Report from Daytime ASB Council
The minutes from the December 9, 2015, 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.
Director Debbie Roberts spoke at the Council meeting and informed students that the Adult School is restoring hours to the ABE and ESL programs. She also stated that the Summer School schedule is still tentative but that there will be summer school for four to five weeks and hopefully evening classes will be restored.
Mrs. Roberts also reviewed with the Council the ASB guidelines regarding the eligibility of students to attend a meeting. It is ultimately up to teacher discretion on whether a student is in “good standing” and can attend an ASB meeting.
Mrs. Roberts informed student that the spring Photo ID dates have not been set, but that she will try to set-up dates for a session in March.
Mrs. Roberts discussed the “Day of the Teacher” event with the Council. No longer will ASB be offering lunch and dinner and gifts to staff as a way of honoring them. Mrs. Roberts and the Council discussed less expensive ways to honor the teacher; for example, the students could write poems or make cards for staff. Mrs. Roberts may find another source of funding to provide staff with a meal but she is not sure of exactly how that will be done. She suggested the Council participating in this event by serving the food and playing the role as hosts.
The council voted unanimously in favor of sponsoring a Presbyterian Blood Drive.
There were no student concerns at this time.
The meeting was adjourned.
