Carlton High School students will present "James and the Giant Peach" this weekend only at the Encore! Performing Arts Center in Cloquet. Roald Dahl's story comes hilariously to life in this delightful dramatization that reveals the wickedness of some, the goodness of others, and the indecision encountered by many when they are faced with crisis. A magical peach! An imprisoned boy! Insect friends! An incredible journey! This amazing adventure of James Henry Trotter will fulfill the fantasy of anyone who has ever dreamed of escape.
Both the Cloquet and Carlton Public Schools will be delayed 2 hours Monday, April 16, because of the ongoing winter weather. Bulldog Kids Care will open at its normal time, and there will be no morning preschool.

FDL Treasurer/Secretary Ferdinand Martineau explained that the RBC normally spends from September through November deliberating the annual operations and capital purchases budget, then adopts a final budget in December. About one and a half weeks after they passed the budget for 2018, Martineau said the comptroller — who basically acts as the band's financial director and who made the original budget projections — came to him and said she had made a mistake. She had not removed some money already spent from the income line, so the projections showed the Band with almost $12 million more than they actually had.
