State testing- can be a lot of pressure. We remind them that they are ready and able to do the test. Some students worry and we assure them that the test doesn’t determine their grade. 

Staff appreciation week- fantastic, lots of fun, lots of smiles. Students did a good job showing appreciation, felt good. Thank you for all of your hard work on that! May 17th, the RIF (Reduction In Force) meetings will happen on May 17th. Administrators found out about their positions last week, Geoff will be back here again next year. 

Staffing - teachers/grades will not be announced before June.

One parent requested the pie eating contest- PTC will fund. Geoff will consider.

 

6:15 - Teacher talk, 2nd grade. Mr. Lutz talked about the field trip to the Willamette Heritage Center; they really enjoyed learning more about Jason Lee and the Kalapuya Indians that they studied in class. Shared about fun things 2nd grade is going- engagement strategy. Alphabet letter focus for every day of the year (last 26 days)- today was career day…donut day is tomorrow. 3rd thing- 2nd grade writing- they start the year publishing a book and over the course of the year they put it together in a portfolio that they take home at the end of the year.

 

6:20 Treasurer report  - Numbers vary because some things may come in higher. The board needs to look at the budget and vote on it. Coral explained that she kept the fundraising money conservative. 

 

6:24 Board, voting: We have a list of positions from our Bi-laws and made a list of events and what we have to do to get it running. If we want to continue to see these events: Jog-a-thon, Bingo Night, Pancake Breakfast, Book Fair, we need more parent volunteers. The board can’t run them all.
