Attorneys for Dr. Scott Crane, the former superintendent of Blackfoot School District #55, have released a press release to clarify certain statements that were made in court and to the press by District 55 agents.
Oral hearings in the case of Joyce Bingham v. Blackfoot School District took place Friday, Nov. 30. One of the points of discussion regarded an affidavit filed by Blackfoot School District Interim Superintendent Chad Struhs.
The affidavit stated, "I contacted Dr. Crane and urged him to allow the District to release the requested agreement [but] Dr. Crane declined to do so."
Students at the Blackfoot Charter Community Learning Center (BCCLC) brought in enough material in two and one-half months to save a tree. The celebration to recognize this achievement took place Thursday afternoon.
It's estimated it takes 1,000 pounds of recycled material to save one tree, said teacher Katrina Elliott. In 10 weeks, students at Blackfoot Charter School contributed over 1,000 pounds of material to recycle.
"We wanted to do a service project when we were studying about community," she said. Teachers Elliott and Amy Ogden headed up this project.
FIRTH â€” Fresh off of a disappointing loss to their neighbor Shelley the night previous, the Firth Lady Cougars returned home for a date with cross county rival Aberdeen on Wednesday evening. Firth showed no ill signs from the Shelley loss though as they sprinted to a 22-2 first quarter advantage and then kept the Lady Tigers at arms length for the remainder of the evening for the 58-39 non-conference victory.
"We really stressed being mentally tough and to not have a let down after last nights tough loss," Firth head coach Sharla Cook said. "I was proud of the way that the kids came out and started the game tonight."
Firth opened with 20 straight points before Aberdeen finally broke the seal on the rim as Taylor Wallace got the Lady Tigers on the board with :23 remaining in the quarter.
