LakeBentonElementary School students presented their Elementary Spring Concert on Thursday, May 3 in the Lake Benton School Gymnasium. The program was directed by music teacher Marijane Borresen. Stu­dents from preschool through sixth grade took part in the per­formance…
Although the singing was over, the night’s activi­ties were not. The students had put together a surprise farewell address for Prin­cipal Dale Weegman, who will be retiring at the end of the year. Students held up letters by class that spelled out “LAKE BEN­TON ELEMENTARY WILL MISS YOU VERY MUCH MR. WEEGMAN.” Students who did not have letters to raise held Bobcat paws instead.
