5. Preschool Report
Joyce reported on the recruitment committee work. We had two applicants for the teacher position, but one withdrew, and four applicants for the assistant position. Joyce will try to convene a search committee meeting within the next few days. Joyce would like to hold off hiring an assistant until after we hire the teacher, so that the teacher can participate in selecting her assistant.
We will need to buy some new curriculum materials, because we’ve been using materials owned by Char.
Rachel has scheduled a CPR class for Saturday Aug 25th, $30/person 8am-12pm. We will hold it at ACC and provide childcare. If we can get the registration roster to Rachelle, Rachelle will call the parents to notify them of the requirement and the schedule. Dorothy will get the list from Char and get it to Rachelle.
6. FFF Grant for Staff Development and QRIS Plan
Joyce, Dorothy, & Roger met with Linda Nelson this month, to receive delivery of the preschool formalization materials we contracted her to develop. We have completed the evaluation phase of the contract and are ready to work on implementing the recommendations. There will be some follow-on work after we hire the new staff for next year.
7. Merged calendar participation with City of Monroe
Joyce has sent RJ the iCal address and set up permissions for him, but Dorothy saw RJ today, and got the impression that he is still waiting for something from us.
8. Celebrate Alpine BBQ event planning
Albert Copeland of Ol’School (the band) attended. He and his band are ready to play on the 23rd. They just need to know when and where to set up. He has amps, speakers, & tent. They can set up at 2 to start playing at 3pm.
We agreed with Andi to buy 3 kegs, a few types of canned soda, and bottled water. She will have pork & brisket BBQ sandwiches, with sides to sell. She will set up her cart here from noon, to also serve folks who walk over from the softball tournament. We planned where the band and food cart will set up in the yard between the center and the water company buildings.
