Principal’s Report - Principal John Cain:

Introduced new academic intervention- Brenda Farnsworth

QC Storm Hockey game is Saturday March 5th Grant Wood night. PTA will give $200 towards food for children going to the game with the Beyond the Bells program.

Conferences are next week

Spring break is the week following

Mr. Cain brought up the idea to have a sleep over night at the school.  Each child attending would need to have an adult stay with them overnight at the school.  Mr. Cain will gauge interest with teachers as there would need to be teacher volunteers for this.  If there is not interest the group discussed having an “Open Gym” night at the school instead.
