STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE REPORT

 

Mia Patterson said that ASB sweatshirts arrived. The 2011 seniors are looking at selling tie-dyed shirts as a fundraiser. One of the shirts will be green, black and white and could be considered a spirit shirt. The money from this fundraiser would go toward the senior party.

SUPERINTENDENT
REPORT

 

Mr. Green said that summer work is continuing with crews working hard to clean the buildings.  The WMS gym steel roof was installed and looks good. The new telephone system will be installed on or before August 10th.  Bill Woodard asked about the break-in at the storage area by the stadium.  Mr. Green said that everything but the scoreboard controller was recovered.  It appears it was the same suspect as last year's bus arson.  Paul Huddleston has been working hard to update hoops and the locker room area with the help of parents. He wants to start the year off the year with this area looking better as a positive motivation for students.

CORRESPONDENCE

 

Caitlyn Cordrey and Emily Tricola sent thank you notes for the scholarships they received. The Board reviewed a letter of thanks from them to the Cowlitz Truancy Board volunteers.  Mr. Green asked Board members who wished to attend a WSSDA workshop called the Changing Face of School Finance, to let Tegan know and she would make the arrangements. Bill Woodard asked that Stacy Brown give the Board a briefing when she knows all the details of the new school finance rules, so that the Board can save some money by not attending the workshop.
