School board hears report on student performance

The Timber Lake School Board got a sneak preview of the school district’s annual Report Card from the Dept. of Education at its November 14 regular meeting. The board also accepted the resignation of Middle School English teacher Jami Kesling, effective at the end of the school year.

The Dept. of Education will publish the Report Cards for all districts on the DOE website next week but Supt. Dan Martin and Principals Julie Marshall and Danae Paxton showed some preliminary figures.

Scores for the testing done in the spring of 2018 for grades 3-8 and 11 showed Timber Lake School District above average in most grades for both math and English Language Arts.

“All Timber Lake staff are instrumental with the positive results on the soon-to-be released report card,” Martin said. “What separates Timber Lake from other schools is we continue to strive on correcting weaknesses while seeking continued growth in all areas.”

Homecoming

Randy Tompkins’ visit to Timber Lake last weekend was part homecoming to the place where he grew up, part reunion with people he had not seen in nearly 50 years, and part opportunity to share Vietnam War experiences with other veterans and friends. Tompkins wrote a ninepart series about his time in Vietnam, which was published in the Topic from Sept. 13 to Nov. 8. He encouraged other veterans to write their stories, even if they are not published.

Hoel appointed Deputy States Attorney

The Dewey County Commissioners appointed a parttime deputy states attorney at their November 8 meeting. State’s Attorney Steve Aberle requested the appointment of Evan Hoel, who is opening a law practice in Timber Lake. Aberle said there would be no additional cost to the county because he would reduce his salary and benefits by 25% and make that amount available for Hoel (rhymes with Noel). The vote to approve the appointment was unanimous. Hoel was recruited to Dewey County through the Rural Attorney Recruitment Program, a partnership of the Unified Judicial System, the S.D. Bar and counties and cities. Hoel, originally from St. Paul, MN, graduated from the USD Law School in May, took the Bar exam in July, and received notice that he had passed in September.
