4. Financial Report
Dorothy is having computer problems, and hopes to be able to produce financial reports for May within a week or two. Dorothy delivered a summary oral report of finances. There was an unexpected billing from Republic Services, and Dorothy will call them this week to question it.
5. Preschool Report
The 2019 Scamper was a success, raising a net of over $5200.
Lessons learned from this year’s Scamper:
- Need to plan an activity for kids while the 5K is being run.
- Need to have name tags for kids being left in care while parents run.
Two people who had asked for places in the 2019-20 preschool have not responded with definite registrations. There are still 4 or 5 places available in littles, and no seats available in bigs.
We have hired Sarah Walters to be an assistant teacher next year.
This month Joyce and the staff began to suspect that there might be something about the air in the Center that might be making Kristen and Maria ill. They have noticed a peculiar smell in the air at the Center. Joyce consulted with Montgomery Heating about doing an inspection of the furnace. They recommended some diagnostic measures to try before calling them out.

The board reviewed and edited the draft policy prepared by Kristen. She will prepare a final draft for approval at next month’s board meeting.
