Report (Rachelle, Joyce & Melissa)
Recruitment of students/ Enrollment
Still lots of room for more students.
Rachelle reports that there are a couple of local people littering the outside of the center at night while using the wifi. She has posted signs asking them to not leave trash, cigarette buts, etc. but it has not improved. The Board isn’t opposed to the community using the wifi but they need to be respectful of the center. The Board decided to change the wifi password and only give it to those who sign an agreement to be respectful of the property.
Rachelle reports that a group of people who use the facility monthly for free are not cleaning up after themselves and are allowing a child to play with the Preschool toys and writing on papers that should not be altered. The Board drafted and approved a letter to the group asking them to clean up after themselves and not allow the child to disrupt the organization of the Preschool.
Rachelle has requested $100 for a new Marble Maze. The Board approved.

From 12/14/2022 Meeting: John reports that on Monday 12/5 they mailed a letter to all the Alpine Water Company share-owners and tenant-users. It discussed some recent adverse events for the Water Company and calls for a co-op meeting on Thursday, January 12th, 2023.
Rachelle and John will be representing ACC at this meeting, as part of their service on the AWC board. Part of this meeting will be the discussion of raising the base rate for water service.
