Out on recess: conflict during unstructured play time, parent express concern there’s been some aggression among children. Jeff is usually out there

Are we looking for a teacher to replace pregnant 4th grade teacher? Going through process to get a long-term sub. Goal is to try to get 1 long-term sub as much as possible. Been reaching out for some time now. Definitely a priority.

Welcome to reach out to Jeff individually for other concerns.

Katrina Wilson: PCNC Report

  1. Thank you to Jen Broomell for Sunshine Mural; every kid will get to put their handprints on the wall.
  2. Sydney noticed during carpool, some of the families don’t buckle up their kids when they get in the car. Need to make sure everyone is safe. Need safety booster chairs. HK Lions will conduct Drive with Aloha Campaign this Thursday, October 7.
  3. HPD can give you a ticket for not buckling up kids as we are dropping off or picking up
  4. Recycling Cages: fastest that has ever been done. 3rd grade class Ms. Piercy’s class helped but parent expressed concern that their child participated in sorting out recycling for safety reasons. Suggestions we should rotate student classes in to help sort, possible waivers, possible to get parents to come and their children can come
  5. Panda Express Fundraiser this Friday. Maybe we will get Saturday too. CPK next on the radar
  6. Jeff’s 10 year anniversary is coming up here. Maybe have Zippy’s do a Teacher Staff Lunch? Something to honor him.
  7. Yearbook Committee: normally PCNC doesn’t do it. Katrina is going to take it on. Need a Yearbook Committee to involve students and 2 teachers to take pix throughout the year. Need 2 parents to help with this effort. Uploading pix, etc.
