Coyote Code Card Winners 

At Kimberly Lane we notice great behavior! Any staff member at Kimberly Lane can distribute a "Coyote Code Coupon" when they notice students following our CODE behavior. (Considerate, Own your actions, Do your best, Everyone is safe) If your student brings one of these Coyote Code Coupons home it's because they were noticed for showing CODE behavior through their positive actions. Be proud! Congratulations to: Macy, Mason, Nick, Sophia, Aadhavi, and Srilekha!

Around the District

November 2018 Legislative Action Committee (LAC) Update
At the November 14 meeting of the Wayzata Legislative Action Committee, senators and representatives-elect for districts representing Wayzata Public Schools were invited. Able to attend were Senator Warren Limmer, Senate District 34; Representative Jerry Hertaus House District 33A; and Representative-Elect Ginny Klevorn, House District 44A.

The LAC reviewed election results for districts representing the District (full election results can be found on the Minnesota Secretary of State website). The LAC will start meeting with legislators before the 2019 Legislative Session begins January 8 to build positive relationships with our officials.

The LAC reviewed and discussed the 2019 Legislative Platform draft, which is scheduled to be approved at the December 10 School Board Meeting. This platform will guide LAC advocacy at the Minnesota Capitol during the 2019 Legislative Session.

If you have any questions or would like further information, please visit the District Committees webpage.
