6 I The Lovell Chronicle I June 11, 2015 BY PATrl CARPENTER A public meeting to discuss whether or not the school district is meeting AdvancED accreditation standards brought no sur- prises, just good conversa- tion, said Big Horn County School District No. 2 Supt. Rick Woodford. AdvancED is a world- wide accreditation organi- zation that accredits pub- lic schools throughout the state and beyond and pro- vides resources to help schools meet a set of sci- entifically proven stan- dards. The standards are designed to enhance educa- tion for students in five ma- jor areas of focus, includ- ing purpose and direction, governance and leader- ship, teaching and assess- ing for learning, resources and support systems and use of results for continu- ous improvement Thirty school staff and community members at- tended the special meeting held on May 21 at Lovell High School. About a third of those attending were community members. "I was happy with the turnout," said Woodford. "I think it allowed us to get quality feedback from the community and from our staff, as well." Woodford said some of the staff members attend- ing were not part of the district's leadership team and provided valuable feedback. "We accomplished what we were looking for," said Woodford "The next step is to take that feedback and incorporate it into our final AdvancED self-assessment score." Woodford said that teams have been working on the self-assessment all year. The self-assessment is important preparation for the accreditation pro- cess that will take place in October.

Mother Na- ture created havoc early in the month with a dam- aging cold snap that dam- aged leaves on trees, killed crops and flowers and caused many of us to have to replant fields and our gardens. The Big Horn Basin received over two inches of rain during the month of May, and Big Horn County was the driest coun- ty in the state. And now the weather has decided to warm up and stay, which is a good thing. However, with the mois- ture that we have had and then the added heat, we have seen an explosion of weeds everywhere, even in places we haven't had weeds before. The best thing to do is attack the weeds now. Don't wait for the weekend, take the time and kill them now while the weather seems to be somewhat stable. Use your weed eater, ask the neighbor kid who is out of school, or mix up some chem- ical weed killer. A word of caution, ALWAYS read and follow the label of the chemi- cal that you are using to kill your weeds. Most chemicals can be sprayed on days when day- time temperatures won't ex- ceed 85 F. Spray when the wind isn't blowing. I know, it seems like the wind al- ways blows in Wyoming, but you can find the time when it is not. Most chemicals only need about two hours of dry GARY EMMETr weather to getgrowingwith- be absorbed gary@gmail.com by the plants you are trying to control and kill. One of my favorite chem- icals to use to control the weeds in my lawn is Fer- tilome Weed Free Zone. It works great on dandil- ions and other weeds in the lawn. Just be careful not to spray too close to the flower beds, because it will kill the flowers. For weeds in other ar- eas where you aren't wor- ried about killing your lawn or flowers, you can use any of the Round-Up type of weed killers containing glypho- sate. Glyphosate is the ac- tive ingredient that kills the weeds. Spray now while the weeds are young and tender and are able to absorb the chemicals. Be diligent in whatever method you choose to control your weeds and it is easier to do it now rather than later. This column sponsored by Greenhouse Gardens.
