Parent Group Meeting – February 21, 2018

Attendees: Rob Norris, Amanda Sheley

Old Business

  • Pirate Ship: Still not complete. More rails need to be added to increase the border and then additional mulch will need to be added
  • MASSIVE School Cleanup: COMPLETE!
    • Several families pitched in over the past weekend to clean the school from top to bottom. In addition, a professional cleaner was brought in on Sunday to help.
  • Folders: Parents are requesting folders for each child that are put in the children’s backpacks at the end of the day to hold artwork, notices, etc. All of the materials have been purchased. We will present the request to Dena Dickinson for review/approval/implementation
  • Business Cards: Idea was nixed. Website can handle

New Business

  • Clean Up Issues: Since the growth of the school is so vital to the growth of the school, our building will need to be used in many different capacities in addition to classroom functions. In order to keep synergy with all of the groups needing access, the parent group is asking that maps be drawn up showing the desired layout of tables, chairs, shelves, etc.
