Report from Daytime ASB Council
The minutes from the May 4, 2016, Daytime ASB Council were distributed. Mrs. McKenna explained that the minutes from each council meeting are given to the other council, so that they each know what is being discussed at each other’s meetings.
Mrs. McKenna discussed the purpose of the Council and the responsibilities of being an ASB member. She explained the role of ASB officers and informed the Council about voting in representatives at the November 2016 meeting.
Mrs. McKenna explained the rules to spending ASB funds. Ultimate approval of any expenditure must be approved by Director, Debbie Roberts.
Mrs. McKenna explained that the Daytime and Evening Councils are technically one; the Whittier Adult School ASB Council. Meetings are set at two different times for the convenience of both Daytime and Evening students.
Mrs. McKenna’s role is to organize and guide the meetings, but the ASB members vote on all necessary decisions.
Mrs. McKenna explained the events the Council has chosen to participate in, such as the Thanksgiving Food Drive, Christmas Toy Drive, and Blood Drives. The Evening Council voted unanimously to participate in both the Interfaith Food and Toy Drives.
Mrs. McKenna informed the Council that the ABE and ESL Daytime classes are taking place on the Cal Hi campus this year because the bungalows will be remodeled this year. To date, the students and teachers are adjusting well to this change.
The following Photo ID dates were provided: Oct. 11, 12, and 13.
