The Pella Community School board met Monday night. On the agenda were reports from Director of Instruction Lowell Ernst, and the principals of each of the district’s five schools. They also approved trips to the Iowa Thespian Festival, November 15th & 16 and to Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, December 6th & 7th for approval. Pella High Principal Eric Nelson says that the fall season has been a major success in athletics, music, and other extracurriculars. Nelson adds that they have a good problem in being so busy with all the success that students are achieving. The next school board meeting is scheduled for November 11th at 4:30pm.
