Updates from Superintendent Woelber 7/1/21

Greetings from Fulda School,
What an amazing weekend for the Fulda area! Last year we struggled through nothing happening and everyone wishing for normal and fast forward to this past weekend with great crowds and great weather! A big thank you to our Fulda community volunteers for making this weekend happen. There are so many things that go on behind the scenes and I hope everyone can take time for a thank you to these folks. We cannot make things happen in small towns without volunteers. It doesn’t matter who you are or what your story is, we need you to join up, step up and help make sure these wonderful weekends will happen for many years to come.

I enjoyed being a part of the parade and I loved being able to see all the K-
12 students in this great district! There were a few strangers to be sure and I can only hope and pray that they will someday become RAIDERS! I am glad that our community is becoming more diverse and it warms my heart to see so many new families working their way to Fulda.

I recently had a long-time patron who graduated from Fulda tell me that he
never expected his kids to graduate from Fulda and now the youngest child
recently enjoyed that honor. I really don’t want Fulda school to just “survive.” We have the capability to grow by leaps and bounds if we can get more families to see the benefits of being a part of the RAIDER FAMILY and belonging to a small school.

This upcoming school year, I will be a part of starting a “One Nation Club”
in the Fulda Secondary. Heck with all the political backbiting these days, I think Fulda needs to have a group of young people that meet regularly to get to know one another and celebrate all the great cultures in our area! How great will it be to learn what our Mexican friends and our Guatemalan friends, and our Karen friends have in common with our German and Norwegian relatives that made the same pilgrimage to this area over 100 years ago? Our district and this Fulda community is a fun place to be and a great place to raise a family. We need to celebrate that with our kids!

Thanks again to everyone who made such a great weekend possible. For
as much crap that hits us daily in this world, we say a prayer for those suffering. With all of that taken into account, our Fulda area community needed a break and boy did we get a good one! Have a safe and fun 4th of July weekend! In between family gatherings, I encourage you to enjoy neighboring small town celebrations.

Loy Woelber
