Menu Masters (Hotsheets)
(Le Mars) -- Saturday evening's MenuMasters event raised a record $36,150 for the Le Mars Community School District as several hundred people enjoyed the fourth annual event held at the Century Hall at the Plymouth County Fairgrounds. All types of foods and beverages were shared by the 30 teams of MenuMasters chefs. The evening was filled with fun with several teams dressing in a theme costumes that were showcased. Winning the Best Theme Costume contest was the team of Dr. Andrew Geha and Dr. Paul Parmelee representing Floyd Valley Hospital. The two doctors had the theme of "Real Men Wear Gowns" and featured the doctors as patients wearing hospital gowns that don't always cover everything. The doctors had as backdrop a hospital screen, and were complete with IV's.
Another team that was noticed were the Primebank team consisting of Cole Sitzman, Jordan Sitzman, and Mark Schmidt as they were hoping for a three-peat of victories. Primebank won the food contest for the past two years, and this year the Primebank team took on the theme of the Triple Crown featuring pictures of winning horses that included Affirmed, Secretariat, and this year's Triple Crown winner, American Pharoah. Jordan Sitzman was dressed in a horse costume, while Mark Schmidt was appropriately dressed as a jockey, and Cole Sitzman was sporting the sophisticated look of a wealthy horse owner. Others teams that were noticed were the Channel Seed Chefs consisting of Keith Koerselman, David Christoffel and Bruce Manthe.
The three were outfitted wearing blue denim overalls with a yellow corn-print t-shirt, and a foam rubber corn cob hat. The booth itself looked like you were in the middle of a corn field with several stalks of corn to add to the decor. Yet another farm-theme was the team consisting of Scotty "the hotty” Thoms and Brad Jochum with a barn-shaped backdrop, and the pair of chefs wearing over-sized cowboy hats. The overall top winner for the best food category was awarded to the team representing ICON Ag and Turf with their "Pork Round Bales". Co-chefs Mark Narkon and Mike Jacobsma received the trophy which will be at the John Deere dealership for the next year.

LCHS Student Council is heading a food drive for Support Siouxland Soldiers at the October 9, 2015 football game with Sergeant Bluff. Support Siouxland Soldiers (SSS) is a non-profit organization that provides care-packages for deployed troops and food for veterans. The Siouxland community has over 18,000 Veterans. The Food for Veterans program, through SSS, provides a week’s worth of free groceries to Veterans and military families on a monthly basis if needed. Care Packs are sent to deployed troops. LCHS Student Council is collecting food items to pack boxes to send overseas and to restock SSS food supplies, especially before Veteran’s Day. Help us honor and support the veterans who have supported our country’s freedom by dropping off any of the following items at the LCHS office or bring to the football game October 9, 2015, and look for the SSS sign! Thank you for supporting our soldiers.
We are also hoping to honor all veterans and current soldiers at this game. If you have served or are currently serving our country, please go to the track in front of the grandstand during pregame to be recognized.
CLASS 3A DISTRICT SEMIFINALS (district 1 / sub-state 1) (at Le Mars) Bishop Heelan (18-23) 7, Le Mars (18-16) 3
Softball (LE MARS) -- What a difference a year made for Lexi Ricke, the sophomore pitcher for Bishop Heelan! Last year as a freshman, Le Mars hit her hard in their 4A Regional semifinal game and sent her to an early exit in a 9-6 Bulldog win. Ricke fired a three-hit shutout with seven strike outs Thursday night in the 4A Regional quarterfinals, allowing just four base runners in a dominant pitching performance that sent the Crusaders to the Regional semifinals with a 3-1 win over Le Mars at the Bulldogs Sports Complex.

The new school year is well underway, and we are quickly approaching the end of the first quarter on Friday, October 30. As you make education a priority in your home and encourage your student to do his/her best every day, you may wish to communicate with your student's teachers regarding their progress. you can do this by calling the school or sending an e-mail. E-mail addresses of all Le Mars Community staff are located on the district website at www.lemars.k12.ia.us.
Another opportunity to learn about your student's progress is to attend the upcoming parent-teacher conferences. Again this year, parent-teacher conferences for the Middle School students are scheduled for Monday, October 5, and Thursday, October 8, from 5:00-8:40 p.m. The middle school conferences are being offered earlier on the calendar than in previous years to provide parents an opportunity to visit with teachers about each of their student's successes and suggestions for improvement prior to the end of the first quarter. Please note that the elementary schools and the high school will continue to hold their parent teacher conferences on November 5 and November 9.
Establishing goals is key to the success of any individual or organization. At their September 14, 2015 meeting, the LeMars Community School Board of Education approved the following district goals for the 2015-2016 school year:
It was announced recently that long-time district wrestling coach Tom Smalley will be inducted into the Iowa High School Wrestling Hall of Fame on October 24, 2015. Mr. Smally was the head wrestling coach at Le Mars Community High School until the 2012-13 season when one of his former wrestlers, Shan Hessenius, took over the program. Mr. Smalley continues to work as a wrestling coach at the middle school and is a big presence at all of our high school wrestling tournaments. Congratulations to Coach Smalley for this great honor!
The new entrance to Jim Lorenzen Field is complete and looks great. The building includes a concession stand, ticket booth, restrooms, officials' locker room, Dog Pound, and tailgate serving area. Wiltgen Brothers Inc. was the general contractor on the project. They were fantastic to work with and worked hard to make up the time lost at the beginning of the project due to our hosting of the state qualifying track meet last spring. I want to thank the committee chaired by Mike VanOtterloo for helping with the design of the project. Other members of the committee included Bary Borchers, Curt Buss, Lary Johnson, Blaine Martin, Terri Martin, Brenda Phlean, Jeff TeBrink, and Deb VanOtterloo.
