Recruitment of students/ Enrollment
Email received from Rachelle:
Scamper was successful! Money is still being totalled.
Combining classes- It has been great for the kids. Some volunteers are finding it difficult to work with one grouping of kids solo. Also, there is a big difference from 10 kids to 12. Those 2 extra bodies really throw things off/can lead to chaos. I’m questioning if 12 kids in our space is too many to do a great job. I will gather more info and report back in June.
I was quickly running out of storage space, so I bought extra storage from Google1 for $20/yr
I have updated and attached the Health addendum. I changed it slightly for the next school year. Just reiterating kids who are brought to school ill, will either be sent home, or the teacher may decide symptoms are acceptable for school, and the child will wear a mask.
Open house went well! I have 7 signed up for 4/5s and 1 for 3/4s. May OH is 5/25 @ 530-7
Graduation 6/9 @ 930. I would like $150 for this event, please. Approved
EOY BBQ 6/11 @ 1PM
Thank you for the rock! And mowing!
7. Building Updates (5 min)
Emailed received from Rachelle:
Thank you for the rock! And mowing!
Could we hire someone to install flooring? Dorothy will look into how much it will cost.
I have concerns regarding the moss on the roof and the life left in roof. John will apply moss-be-gone to the roof.
Also, there are birds (or other animals?) roosting inside the roof. They are getting in through a hole in the eve by the front door. Dorothy will have a company come out and look to see if it is birds or bats and let us know what can be done. John discovered they are birds with a birds nest.
Blinds- I have attached a cart for the blinds. I chose a light gray color, but am open to suggestions. Please let me know if you’d like me to order them. Tell Rachelle to go ahead and order them.
8. Sign construction (5 min)
Discussion (Roger & John)
The check has arrived. BCCS requires that we announce on the website, email and facebook that they donated for the building of the sign.
Roger has found a place to order the wood at a “non-profit” discount. He is still working on finding the letters.
Roger will come up with options on letters, tracks and lighting to report back next meeting.
Ask Rachelle what color stain we put on the kiosk?
9. Celebrate Alpine Fall Event (5 min)
Discussion (All) Guest Andi
Andi did not respond to Dorothy’s email invite. Dorothy will send it again.

Jeanne and Dorothy
The “Tiny Free Library” will be put up in the next couple of days.
