Report from Daytime ASB Council
The minutes from the December 17, 2013, 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. Roberts and Mrs. McKenna were so pleased to see such an improved in the student turn-out for the ASB meeting. Mrs. Roberts had encouraged all the teachers to promote the meetings with their students.
The Council voted on how to celebrate Day of the Teacher. The Council unanimously agreed to offer the teachers a celebration which will include food, drinks, and dessert. They also unanimously agreed to purchase small gifts for each teacher.
Mrs. Roberts suggested that after each teacher receives a Photo ID announcement, that they post it in a very visible place within the classroom. In addition, the teachers will be encouraged, by Mrs. Roberts, to promote student participation in this activity.
Mrs. Roberts explained some changes in taking the GED exam. Each section can be taken separately for $35. She stated that she was not sure how long after a student passes one section, do they have to pass all four sections.
The Council was informed that the teachers had requested making ASB meetings shorter. The Council will make an effort to stay focused; therefore, shortening the time of each ASB meeting.
It was brought-up that students should research and bring in their ideas regarding a teacher gift for Day of the Teacher. Having several ideas proposed early and with the specifics; such as cost etc., makes it easier to make a decision on a gift.
Update regarding staff promotion of the Student IDs.
The next ASB Evening meeting will be held Wednesday, March 12, 2014, at 7:00 PM.
The meeting was adjourned.
