                                  Note from the Principal

The elections were held for Community Council and the votes were recently counted by current Community Council members.  The new council is:

* Sarah Miller

* Ben Warburton

* Amanda Whitney

We will have our first Community Council meeting today at 2:00 p.m. here at the school. The public is always invited to these committee meetings and normally we’ll let you know with an agenda posted on the school front doors a week before the meeting.

It was great to have so many who voted; thank you for your interest and support.  Also, a big thank you to Gene Rolfe and Jeni Trainor who also ran but didn’t quite get enough votes.  Your willingness to devote time to the school is greatly appreciated.  I’m pretty sure there will be classroom teachers who would love your volunteer minutes/hours this school year, as they would for any interested parent volunteer.  Thanks again.

                If any would like to review the counting process or see the results, please notify me and I will be glad to sit down with you for a few minutes to go over that.

                On a very serious note, we are still on the lookout for the man who has approached some of our students asking them to get in his car.  He is an older kind of heavy set man with a goatee and glasses, white or silver hair, driving a darker gray Toyota or a minivan with wood paneling (the minivan has California plates).  I would just caution you all to make arrangements with your children who normally walk to school so they will be safe.  Also please be aware of this during the weekend activity here at our school (Adventure Challenge) as well.  Maybe accompany them or check with someone who will as this sounds like a very fun Saturday and shouldn’t be spoiled by a guy like this.

            On a personal note, I’d like to thank you for your support and feedback. We’ve had a terrific start of the year with Muffins for Moms and Back to School Night/Parent Conferences and soon the Book Fair Family Night (“hot dog” night).  I’m glad to get feedback from you, keep it coming. I know it’s helping me improve and the school as well.  It’s a real pleasure working with you all. Thank you!
