One of the topics, which was origi- nally heard a couple of months ago, was starting to award letters for academic achievement at Sidney High School. Curriculum director Thom Barnhart said the plan is still in the preliminary stage. In November, he suggested at a board meeting that high school stu- dents with grade point averages of 3.8 or higher for two consecutive semes- ters be eligible for a letter winner’s jacket. Barnhart said he’s heard that some students are against the proposal. “The concern is watering down the value,” Barnhart said. Trustee Kelly Dey said, “Doesn’t it just foster school pride and spirit?” Board chair Ben Thogersen said he can understand both sides of the dis- cussion. Students involved in Montana High School Association sponsored activities such as athletics and music along with speech and drama receive letters.

MAKING MORE POSSIBLE Board covers etic topics of their class. Trustees agreed to hold a student survey regarding the idea and to also discuss the possibility with communi- ty members during strategic planning meetings. In other business: - Activities director Chris Lee recom- mended to rehire all coaches for foot- ! ball, cross country, golf and volleyball. The turnout of high school athletes for each of the sports this fall included 26 for volleyball, 18 for cross country, 16 for golf and 62 for football. Lee read reports from each of the head coaches during the meeting. Each coach has a desire to increase partici- pation during off-season training. Sukut said that band director Kilee Sundt reports that there is such inter- est in middle school band that a part- time teacher may be needed to help cover the classes. Trustees noted how important the music department is to the school district. “It’s an attitude changer of our school,” trustee Randy lversen said. Sukut said Sundt has recommended an individual for the position. Trustees hope that person could also, if possible, assist with choral classes. “If she’s asking for help, she must need it,” trustee Dennis Lorenz said. - The school district received letters of recommendation effective at the end of the school year for longtime teach- ers Yvonne Gebhardt for high school math and Patricia Wheeling for third grade. near Glasgow species list in Montana in 2011.

HUNTING AND TRAPPING WOLVES Wolves may be hunted throughout the state, with a season from Sept. 2-Sept. 14 (archery) and - Sept. 15-March 15 (rifle). Hunting wolves requires a wolf license, which can be purchased over the counter fOr $19 (resident) or $50 (nonresident). Proof of hunter educa- tion must be presented at the time of purchase. Wolves mayalso be trapped ($20 resident, $1 resident landowner; $250 nonresident) from Dec. 15-Feb. 28. Comple- tion of either the Idaho or Montana wolf trap- ping certification class is mandatory. Persons _ could take a combination of up to five wolves via hunting and/ or trapping. WOLVES AND PEOPLE Wolf sightings do periodically happen in eastern Montana, but currently no wolf packs are known to exist in the eastern side of the state. Many folks may be concerned that this wolf was harvested so close to Glasgow, and that it maybe could have posed a threat to human safety. Though curious, wolves generally fear people and rarely pose a threat. However, there have been many cases of human injuries and a few deaths due to wolves in North America over the last 100 years. The main con- tributing factors were habituation to people, conditioning to human foods, rabies infections, and the presence of domestic dogs.
