IV. Counselor’s Report- Whitney reported that they are finishing up scheduling for next year, all guidance lessons are done, and they have started the master schedule for next year. They are also assisting 8th graders with preparation for high school.
V. Faculty Report- Last midterm is this week! Just getting stuff finalized for the end of the year.
VI. Principal’s Report- Matt asked the parents about how the parents feel about using lockers again. Parents are in favor of the lockers so that students have a little less to carry around but with limited access at before school, during lunch, and after school. It can also be given to only those students that ask for it. It does have the social aspect for the students; pros and cons both ways.
Chromebooks will be turned in on Monday May 17th by 8th graders, Tuesday for 7th graders, Wednesday for 6th graders, and extra students on Thursday and then all online and at home students bring them in on Friday that week.
VII. Adjourn until next year.
Debbie will send out the minutes from this meeting via email to be approved. Debbie moved to meet until next year, Val seconded.
Next meeting: Wednesday, September 15th at 5:00 p.m.
