A concern was brought up regarding the consistency of communication, primarily for elementary age students. People have become used to paper notes going home with students. Facebook is frequently used, but not everyone has Facebook, so there is a need to determine a better way to communicate events with parents.
There was a sports coop meeting discussing scheduling of games and working around concerts in December.
Mrs. Carr talked about the lull between sports seasons ending and getting into full swing this next week. The hospital fundraiser has been postponed with no new date at this time. Drama wrapped up on Monday with their Dinner Theatre which was a great success. 150 tickets were sold for the meal and and additional tickets were available for the play only.
A recommendation to approve the World’s Best Workforce Summary was presented. This is an annual report that must be presented to MDE by December 15th. Motion to approve Johnson, second Mortenson. Motion carried.
Superintendent Jaszczak talked about the live streaming of events in the auditorium. He will be looking into that more. MSBA is January 16 & 17 and he was wondering who was interested in attending. Parking lot addition along with the arena parking lot repair is also being looked into with hopes of starting this coming summer.
Next meeting is December 18th 2019 along with the Truth and Taxation meeting.
Motion to adjourn by Ristad, second by Mortenson. Motion carried.
