Homecoming Dance after the game

There are contracts in the office for out of town guests and former LP graduates who plan to attend the LP Homecoming Dance. These forms must be filled out and turned into Mr. Lee by noon on Wed., Oct. 3. HT students are invited to attend and do not need to fill out a form.

The Lester Prairie Booster Club is once again hosting a Homecoming Parade on Friday, Oct 5, 2018 starting at 5:45p.m. at the Lester Prairie School. The parade route will begin at the High School and proceed up to the football field. The football game will follow at 7:00 p.m.

We are inviting Grades 7-12 and the other various school organizations and Athletic teams

to participate in the parade by entering a parade float. The LPHT football team will be playing against the Kenyon-Wanamingo Knightsso the float theme will be “THIS IS OUR CASTLE”. Each float should incorporate the “THIS IS OUR CASTLE” theme.

*Entering a float is for school grades 7-12 only

The floats WILL NOT be judged this year. Instead, the Bulldog Booster Club will donate to any grade that enters a float, $50.00 towards their class fund account.

We ask that all parade participants be up at the school no later than 5:20 p.m. so we are ready to go when the football players are ready to go down to the field. You will be provided with the parade line-up upon arrival at the school; look for Jackie Ruzicka.

*Anyone interested in having a float in the parade needs to register their float and should contact Jackie Ruzicka at 320-282-0997 or email by Wednesday, Oct.3rd at 3:00pm.

Should HLWW High School sports have morning practices?

HOWARD LAKE, WAVERLY, WINSTED, MN – At the end of Monday night’s Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted School Board work session, Board Member Charles Bush said he felt “compelled” to mention something he considers a safety issue.

“I’m very concerned about our extracurricular activities and early-morning practices,” he said. “I think that it’s an accident waiting to happen.”

Currently, the football team practices before school Wednesday mornings. Last winter, basketball players also had one early practice per week.

Bush said he is worried about the weather aspect (if there is snow or ice on the road in the winter), and the time of day. Students who practice early in the morning are getting less sleep, and they have an irregular schedule.

Board Member Michelle Heuer said she sees the early-morning practices as an opportunity to teach students responsibility.

“As far as the driving risk, it might be less, since there aren’t as many cars on the road,” she added.

“Well, I hope you’re right,” Bush said, adding that he is still nervous about it.

Superintendent Brad Sellner said he would see if the activities director, Scott Berning, is available to attend the October school board work session to discuss this further.
