Each February, MSBA sponsors Minnesota School Board Recognition Week to recognize school board members for their commitment to Minnesota’s public school students. The 2022 Minnesota School Board Recognition Week was scheduled for February 21-25, 2022.
We are living through one of the most challenging times to be a school board member anywhere across the country. We want to give a big thank you to our ONE10 school board members for all their hard work, dedication, and support over the past year. Your continued hard work through difficult times at ONE10 is appreciated.
Recent Events in Local MN Activities Results in Action Taken
Recently, we have become aware of some area school activities where inappropriate and unacceptable comments were made between student groups. At ONE10, we pride ourselves on showing great sportsmanship and being welcoming and inclusive at all times. We are very proud of our students and the way they present themselves. With that being said, we realize that we are one misbehavior away from being in the local news and on social media. It is important that we all work together….parents, staff, and community to help our students continue to make good choices and present themselves well with their actions. Many MN School supportive organizations have put together a document and proposed process to address these concerns. Memorandum
Weekly ONE10 Report of Positive COVID Cases Trends
The weekly Covid report from February is encouraging; 24, 19, 29, 16. We are starting to average about 3 Covid cases reported each day which is way less than our nearly 20 cases a day in January. Hopefully, we have seen the worst of Covid and there are better days ahead. Here are the current Covid numbers. We will continue to monitor our numbers and keep staff and students safe. Thanks to all for their understanding and support throughout this pandemic.
MN Legislative Session has begun….Feel Free to Advocate for Public Schools
Each year MN legislators look at ways to support public schools. This year, MN has a large surplus budget, which makes it a great time to resolve some MN school funding issues. Hopefully, the MN legislature will create changes that will make a difference at ONE10.

Unified Basketball is a Result of Polar Plunge Support
WHS hosted a Unified Sports Basketball Tournament on Wednesday. This is a huge hit at the high school and our ONE10 students do a wonderful job of showing support of all the Unified Sports students that compete at the tournament. The tournament is possible due to the funding from the Polar Plunge fundraiser. This year the Polar Plunge at Lake Waconia was a huge success. A Big Thanks to all that supported it by volunteering, plunging, cheering, and donating. Check out the pictures on the MN Polar Plunge website. WE Are ONE10!!
Enjoy the Winter Season!!
Thanks for All You Do!
