Back in the swing of things.

Hope all you families with students enjoyed the school break last week. We've been back just a short time and already the trip to California is a memory (but a good one!).

Tonight's Board of Ed meeting will be packed with activity. First, it's our Reorganization meeting, where we do a lot of required re-appointing -- lawyers, accountants, architects and many other vendors, approving the meeting schedule for next year, etc. We will also elect a Board President and Vice President for the year.

Then we immediately have our first "regular" meeting. A few of the highlights from that agenda:
-- Presentation on the Cambodia trip that Dr.. Kashmanian and several students and staff made, to participate in the opening of the school we helped build.
-- Reappointments of personnel for 2009-2010
-- Approval of bid for landscaping, grounds maintenance and snow plowing
-- Approval of contract with the YWCA, where they will continue to provide before/after care but they propose to pay a facilities use fee.

And other fun stuff, I'm sure. You can read the entire agenda by clicking here. You can watch online by clicking here. Or you can come on down to the Ed Center, 3rd floor at 7:30 -- we'd love to have you!
