumbent Board Member Justin Printz, the school will not have to be involved in the election in April. Printz will be sworn in for a second term at the School Board’s July meeting.
On the city side, however, Randy Stalcup is unopposed for the Ward 2 seat so will not be on the ballot. There are contested races in the other two wards, so the April election will offer choices for the city council seats in Ward I and III.
Incumbent Barb Strozewski is being challenged by Clyde Gullickson, a prior council member in Ward I.
In Ward III, incumbent Barb Bryan will face Karla Schepler for the council seat.
The deadline for registration to vote in the April 8 election is March 24. All residents in Wards I and III are encouraged to get registered if they are not currently registered.
Students Study Rainforests
On Wednesday the students of the Edgemont School were treated to some special visitors from the Wonders of the Rain Forest Program. The animals included Hissing Cockroaches, a tarantula, 2 types of lizards, a snake and a Macaw. The kids loved the interactions with the animals. Some of the teachers however wouldn’t stay in their seats! The handler taught the kids about each animal and carried them around so the kids could get a close look at the animals. She told the kids how she cares for each and how she handles the animals. It was an enjoyable break for the classroom for most of the kids, I’m not so sure about the teachers!
