New Business
1. Mr. Price has recently attended several training resulting in the determination that the state is partially funding our full day kinder program and we will no longer charge our parents that currently have full day students. There is also a Read by 3 initiative that states students that cannot read by the 3rd grade will not be promoted on.
2. We received several bags of snacks for students from a non- profit that provides students with take home bags for the weekend. This will help us supplement students that forget their lunches and snacks.
