Page 2 The Star June 23, 2014 1 Helen Jean Patrow Dennis Frederick Helen Jean Patrow, age 72, was welcomed into heaven by her Lord and Savior on June 17. Helen was dedicated to fulfilling the purpose for which she was created. Helen was born to Helmi and Arne Saari in Rolla, North Dakota. Helen always had fond memories of growing up on the fam- ily farm. She attended a one-room schoolhouse (Monroe Elementary) before attending and graduating from Rolla High School. She went on to at- tend the University of North Dakota, graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Education. Helen's first teaching job was in Bigfork, Minnesota, where she met her husband of 50 years, Myron Pa- trow. Helen and Myron lived in nu- merous communities, many in which Helen taught. She and Myron settled in the Grand Rapids & Cohasset com- munities where Helen taught at and retired from the Grand Rapids Senior High School where she touched the lives of many. For the past 18 years Helen and Myron have lived in their home on Big Rice Lake where Helen loved to watch all the birds and animals that visited their yard and played in their lake. Helen's pride and joy were her five granddaughters. Grandma held back nothing when it came to taking the girls on their annual shopping trip to Mall of America, overdoing Christ- mas, and planning Camp Big Rice Lake. When not with her granddaugh- ters, Helen loved to travel, garden, shop for antiques and read. Helen was a member of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Cohasset, and served as a ministry coordinator for Lutherans for Life. When diagnosed with cancer in 2013, Helen decided to let her story be one that would honor God and bring others closer to Him. She let God's light shine through her in the clinics, radiation and chemo labs, on the Car- ing Bridge site that she authored, and finally in the Grand Itasca health care room where she passed from this life into eternal glory with her loving hus- band by her side. Helen is preceded in death by her parents Arne and Helmi Saari. She is survived by her husband, Myron; son Scott (Renee) Patrow; daughter Stacy (Brian) Hipsag; brother, Jim (LaDonna) Saari; and, five beautiful granddaughters: Lauren and Angie Hipsag, Morgan, Madi and Macey Patrow. Funeral services were held Satur- day, June 21, at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Cohasset. Pastor Chris Gorshe will officiate. If you wish to honor Helen with a gift, she asked that you consider a do- nation to either the Our Redeemer Lutheran Church Music Program or the Grand Itasca Foundation. Arrangements are with the Rowe Funeral Home and Crematory of Grand Rapids, MN. To sign the online guestbook or send condolences visit www.rowefu- Progress (Continued percent. Another way to qualify is by something Gallagher described as a safe harbor rule. Under the law, if a district can reduce their non-profi- ciency students by ten percent, they from Page 2) and again in the spring showed im- provement. Despite the positive arc, the school did not make AYP. The reading result was 71.39 percent and the math score was 75.83 percent. can ma~ f~YP. Another way to make '!For our school,~to see oar stu- AYP w~ in regards to students tiii- clents trend in a positive direction at lizing Title One programs. Gallagher indicated a school could only calcu- late students in Title 1, and if they made sufficient gains, they could achieve the required results. The fourth way dealt with the size of a re- spective district. Gallagher said some schools are so small they only report every two or three years. As an ex- ample, if a district made AYP last year, but did not have sufficient data to report this year, DPI considered the school as making AYP this year. As mentioned above, none of the schools in Rolette, Bottineau or Towner County made AYP, although some came very close. The following is a breakdown of how each district scored. Dunseith The reading result in Dunseith showed exactly half, or 50 percent, of students in Dunseith reached the de- sired result. The number was higher in math where 57.47 percent reached the proficiency mark. Dunseith also fell short in the graduation rate category, where the goal was 93 percent and the result was just over 71 percent. Officials in Dunseith have worked tirelessly to get the district to meet AYP. Although scores have consis- tently improved, the district has not been able to reach the threshold needed to qualify. That is one of the reasons why the school is becoming the first K-12 school in the state to try a four-day school week beginning this August. Superintendent Pat Brendon has said his district is willing to try new things to improve test scores. Belcourt A total of 52.88 percent of all stu- dents reached the reading goal in Belcourt. The number was even higher in math where just under 62 percent of pupils passed. The num- bers weren't as encouraging regard- ing the graduation rate. The goal was set at 94.5 percent and the result was just under 69 percent. Rolla Baumgarn indicated every student from Rolla who was tested in the fall the end of the year is a better gauge than AYP," Baumgam said. Rolette Students in Rolette scored over 70 percent in both reading and math but the results still were not high enough to reach AYP. The result in reading was 70.99 percent and in math the number was even higher at 74.10 percent. St. John The result in reading for students from St. John was 57.21 percent and in math the score was 60.57 percent. Towner County Over in Towner County the results were much of the same. North Star came close, recording an 85.71 per- cent result in reading and 86.61 result in math, but those numbers weren't close enough. North Star Superin- tendent Jeff Hagler echoed Baum- gam's comments. "I think we need to be held to some standards, but they need to be more realistic," Hager said. "To reach the required level isn't attain- able but something like this may help us get rid of being complacent in any way." Students in Starkweather even tested higher, but still were unable to make AYE The results in reading came in at 92.86 percent and in math the numbers were 87.50 percent.

On the side of kindness is everything that unites and uplifts us: the kind or encouraging word, the helping or healing hand, the invitation to join the group and to be a part of the great family of God. On the side of cruelty is everything that divides and debases: the mean or cutting remark, the discouraging word,the clenched fist and the hand which pushes away, the barrier to inclusion which says you aren't welcome here. There is love and there is strife. Love unites; strife divides. Love is kind; strife is cruel. There is no third option here. You cannot be indifferent to the choice between kindness and cruelty. We should pray that we steadfastly choose to be on the side of kindness. - Christopher Simon 32'x56' Steel Shop All concrete floor with hoist and air compressor.
