The West St. Paul School district isn't saying why Henry Sibley Principal Robin Percival received a $64,590 termination package this week.
The West St. Paul school district paid Henry Sibley High School principal Robin Percival $64,590 to resign—but the district's not saying why Percival resigned or why she received a payout. The secretive termination agreement has rehashed old debates among lawmakers, lawyers and freedom of information advocates. State Rep. Pam Myhra, author of a 2012 termination disclosure law, told the Star Tribune that the school district was obligated to provide more information. "The intent of the bill was that taxpayers and parents would be able to have more information about what happened and the reasons money was paid out," Myhra told the Pioneer Press. The district is maintaining that by staying mum through the remainder of the school year, it is …

The process of animating Sibley teacher Peter Bohacek's video on the physics principle of work took almost a year.
A video made by Henry Sibley teacher Peter Bohacek that uses a grandfather clock to demonstrate the physics principles of work and power was recently chosen by the non-profit TED-Ed to be professionally animated for other teachers to use in classroom lesson plans. It’s one of only 149 such videos produced by TED, the group famous for its 18-minute Big Picture lectures, and so far 20 teachers from around the country have made lesson plans from Bohacek’s video. It’s not Bohacek’s first foray into using videos in the classroom. The former electrical engineer has partnered with Carleton College and University of Wisconsin-River Falls on a series of what he calls Direct Measurement Videos. The videos each show a creative take on a “classic …

The game saw both teams possess the ball and use the clock well but Warrior turnovers undermined two scoring opportunities to secure a 20-14 victory for the Spartans.
Spartan senior running back Jake Short scored two touchdowns and grabbed a crucial interception with two minutes to play to secure a 20-14 victory over Henry Sibley in the Section 5AAAAA playoffs Tuesday night. Short scored both touchdowns in the first quarter and the teams remained locked in a 14-7 battle until early in the third quarter when Sibley junior Stas VandenBosch-Romo scored with three minutes gone to tie the game at 14 apiece. Two plays after the ensuing kickoff, the Warriors intercepted a Nick Wanzek pass at the Simley 34-yard line. A Sibley score seemed imminent until Wanzek—playing safety on defense—recovered a VandenBosch-Romo fumble on the following play. The teams traded possession until 10:08 in the fourth quarter when…

The Simley Spartans softball team made it a season after defeating their Mendota Heights rivals 4-1 on Thursday.
Simley High School's softball team saved the best for last Thursday, scoring three runs in the top of the seventh to defeat Henry Sibley High School 4-1 in a match in Mendota Heights. In a contest that bore little resemblence to the Spartans' first game against Henry Sibley this season (a 10-9 Simley win on April 18), both teams showed off improved pitching and defense. But neither managed much offense until the Spartans started connecting in the final inning. Simley scored one run in the top of the second and Henry Sibley answered with a run in the third to tie the game at 1-all. That’s where the score still stood until the final inning. Simley senior shortstop Brittney Willaert singled to left to open the seventh and pinch hitter Sarah …

The undefeated Warriors were too much for the Spartans boys tennis team, who lost 7-0 in a match on Thursday.
Simley High School came into Thursday's match on the heels of a big 6-1 win over Bloomington Kennedy on Wednesday, but the Spartans were quickly brought back down to earth by undefeated Henry Sibley. Big wins at No. 1 singles and No. 2 doubles led host Henry Sibley to a 7-0 clean sweep over visiting Simley in Classic Suburban Conference boys high school tennis. Simley head coach Clay Sollenberger summed the match up in three words: "Sibley is good." Matt Schull of the Henry Sibley Warriors won a back-and-forth battle against Jake Short of Simley at No. 1 singles, 6-2, 2-6, 6-2. Short and Pete Johnson at No. 4 doubles forced third sets, but neither could score a breakthrough for the Spartans. “Matt Schull missed all of last year,” said …

Trailing 9-6 going in the bottom of the seventh, Simley's softball team stormed back for its first win of the season with a four-run rally — including a game-winning hit by Maggie Kadrlik.
It's only three games into the softball season, but the Simley High School Spartans are already making it an exciting year. In their last outing the Spartans lost a heartbreaker, falling to Richfield 6-5 after leading 5-1 heading into the bottom of the seventh inning. On Monday afternoon the Spartans turned the tables, rallying to score four runs in the bottom of the seventh to top visiting Henry Sibley 10-9 in Classic Suburban Conference girls fastpitch softball. Batting eighth in the order, Simley ninth grader Maggie Kadrlik knocked in the game-winner: A one-out, hard-hit single to right. “It showed us we can come back from anything,” said Kadrlik. “It feels really good.” It was Simley’s first win of the season. “We needed this kind of …

Too many errors and little offense doomed the Spartans in a Classic Suburban Conference tilt.
The Simley High School Spartans couldn't get timely hits and made several costly errors in a 10-1 loss to visiting Henry Sibley on Thursday. The Henry Sibley Warriors (2-2) scored early and often and led 4-0 in the second inning, 7-0 in the third and 9-1 after four. Simley fell to 0-4 on the season. “After the game we just talked about some mental errors as it relates to fielding, where to go with the ball, keeping the ball down on the ground,” Simley coach Stanley Winnie said. “We’ve been hitting a lot of pop flies and we need to work on that.” Junior pitcher Spencer Brooks got things started for Henry Sibley in the first with a two-out home run. The Warriors pushed their lead to 4-0 in the second. After loading the bases, Sibley scored …

Up by seven points with three minutes left, the Simley girls couldn’t hang on and lost their third straight game.
With three minutes left in the game, it looked like Simley High School girls basketball team had this one in the bag. The Spartans had led visiting Henry Sibley High School the entire game and was up 43-36 with three minutes to play. The Henry Sibley Warriors got hot at the end, however, and rallied for a 48-46 win in a Classic Suburban Conference girls basketball contest Friday. “We didn’t finish the game,” said Simley coach Tim Peper. “We’ve got to bounce back.” It was the third straight loss for the Spartans, who opened the season with nine consecutive wins. It was also the second straight Classic Suburban Conference loss for Simley and came at the hands of a Sibley team that entered the matchup with a 4-7 overall record. Simley led …
