Students of the month for September at Prairie High School are Dani Terhaar, honor student and Randall Wright was named the outstanding student. Dani goes beyond simply doing her homework. She always does extra work to make sure she fully understands the material. Randall is one of the most helpful students. You can ask him for help and with a genuine smile he will do it for you.

 Cottonwood Lions Club members worked with Ralph Stubbers and Roy Arnzen last week pouring concrete to upgrade the City Park Bike Path. 31 yards of concrete were poured last week to redo the southern loop of the bike path. The Lions plan to continue with the rest next year. The Lions, City of Cottonwood and the Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce provided funds for this year’s work.

Rick Johnson had an idea about building a picnic table to put outside our big glass doors on the cement patio playground area. Some of the children like to draw and play card games and don't have a place to do that. Also, at times it is nice for staff members to eat their lunch out doors. We would like to extend a special thank you to Rick Johnson for coming up with the idea, Dave Poxleitner for donating the wood and Jerry Richardson and his shop classes for building the table. Johnson plans to get tables built for the high school and middle school as well.

The high school Construction class is preparing forms for a sidewalk to be poured later in the day at the high school. The students are Lowell Enneking, Jared Johnson, Becky Gehring, and Philip Henry. Mike Kaschmitter is in the background leveling the bank next to where he poured the steps last week. Later in the day the concrete was poured with Lowell Enneking, and Daniel Sigler helping Mr. Richardson. Last week Ed Holthaus installed a security light looking down on the steps and a spotlight directed at the flag. Dave Remacle is building a hand rail to go in the center of the steps. This will be welcome improvement in accessing our school or walking to the gym from the lower parking lot. 

A couple more downtown decorations. At left is a witch who didn't see the pole in front of the Royale Room and Wilde Country Cafe and at right is the scarecrow in front of US Bank.
