Fertile, MN — The Fertile-Beltrami School Board held their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday night, April 13th. At the meeting the board continued their discussion of a potential hockey co op with either Crookston or Red Lake Falls. Both schools would have made excellent pairings, according to Fertile-Beltrami Superintendent Brian Clarke but because the district can only pair with one of them the board opted to co op with Crookston.

The Crookston hockey co-op is a two-year commitment for Fertile-Beltrami. Currently there are only about a handful of students from Fertile-Beltrami participating in hockey programs.

Under staffing items, the school board hired a new phy ed teacher and accepted a pair of extracurricular resignations.

Hitchen will continue to serve as the Dean of Students and Activities Director for the district.

And as the year comes to a close, Superintendent Clarke hopes that they can finish strong and resume some of the normal activities and events.

The Fertile-Beltrami Prom is scheduled for May 1st, which includes a grand march, banquet, and dance for students.
