I hate to be the bearer of bad news (or good news in the case of my six-year-old daughter) but classes will resume at Bancroft-Rosalie on Tuesday, Aug. 16, with a full day of classes. That's 28 days away for those of you counting! Staff will return on Friday, Aug. 12, and Monday, Aug. 15, for teacher workdays. Students will see a few unfamiliar faces this year as four new teachers and two new staff join the mix. Welcoming . . .
Kailey Irwin was recently crowned queen of the Walthill Rodeo, which concluded with the final performance Sunday night. Irwin is the daughter of Mashelle Irwin of rural Walthill and will be a junior at Bancroft-Rosalie High School this fall. A lot of local and area families took part in the rodeo activities, including sophomore Cydnee Bonsall, who was also in the running for rodeo queen.
School wasn't out for very long for the summer before 15 students returned to take part in the annual driver's education class held at Bancroft-Rosalie. The instructional part of the course began May 23 and ran through May 27. Instructor was Roxanne Raasch of Bancroft. During the week, students had an opportunity to see the consequences of being impaired courtesy of goggles from the Cuming County Sheriff's Office. . . .
Youth from both Bancroft-Rosalie and Lyons-Decatur took part in a youth volleyball camp held recently at Bancroft. Open to third through eighth graders from both schools, the camp taught them the fundamentals of the game. The camp was held three consecutive Mondays for 90 minutes for all three age groups. Helping with the camp were this year's high school volleyball coaches as well as high school volleyball players from both . . .
