The sale of Bill Gollings’ paintings, kindergarten registration and the recent Dining For a Cause fundraiser were some of the topics discussed at last night’s Sheridan County School District 2 board meeting.

The board approved the official contract between Whitney Benefits and the district to sell 10 paintings by western artist Gollings that have been in the district’s possession since the 1920s. The paintings are valued at more than $3.2 million. The amount the paintings will be sold for was not released at the meeting.

Also discussed was kindergarten registration for the 2015-16 school year, which currently sits at 231, according to Director of Elementary Education Scott Stults. He said enrollment is down seven students from last year and up 11 students from 2013.

Lastly, Don Julian spoke before the board about the Dining For a Cause fundraiser held at Frackelton’s last Monday to benefit Sheridan High School’s locker room expansion and sports medicine facility project.

In all, more than $41,000 was raised including matches from local companies Hammer Chevrolet and Sheridan Orthopaedic Associates.
