2 I The Lovell Chronicle I August 19, 2010 www. LovellChronicle.com Summer's over, school starts in Dist. No. 1 Wednesday BY BRAD DEVEREAUX For teachers, students, parents and others, the summer of 2010 may have gone too fast. However, it is a fact that school starts this week in Big Horn County School District No. 1, and staff is scrambling to get ev- erything ready for when stu- dents hit the halls Wednes- day, Aug. 25. The district communi- ty came out to help move fur- niture and equipment Sat- urday, Aug. 7, from Rocky Mountain High School in By- ron to the Rocky Mountain Junior Senior High School in Cowley. Teachers have spent the past week moving into their classrooms at the new school. As of Monday, a few rooms looked classroom ready, but most were still filled with unpacked boxes. Principal Tim Winland said teachers were brows- ing furniture left at Rocky Mountain High School and Rocky Mountain Middle School and taking a few things with them to the new facility. For the upcoming year, tices were held in the new gymnasium starting Mon- day, football practices are being held in Byron while construction is completed on the track that surrounds the Cowley field. Because of the construc- tion, the district will hold the first few home games in Byron, but Simmons said they plan to have the homecoming football game in Cowley. The concessions area in Cowley is also yet to be finished, he said. Landscaping continues outside the building and theatrical lighting and the stage sound system was be- ing installed this week, Sim- mons said. While the school has come a long way in recent months of construction, Simmons said it would take about a year to test all of the facility's systems during four seasons. PRINCIPAL'S PERSPECTIVE Principal Winland said teachers and staffhave been doing their best to move in and set up the building While a few teachers have nearly completed their classrooms, most are still waiting to be transformed from empty spaces into learning environments. A row of desks sits in the hallway of the school, waiting to be brought inside. the district Will continue to wle nt.vctors are still heat RMHS in Byron be- cause several departments will still be housed there in- cluding special education, technology and transpor- tation. Those departments will eventually move to the new administration build- ing, scheduled for comple- tion in late 2010. RMMS will be shut down complete- ly for the school year, Sim- mons said. In the new building, books are in the library, phone and Internet was in- stalled last week, and the kitchen received their food license from the state in early August. The kitchen will receive another inspec- tion this month before it is set for the school year, Sim- mons said. While volleyball prac- working in the same space. "We're trying to coex- ist," Winland said. Winland mentioned a few features of the new school that will change the way the stelff does business. The school features a mag- netic door lock system that allows administrators to lockdown the school from a central location. A surveil- lance system with 16 camer- as feeds into the main office so administrators can keep tabs on all areas of the prop- erty on recorded video. Even the school's new PA is a wel- come change, Winland said. At RMHS, the PA did not feed every classroom and was made up of old equip- ment. The school is hooked to RMES and the district ad- min offices by fiber connec- tions, and the phone system is integrated so calls can be transferred among the dif- ferent buildings. There is a phone in every room, which is an upgrade from the for- mer high school where some teachers had to use two-way radios to stay in touch, Win- land said. Winland said the big- gest challenge at the start of this school year will be get- ting staff together and fig- uring out routines and pro- cedures to make the school run well and to help stu- dents make a smooth tran- sition. Details to be talked about include managing two lunch periods and adjusting to a eight-period schedule for all students. With construction go- ing on in some of the meet- ing spaces of the school, even getting together to talk about those procedures could be a challenge, he said. Staff were required to be at school Wednesday. Despite the challenges, Winland said he has heard mostly positive comments about the rooms and the school in general. High school teacher Geranne Rasmussen was ahead of most teachers Mon- day, with books filling her bookshelves and cupboards filled with her supplies. Her mother helped her to get the room ready for the school year. Rasmussen said the new building is great and she is excited for the year to begin. "It's almost like a fresh start," she said, adding that now the district can focus on education instead of spend- ing a lot of time on facili- ties. She said she likes that her classroom is a little big- ger than her previous room, the adequate storage and natural lighting throughout the building. The two new gymnasiums will be great for students and the com- munity. "I think the facility will boost school spirit," she said. Outside her window is a beautiful view of the Big Horn Mountains, wfiich is nice, Rasmussen said. At RMES, principal Kar- ma Sanders said initial en- rollment looks to be slight- ly up this year, with a few new families bringing their children to the district. The school hired several new part-time aids to help with the increase in students. Teachers began Wednes- day, and the building had been pretty quiet before then, Sanders said, except for a few small projects that were carried out. Virginia Kay Brosius Oct. 20, 1940 - Aug. 13, 2010 Virginia Kay Brosius, 69, of Lovell died peacefully in her sleep at the New Ho- rizons Care Center in the early morning hours on Fri- day, Aug. 13, 2010.

She struggled with this condi- tion as her voice was re- duced to only a whisper from that point on in her life.

She liked going to the Big Horn and Pryor Mountains to see the beautiful wildflowers and abundant local wildlife. Vir- ginia enjoyed dancing and country music, especially fiddle and violin.

After Wayman's death, she moved back to the home on Third Street where she remained until just a couple of weeks before her death. Bernita wasn't afraid of work and spent many a day out working the farm with her husband and family. Friends and family were al- ways welcome at her home. Whenever anyone showed up around meal time, they were always invited to stay. When she still lived on the farm, you could be sure there would be fried potatoes and fresh bread at almost every meal. Besides spending time with her family, Bernita really enjoyed her friends. There was a group of wom- en that had formed a little club. They celebrated each other's birthdays, joined for dinners and often got to- gether to play games. She also enjoyed peacocks, hav- ing raised them on the farm. She had many pieces of jew- elry and decorative items of these in her home. Bernita is survived by crafts and sewing, espe- cially quilting. She made a special quilt by hand for each of her children. She loved Lovell and when she would travel to visit her children, she would always be so happy to return to her beloved home and town and her many special friends, especially Rena Croft, Su- zie Winterholler, Alma Jol- ley and Emily Brandt. She was so grateful to them for their love and support. She was preceded in death by her parents; hus- band Jimmy Lee Brosius and daughter Carol.
