school. We usually do this at back-to-school night. This year we will be sending home a parent
information page. The school-parent compact will be reviewed by the committee and sent at a

Title-one requires that all para educators need to be classified as highly qualified. Mrs. Bown

talked about how it is working. Kids have been taught what it means. The Blue Crew are
student leaders that help with activities and assemblies. We are having assemblies again but
are limiting the time we are together and are having them in two different groups.

8 – Review wellness policy: The committee reviewed the wellness policy. We talked about
treats, school lunch and recess time. Parent have no complaints on what we are doing or
serving. They love the Fresh Fruits and Vegetable program. Currently we have had to scale
back the organized PE program and parents are feel bad about that. We are working on a
remedy to this problem.
9 – Questions and concerns: There was a concern about our early out Friday and after school
programs. It is felt that too many kids are spending time alone after school and that we need
some sort of after school program. We didn’t address this yet but we are going to look into it.
Lori Dunn at the high school could be contacted to see if high school students could help. We
will see what resources and help we can find.
PIC held their red ribbon week activities. They went well. Officer Buege came to the assembly.
The volunteers were diverse and we had great help.
Chantelle Nay and her daughter are working well with the art program they are doing with
students once a month. It is part of our social emotional learning. It is going very well and the
students love it.
10 – Our next meeting will be held February 2, 2022
