For starters, neither High School Principal Dave Hickman nor Superintendent Tom Vint are with the Aurelia District now, as Vint resigned his position to accept a new position with another School District and Hickman retired. Elementary Administrator Ann Sandine will fill the new position of K-12 Principal this fall, and the Superintendent's position is unfilled at this time. Aurelia school board members are working on a possible sharing agreement with another school district, as it has been determined by consultants that the responsibilities of the Superintendent in the Aurelia district no longer require a full-time position.
A big addition to the district last fall was the opening of the new fitness center, which is located adjacent to the north end of the high school band room. The center is open to Aurelia students from 7th grade - 12th grade. 7th and 8th graders must have a parent or coach present while they are at the Fitness Center, and high school students must have adult supervision present. The Fitness Center is also open to adult members of the Aurelia community.
The hours for the Fitness Center are 5 a.m. - 10 p.m., seven days a week, The cost of membership is $50 a year for a single membership and $75 a year for a family membership. The Fitness Center had its grand opening on October 7, 2007, and there are already 142 members, each of whom has their own card-styled key.
