SUPERINTENDENT REPORT

  • Celebrations

Thank you to the Student Nutrition Staff who made full Thanksgiving dinners last week at both buildings.  MOE celebrated with a parent luncheon which students and parents look forward to each year.

Students at the MS/HS have quickly learned new lunchtime routines with the return of entering their ID number into a computer and how they pick up their food.

Thank you to student clubs who helped feed the community over Thanksgiving weekend. Todos United and Chelan Project clubs helped at the Apple Cup on Thanksgiving Day while Mr. Gonzalez and FCCLA students cooked up meals for 10 families.

  • WSSDA Conference Discussion

Brad and the Board members attended the annual WSSDA conference Nov. 16-19 in Spokane.

Brad had the Board talk about what they experienced at the WSSDA Conference among themselves, then shared some of the ideas with the meeting audience. Some of the take-aways were:

  • All jobs and decisions in a public school district are BECAUSE of kids.
  • Valuable information was gained at every breakout session attended. The Board was grateful to attend.
  • Every year there is more valuable ideas, but there is a feeling that a pre-conference for small school focus would be a good idea.
  • The Board would like to add student representatives to the school board meetings.

Brad thanked the Board for their time in attending the conference.

 

FINANCIAL REPORTS

Bo shared the Year End Presentation covering where the district funds finished the year at and how the revenues were spent. He explained the ESSER funds breakdowns and stabilization dollars.

Bo shared the enrollment and financial reports, answering all of the Board questions.

 

BOARD POLICIES / ACTION ITEMS

Jeff moved and Erik seconded a motion to approve the BP 6112 updates as presented; motion carried.

Brad and admin team will talk more with the school nurses and ESD nurses about the policy and procedure.

The MS Leadership class did a survey of students to find out if there was an activity bus how that would help more students participate in CMS sports and clubs after school.  Brad is suggesting that the district try it out in January through May to see what the use would be in a couple of local areas.

Erik moved and Barb seconded to approve the pilot program; motion carried.
